iWay Software Helps Customers Cleanse Big Data With Latest Update

Data Quality Center and Other Updates to iWay Software Help Ensure Big Data Is Clean Data

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 15, 2011) - iWay Software, a division of Information Builders and an innovator of enterprise integration solutions, today announced a series of upgrades to its integration products, which now enhance its real-time data cleansing to big data sources. Included are updates to iWay Software's Data Quality Center, Data Steward Portal, and Master Data Center, all designed to improve users' ability to profile, correct, and manage the consistency of any type of information within the enterprise.

Big data -- the combination of high-volume, high-velocity, high-variety, structured, and unstructured data -- is a phenomenon used by many government agencies and corporations. The inherent complexities of big data can have a hugely negative impact on overall data quality, hindering its accuracy and leading to inaction or costly mistakes. The updates to iWay Software's Data Quality Center include a redesigned database layer and an enhanced matching engine, which improve performance, capacity, and compatibility with these environments and more. Validating, standardizing, and enriching data before its stored results in reduced costs and improved efficiency.

"The only way businesses can get meaningful insight from their data is if they know the data is clean and accurate," said Gregory Dorman, general manager of the iWay Software division. "There's a tendency among businesses now to save as much as they can and worry about quality later. While storage is relatively inexpensive, the amount of time it takes to standardize data, combined with the potential for drawing misleading conclusions, as a result of poor data quality, can prove quite costly. With the new iWay Software Data Quality Center, incoming data can be standardized and validated in real time, leading to a more efficient, affordable, and reliable solution for our customers."

iWay Software's Data Profiler was also updated today to version 4.0. Included in this update are a number of architectural changes as well as full integration and support for smartphones and tablets. Together, the iWay Software and iWay Data Profiler updates present a complete big data solution for business users in the office or on the road.
