iWay Software Extends Data Profiling Capabilities With iWay Data Profiler

New Offering Works With iWay Software's Data Quality Center to Enhance and Streamline Data Profiling, Without Additional Client Software, Plug-Ins, or Report Viewers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - iWay Software, an Information Builders company and an innovator of enterprise integration solutions, today announced the release of iWay Data Profiler, a product that enables users to query, report, analyze, deliver, and display electronic profiling data in any way they choose. Backed by mature tools for data quality monitoring, reporting, and analytics, iWay Data Profiler integrates output from iWay Software's Data Quality Center (DQC) with business intelligence (BI), enabling administrators to view, monitor, compare, and report on the quality and other key indicators of the mission-critical data of their organization.

iWay DQC generates advanced data profiling information, allowing users to define custom business rules and determine basic data statistics, uniqueness, frequency, and masks. iWay Data Profiler takes the information provided by iWay DQC one step further, enabling information archiving for on-demand reporting, as well as additional graphical and intuitive analysis of the variance in data profiles over different time periods. Additionally, with the new product, drill-down data can be collected in a database so the exact records that fall into one of the profiled categories can be displayed.

"In an increasingly competitive market, our customers need solutions that work together to streamline business operations and provide real-time data management. iWay Data Profiler does just that by allowing users to harness information assets provided by their existing iWay Software solutions in new and unique ways," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "The new iWay Data Profiler was specifically designed to enhance an organization's integration and data profiling capabilities. Not only is this new offering the perfect complement to iWay DQC, but it also eliminates the need for organizations to purchase expensive bolt-on software and plug-ins, meaning our customers save big on costs."

With the release of iWay Data Profiler, organizations now have the ability to extend powerful data profiling capabilities to anyone who needs them. In addition, iWay Data Profiler administrators can now:

--  Collect profiling data from iWay DQC
--  Tag and archive profiling data input as a set into an associated RDBMS
    for easy retrieval
--  View the data profiling set using advanced data manipulation and
--  Compare multiple archived data profiling sets to view the variance in
    profiling data
--  Print/export any of these views in industry-standard formats like
    HTML, PDF, and Excel
--  Share data with other users across the intranet/Internet

Sabre Airline Solutions uses iWay Data Quality Center to ensure the quality and integrity of origin and destination (O&D) information, which it collects from nearly every airline worldwide. "We collect millions of rows of passenger information from the airlines every month," said Jeff Pelletier, director of product management and delivery, Airport Data Intelligence, Sabre Airline Solutions. "We are using iWay Data Quality Center to detect errors and anomalies as the data is loaded, so our clients know the data is accurate."
