  • Patent number: 10929378
    Abstract: Instances of client applications running independently on different devices are monitored to generate metadata records that are stored in cloud storage. Metadata records in cloud storage that have an aspect in common are grouped and used for comparative analysis. For example, metadata records for instances of the same client application, database, query or database structure may be grouped. Reports may be generated based on the analysis. The reports may indicate comparative performance, irregular activity, patch version and configurations associated with performance degradation, and recommended actions to improve performance.

  • Patent number: 10885089
    Abstract: A method enables identification of a similarity level between a user-provided data item and a data item within a set of data documents.

  • Patent number: 10872065
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system and methodology to facilitate the automated creation of an XML object model which overlays a standard relational database to allow both saving and retrieval of data via hierarchical XML objects from within the actual database server itself. The Automated Database Object Model (ADOM) process generates a set of log tables, triggers, stored procedures, functions, and views for all objects as determined by a database schema interrogation process. The result is a select query for every hierarchical object in the database, and a single point of entry stored procedure for all inserts, updates, and deletes. A managed application programming interface (API) is also provided to automatically generate a class object library in the application layer which matches the automated database object model, thus abstracting the application developer from directly managing the underlying database structure.

  • Patent number: 10733156
    Abstract: The software system discretises continuous attributes by initially sorting attribute value pairs. The system creates partitions based on unique attribute index. The computing system adds attribute value records to the partition element until minimum frequency has been reached. The system calculates whether new partition element is mutually insignificant compared with each of partition elements in a bucket. The system adds the mutually insignificant partition element into the bucket; otherwise, the system closes the bucket and creates a new bucket to add the mutually significant partition element to the new bucket. After all the buckets have been created, the system groups buckets of continuous attributes in to a bucket group so that the buckets in a group are mutually insignificant. If bucket is mutually significant, the system creates a new bucket group and adds subsequent mutually significant bucket to said new bucket group.
