Pervasive Data Profiler 4 Powers Enhanced Data Assessment, Validation and Compliance
Customer-Driven Performance, Usability and Analysis Improvements Provide Increased Speed and Agility in Data Validation and Reporting
AUSTIN, Texas, June 11 /-- Pervasive Software(R) Inc. (NASDAQ:PVSW), a global value leader in embeddable data management and integration software, today announced the release of Pervasive(R) Data Profiler(TM) 4, the latest version of its versatile data quality tool for rapid, comprehensive profiling. Pervasive Data Profiler 4 features an enriched user interface, engine upgrade, enhanced analysis and reporting, and additional deployment options. The new release provides users with a richer, more robust tool that is faster and easier to use, ideal for a wide range of organizations such as healthcare and financial services companies that need to validate large volumes of transactional data for policy or regulatory requirements, including HIPAA, NPI, Sarbanes-Oxley, the Patriot Act, fair-lending policies, identity theft protection and management directives.
"Data profiling has emerged as a critical technical component supporting line of business requirements for data integration, data quality, and data governance," says David Loshin, president of Knowledge Integrity, Inc. "Pervasive's ability to provide a data profiling product that is easy to use and integrate into a business environment while providing scalable high performance is truly welcome in the data management market."
Built on Pervasive DataRush(TM), a powerful engine capable of leveraging multi-core processors to crunch massive data volumes rapidly and affordably, Pervasive Data Profiler is a highly scalable, data-intensive application that provides hyper-parallel data processing. With proactive auditing of data before, during or after loading processes, Pervasive Data Profiler delivers succinct, objective and actionable results on the entire stack of data in every field-not just a sample of data. The agility of Pervasive Data Profiler allows it to test against ever-changing business data quality needs and compliance regulations, providing graphical and detailed reports on "pass" and "fail" results.
"The nature of our mortgage analysis business requires us to meet stringent data quality standards. In addition, because we receive data from hundreds of disparate data sources and have hundreds of millions of records to maintain, we needed a profiling tool with robust functionality capable of immense speed and scalability," said Carlos Santiago, vice president of Data Content at Loan Performance. "We were happy to be one of the first beta customers for Pervasive Data Profiler 4. Having run it through the rigors of our data analysis process, we believe it will be an integral part of our success in managing our data content and data quality."
New features of Pervasive Data Profiler 4 include:
-- New user interface in an Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) -- The user interface with Eclipse's open-source RCP is easier to use, and the short ramp-up time makes users more profiling-efficient. In addition, error handling and reporting have been improved, along with better debugging and validation capabilities of created scripts.
-- Rich, actionable 3-D reporting -- New drilldown capabilities allow business users to view raw data and anomalies and trace the root cause of data behaviors faster.
-- More out-of-the-box metrics and business rules -- End users find it easier and faster to get to results without creating custom queries.
-- Improved custom "auto generation" capabilities -- Users can start profiling out of the box and automatically 'suggest' a suite of data tests that can be customized for each source/use case.
-- Reusability and sharing of profiling rules -- Sharing artifacts with other users and reusing capabilities such as data connection and extraction definitions ensure users are more productive when profiling.
-- New join capability -- Join multiple heterogeneous files in a single run.
"The frightening reality is that most organizations have no clue as to the state of their data quality," said Mike Hoskins, CTO and general manager, Integration Products at Pervasive. "For companies with tight resources, aggressive timelines and large amounts of transactional data, rapid, comprehensive data quality assessment is essential to avoid project delays and cost overruns. Pervasive Data Profiler 4 is the secret weapon to assess and validate data so downstream projects can be successful."
