  • Patent number: 10997192
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for implementing a data stream correlation user interface. The data stream correlation user interface provides workflows for selecting individual data sources from a matrix of data sources, identifying individual data fields of the data sources, establishing criteria for determining correlations between them, and reviewing and enabling user verification of correlated data sources. Correlations may be established based on the values of data fields in individual records of the data sources, and may be determined based on correspondences or associations between the values, lookup tables, formulas, user-specified criteria, or other relationships.

  • Patent number: 10997193
    Abstract: A method and system for managing queries in business intelligence platforms. It is determined that at least one requirement to complete a first query exceeds a threshold and in response, a redacted report failing to exceed the threshold is generated. The first query requests data from at least one business intelligence content from a first geographical region. In response to detecting a rejection, by a user, of the redacted report after the user had been prompted, to accept or reject the redacted report: (i) the first query is converted to a second query configured to be used by an Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) program from a second geographical region; and (ii) a report responsive to the first query is generated.

  • Patent number: 10896175
    Abstract: A dependency is created between a first search query and a second search query. The first search query defines a first data processing pipeline and the second search query defines a second data processing pipeline that extends the first data processing pipeline. A modification is detected to the first data processing pipeline defined by the first search query. Based on the modification to the first data processing pipeline being detected, the dependency is enforced such that the second data processing pipeline is modified to extend the modified first data processing pipeline. The modification to the first data processing pipeline can include a first set of pipelined commands corresponding to the first search query being modified, and the dependency can be enforced by causing a second set of pipelined commands corresponding to the second search query to be modified to include the modified first set of pipelined commands.
