IRI to Debut Data Vault Generation Wizard at 2019 Data Vault Consortium

Data Management ISV Bundling DV Modeling, Migration and Test Data in Voracity Platform

Melbourne, FL - May 14, 2019 - Innovative Routines International (IRI), Inc. (, The CoSort® Company, has announced its development of a multi-function Data Vault® generation wizard for inclusion in the IRI Voracity® data management platform. The new IRI “Data Vault Generator” migrates relational database schema and data to Data Vault 2.0 architecture, and creates referentially and business-key correct data. IRI will demonstrate these new capabilities at the Worldwide Data Vault Consortium (WWDVC2019) next week in Stowe, Vermont.

IRI Voracity is an end-to-end data management software platform built on Eclipse™ for marshaling data in multiple sources, big and small, structured and unstructured. Voracity can perform, speed, and combine dozens of key activities in the areas of data discovery, integration, migration, governance, and analytics. Beyond functional versatility, Voracity is best known in the data warehousing industry for its ETL speed and affordability. Powered by interchangeable IRI CoSort or Hadoop® data transformation engines, Voracity also includes IRI RowGen technology for producing safe, referentially correct test data targets.

Voracity was first introduced to the WWDVC community last year through IRI’s first sponsored exhibit, and to an international group of data warehousing consultants and analysts in an online demonstration organized by the Boulder Business Intelligence Brain Trust (BBBT®).

The wizard will be bundled at no additional cost into Voracity, allowing existing database users to quickly:

  1. convert their relational database models to a compatible Data Vault model that is also compliant with Snowflake database DDL;
  2. replicate their production data into Data Vault schema;
  3. and/or, populate a prototype Data Vault database with realistic, referentially correct test data

all while providing options to customize satellite table and business key assignments.

“We’re excited about what this connection to Data Vault represents,” remarked IRI Sr. Software Engineer Claudia Irvine. “Through this wizard, data architects can leverage the proven VLDB data movement and manipulation power of CoSort, Voracity’s rich DB administration, ETL and test data workflow environment, and the parallel database processing and agility-enabling design of Data Vault architecture,” she added. The Data Vault Generator wizard in Voracity bridges these benefits through a seamless, automatic process that speeds time to prototyping and production in Data Vault environments.
