Linear regression is a staple data analysis function for financial, economic, research, and many other disciplines, that helps discover new data correlations. Users of the IRI Voracity platform can now simultaneously process big data from any number of sources and present customized trend lines to help business users make predictions.
There is now a bulk/batch Change Data Capture (CDC) wizard in the IRI Workbench GUI for Voracity, built on Eclipse™. This new graphical report builder compares previous and current data sources based on a flag field you select, and gives you the option of producing five different targets — Cumulative, Delete, Equal, Insert, and Update — or any combination thereof.
IRI RowGen users can generate structurally and referentially correct synthetic test data for an entire database in a single operation. The test data reflects production characteristics (such as values ranges and frequencies) normally encountered in database or ETL operations, but does not require access to, or the masking of, real data.
In the course of legacy platform and/or application migration, COBOL users often need to convert their binary and index files into a human-readable, ASCII-numeric target. One of these older formats is the ACUCOBOL Vision1 file, which we discussed previously in this article.
In the previous article, “Affordable BIRT Acceleration via CoSort,” we explained the nature and benefits of a new seamless integration between the SortCL big data preparation program in IRI CoSort and thus IRI Voracity and the Business Intelligence Reporting Tool (BIRT) in Eclipse.
