DataSwitch, IRI Partner to Modernizes Data Engineering, Security & Self-Service
September 21, 2021
and Innovative Routines International have partnered to create an end-to-end,
multi-featured metadata and data engineering environment to: convert legacy data
and ETL tools, create and orchestrate data integration jobs with AI, mask PII,
and wrangle data in business-friendly ways for analytics.
The strategic alliance underway involves deep levels of metadata and operational
integration that leverage the front-end ergonomic and functional strengths of
DataSwitch IP, and the back-end data transformation speed and security strengths
of the IRI Voracity data management software. Both companies and their partners
can sell and support an on-premise or AWS web server "data buffet" for:
Legacy Data Modernization
supporting the ergonomic migration of schema, data, and ETL processes from older
data warehouses and ETL tools, to modern, Voracity-powered cloud data warehouses
and data integration services. For example, SQL or Informatica data mapping jobs
can be quickly and accurately converted to faster and more affordable Voracity
ETL jobs orchestrated in Apache Airflow.
Self-Service Data Engineering
enabling business users to simplify both structured and unstructured data
integration and security through data catalogs and predictive data mapping which
results in domain-specific, Voracity-powered process automation and security.
For example, beyond DBs and EDI files, users can graphically parse and structure
PDF data, then map, mask, munge, and mine it.
a conversational, AI-driven "Data-as-a-Service" to streamline and drive data and
analytics consumption across the enterprise. For example, business users can
ingest and integrate data in a Voracity-populated and -regulated data lake to
feed their chosen analytic target. This solution will address a global big data
and analytics market growing annually at 12.8% through 2025 (source: IDC
Between the DIY data management that DataSwitch offers in the cloud, and the
proven performance of Voracity in data integration, cleansing, and masking, the
combined offering will provide a uniquely powerful, end-to-end solution for
managing and leveraging data, according to DataSwitch President Karthikeyan
Viswanathan. "ETL and BI users can migrate from a legacy data warehouse or build
a modern production analytics platform with speed, compliance, and
extensibility," he said.
IRI Voracity SVP David Friedland agreed, and added that DataSwitch introduces
web-facing user management and job design ergonomics to the Voracity data
manipulation, masking, munging and mining engine, as well as deep learning,
graphical lineage, central monitoring, and more. "With our agile teams and
affordable technologies interfacing smoothly, we can provide an all-inclusive
system for more BI/DW end-users needing state-of-the-art solutions to their many
data management challenges," he observed.
