All the feature-functions listed below are supported in software and solutions within the IRI Data Manager suite, and the IRI Voracity total data management platform for data discovery, integration (ETL), migration, governance, and analytics.
Note: DTP refers to the Data Tools Platform plugin, and the Data Source Explorer that connects, reveals, and interacts with your RDB sources. DTP is included in the free IRI Workbench IDE, built on Eclipse™, which ships with all IRI software products.
Analyze data structures, keys, and enumerated domains in tables and file in the IRI Workbench GUI for Voracity.
Workbench includes Eclipse DTP and robust IRI wizards for ER Diagramming, Database (DB) Profiling, Flat-File Profiling, Metadata Discovery, and Dark Data Discovery for unstructured text sources. Use the DB Profiling wizard, for example, to generate selected column statistics, search for patterns and fuzzy value matches, and check referential integrity, or build entity-relationship models and diagrams for any connected DB schema.
Submit validation rules, discover column value anomalies, and silo data out of range ahead of data integration, quality, masking or test data operations in Voracity.
Data Modeling & Classification
Define and manage enterprise-wide data class libraries, and use them to apply data transformation, masking, quality, or test data generation rules at the field level -- ad hoc, or across multiple sources at once.
Use the Dark Data Discovery wizard to report on metadata in unstructured documents -- and define the DDF layouts for the structured files it creates -- from pattern-matching values in those documents.
Use automatic metadata conversion ("2DDF") utilities to create DDF form DDL, file structures, and third-party metadata structures.
Discover existing transaction and reference data. Use the MDM Data Unification wizard to identify, unify, and store master values.
Create composite data values as new template data types in SortCL for data integration, quality, and reporting tasks.
Build composite forms in RowGen for master test data.
