Build trust in your data

Reveal a single version of the truth by cleaning your dirty data. Define and standardize data with built-in address and data cleansing to uncover quality issues, expose hidden problems, and identify untapped relationships.

Enable unlimited scalability and high availability.

Improve performance and scale from one server to many to meet high-volume data needs with parallel processing, grid computing, and bulk data loading. Design data services to run in a top-down, right-to-left manner to execute queries automatically with multiple parallel threads. You can also execute the same job – whether in multiple parallel processes on one server or with multiple servers – to improve performance.

Treat your data as a high-value asset.

Secure data access with a public key and maintain data relevance and relationships while keeping sensitive information confidential, anonymous, and compliant. Support encryption, decryption, and masking as part of the regular transformation of the extract, transform, and load (ETL) process.

Stay connected to most data sources.

Leverage native support for most data sources including, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, IBM Informix, Oracle, HP Vertica, MySQL, Netezza, SAP Sybase, SQL Anywhere, ODBC, Persistent Cache, Attunity Connector, Flat Files and adapters for Apache Hive, HTTP, JDBC, JMS, MongoDB, and OData.

Platform Transforms

Transforms that are needed for general data movement operations. These transforms allow you to generate, map and merge rows from two or more sources, create SQL query operations (expressions, lookups, joins, and filters), perform conditional splitting, and so on.

1. Case.

Simplifies branch logic in data flows by consolidating case or decision making logic in one transform. Paths are defined in an expression table.

2. Map Operation.

Modifies data based on current operation codes and mapping expressions. The operation codes can then be converted between data manipulation operations.

3. Merge.

Unifies rows from two or more sources into a single target.

4. Query.

Retrieves a data set that satisfies conditions that you specify. A Query transform is similar to a SQL SELECT statement.

5. Row Generation.

Generates a column filled with integer values starting at zero and incrementing by one to the end value you specify.

6. SQL.

Performs the indicated SQL query operation.

7. Validation.

Ensures that the data at any stage in the data flow meets your criteria. You can filter out or replace data that fails your criteria.

8. Entity Extraction.

Extracts information (entities and facts) from unstructured data and creates structured data that can be used by various business intelligence tools.
