Big Data 50: Companies Driving Innovation in 2022

Big Data Trailblazer


IRI Voracity® manipulates and manages a huge range and volume of data from a single pane of glass built on Eclipse™. Use Voracity to rapidly and reliably discover, integrate, migrate, govern, and analyze data on-premise or in the cloud, while addressing all ‘V’ challenges of big data:

Data from internal and public sources are growing exponentially. Voracity’s long proven IRI CoSort engine performs and combines multi-gigabyte transforms in seconds, besting legacy sort, BI, DB, and ETL tool speeds by 2-20X.

The myriad structured and unstructured sources is beyond most tools. Voracity supports more than 150 data sources and targets which include legacy and EDI files, multiple and multi-byte data and endian types, every RDBMS, plus many big data and cloud/SaaS sources.

CDR, IOT, social, and transactional data come fast, and at different intervals. CoSort or seamlessly integrated Hadoop engines in Voracity scale workloads across commodity hardware. Voracity can also process real-time, near-real-time, or streaming DB, file, or message data through Kafka or MQTT, pipes or procedures, Spark or Storm, and IRI Ripcurrent.

Low quality data lowers analytic and testing value, and PII puts you at risk. Voracity’s validation, scrubbing, enrichment, and unification features all improve data quality. Its embedded data classification, discovery, and masking capabilities—plus database subsetting and realistic test data synthesis—help you nullify breaches, enhance DevOps, and comply with data privacy laws.

As you (re)consider your informational and decision needs from data, consider the value of having a true production analytic platform that marries data preparation with analytics and visualization. Or, combine Voracity with DataSwitch for self-service data preparation and codeless data engineering to facilitate data democratization.

Today’s enterprise organizations face increasingly complex data environments. As they continue to generate escalating volumes of data, the need to understand their data’s history—to know where it came from and where it’s going—becomes paramount to their success as a company.

That’s where MANTA comes in. With our fully automated data lineage platform, we give enterprises a detailed, accurate, semantic map of their data pipeline—and the power to master it. And in doing so, we help them fully recognize their potential as data-driven companies.

Our data lineage platform reaches every corner of an organization’s data environment to restore observability, keep their data pipeline healthy, and help them get the most out of their data. The combination of data lineage harvested across multiple sources in an automated way—and a powerful semantic layer on top of it—gives data users a complete, clear, and comprehensive map of all data flows, sources, transformations, and dependencies.

Using MANTA, enterprises can manage end-to-end data lineage across their data lifecycle while achieving regulatory compliance, enhancing their data governance framework, speeding up migration projects, and shortening delivery schedules.
