IRI Automates Big Data Integration Jobs with Oracle Scheduler

Dependent DW and Reorg Operations Can Run without ETL Suites

MELBOURNE, Fla., Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative Routines International (IRI), Inc., a leading developer of fast data management and data-centric protection software, has automated inter-dependent extraction (E), transformation (T), and loading (L) operations using Oracle's job scheduling engine, DBMS_SCHEDULER. An IRI white paper details and demonstrates the tie-in.

Data warehouse architects and DBAs use IRI FACT (Fast Extract), CoSort, and bulk database load utilities (like SQL*Loader) to perform ETL, accelerate existing ETL suites, or reorganize very large databases. According to Athena IT Solutions founder and BI/DW expert, Rick Sherman, "offloading to flat-file transforms and bulk-loading tables pre-sorted is the fastest, cheapest way to stage big data, and takes serious weight off the database."

After bringing these tasks into the popular IDE of Eclipse, "IRI went a step further and showed how Oracle users could perform ETL or set up unload/sort/reload (reorg) operations without costly ETL or scheduling packages," explained IRI Workbench developer Benjamin Burkett. Oracle-scheduled jobs can run inside the IRI Workbench GUI – which supports Oracle table connections for browsing and SQL operations – or in any database application context.

DBAs can specify not only when to initiate FACT unloads, CoSort sorts/transforms/reports, or bulk loads, but also set up dependencies between these processes. Burkett provided an example wherein a DBA "starts FACT at 2am, checks for success before running CoSort, and then confirms the table is not in use before running the pre-CoSort'ed direct path load into SQL*Loader."
