Voracity Overview Features Technical Details GUI Platforms & Pricing Why It's Better Resources

IRI Voracity® is a full stack data lifecycle management platform that seamlessly combines CoSort®, Eclipse™, Hadoop®, and other best-in-class technologies. You won't believe how much you can do.

Since 1978, IRI CoSort has accelerated and expanded data transformation work. It is a proven: ETL optimizer, BI data preparer, DB load and query accelerator, data validation and quality tool, report generator, data converter, and it can mask PII and build test data.

Today, IRI Voracity harnesses the power of CoSort and Hadoop, and the familiarity and interoperability of Eclipse -- plus plug-ins like Erwin Mapping Manager and KNIME -- to deliver and enhance data discovery, integration, migration, governance, and analytics.
