  • Patent number: 10311042
    Abstract: The illustrative systems and methods advantageously reduce the amount of storage space occupied by data that no longer has a useful lifeā€”as established by the data objects' user(s) and overcoming predetermined rules required by information management policies. An illustrative data agent may receive instructions from an illustrative storage manager to perform secondary copy operations for a given set of data objects. The instructions may generally instruct that expiry-marked data objects are to be treated based on parsing each data object's user-supplied expiry timeframe.

  • Patent number: 10296625
    Abstract: Methods, systems and articles of manufacture for discovering relationships among data elements within a dataset are disclosed. A first relationship is identified between a first data element and a second data element by identifying a correlation between a first attribute of the first data element and the first attribute of a second data element. A second relationship indicator is generated that is indicative of a relationship between the first data element and the second data element based on the correlation between the first attribute of the first and second data elements. Various embodiments can identify implicit relationships across one or more levels of explicit relationships where the explicit relationships can be across different attributes. Such techniques can be employed in various types of application programs.

  • Patent number: 10275507
    Abstract: Embodiments are provided for replicating a relational source database associated with a transaction log of the relational source database. In operation, embodiments may perform receiving a request for replicating data of the relational source database to a relational target database and identifying a first start position within the transaction log. Upon having identified the first start position, embodiments may further perform waiting at least a time period for ensuring that each transaction currently executing on the relational source database at a moment of receiving said request has terminated at an end of said time period. After having waited said time period, embodiments may perform an asynchronously creating of a copy of data of the relational source database to produce a created copy. In turn, embodiments may perform writing the created copy to the relational target database and identifying a repair start position within the transaction log.

  • Patent number: 10235368
    Abstract: A system and method for updating files in a file system that is linked to a database system which stores metadata pertaining to the files. Changes intended to be made to an original file are written to a replacement file, and when the user is ready to move the changes onto the original file, a database transaction is commenced. If the transaction commits, the replacement file is renamed to the original file and the file security attributes of the original file are applied. Otherwise, the rename operation does not take place, thereby ensuring consistency between the metadata in the dbms system and the file system data that is represented by the metadata.

  • Patent number: 10235452
    Abstract: An apparatus comprises a processing platform configured to implement an expert recommender engine. The expert recommender engine receives information relating to a communication from a user device, and identifies at least one subject matter expert for the communication based on the received information and unstructured text data of a service events database. The expert recommender engine is associated with a clustering module that separates the unstructured text data into topic clusters. The expert recommender engine comprises a collaborative filtering module that receives the topic clusters from the clustering module and utilizes the topic clusters to identify the subject matter expert. The user device is connected with an expert device corresponding to the identified subject matter expert. The expert recommender engine may utilize structured data, social media data and customer satisfaction survey data in combination with the received information and the topic clusters to identify the subject matter expert.

  • Patent number: 10229200
    Abstract: Data elements from data sources and having a data value set are linked by using hash functions to determine a dimensionally reduced instance signature for each data element based on all data values associated with that data element to yield a plurality of dimensionally reduced instance signatures of equivalent fixed size such that similarities among the data values in the data value sets across all data elements is maintained among the plurality of instance signatures. Candidate pairs of data elements to link are identified using the plurality of instance signatures in locality sensitive hash functions, and a similarity index is generated for each candidate pair using a pre-determined measure of similarity. Candidate pairs of data elements having a similarity index above a given threshold are linked.

  • Patent number: 10223329
    Abstract: An approach for ontological policy based data collection, processing, and negotiation for data in view of analytics is provided. The approach searches one or more data sources for data related to a data request. The approach collects data related to the data request from the one or more data sources. The approach determines whether one or more attributes generated from the data request match one or more descriptors associated with the data related to the data request. The approach creates one or more annotated ontologies for the data related to the data request. The approach displays a hierarchical visualization of the one or more annotated ontologies for the data related to the data request. The approach updates the one or more annotated ontologies for the data related to the data request based, at least in part, on an evaluation of the quality of the one or more data selections.

  • Patent number: 10223394
    Abstract: With respect to reconciling data between a source system and one or more destination systems, a source agent obtains data from the source system. A destination agent obtains data from the destination system. The source and destination agents generate digests of the data obtained from the source and destination systems, respectively. The digests are provided to a consistency service for storage. The digests of the data stored at the source system are stored in a first tree data structure, such as a variant of a Merckle tree. The digests of the data stored at the destination system are stored in a second tree data structure, which might also be a variant of a Merckle tree. A comparison of the trees may be made in order to determine the consistency level of the data stored at the source system and the destination systems.
