  • Patent number: 10262030
    Abstract: A data recipe may be automatically generated to provide requested information to a user. After the information is requested, one or more data sources may be interrogated to discover a plurality of data types of data stored in the data sources. The data types may be categorized to define a plurality of data recipe ingredients that are likely to be needed to provide the requested information. The data recipe ingredients may be compared with a reference data recipe. Based on the results of the comparison, a new data recipe that provides the requested information may be made by either modifying the reference data recipe or by proceeding independently of the reference data recipe. The new data recipe may, for example, calculate a key performance indicator used to measure organizational performance.

  • Publication number: 20170351407
    Abstract: A data analysis system may automatically suggest data visualizations to a user. A primary data visualization may be displayed to graphically illustrate a primary data set of a database. Criteria may be automatically applied to the database to identify a secondary data set that meets the criteria. A secondary data visualization that graphically illustrates the secondary data visualization and/or a corresponding indicator may be displayed. Multiple visualizations and/or indicators may be displayed, and the user may select one for viewing. The criteria may again be applied to the database to identify a tertiary data set. An analysis path may be recorded to enable the user to easily view the decisions made and/or the data visualizations viewed. The criteria may include determination that the secondary data set has the desired amount of data, has unique data types or descriptors, includes data previously selected by the user, or the like.

  • Publication number: 20130268564
    Abstract: A method of creating a family tree includes receiving genealogy data from at least one primary source and creating one or more node records and one or more link records using the genealogy data. Individual node records may be compared to identity pairs of records having similar data. For each identified pair of individual node records, the method includes comparing related individual node records and deciding based on predetermined criteria whether the identified pair of individual node records represent the same person. The method also includes consolidating the information from a plurality of records determined to represent the same person into a single person record.

  • Patent number: 8019719
    Abstract: Systems and methods for partitioning information across multiple storage devices in a web server environment. The system comprises a web server database which includes information related creating a web site. The information is divided into partitions within the database. One of the partitions includes user information and another of the partitions includes content for the web site. Portions of the content for the web site is replicated and maintained within the partition including the user information. Further, a portion of the user information is replicated and maintained in the partition where the content for the web site is maintained. The methods include dividing information into partitions, de-normalizing the received data and replicating the data portions into the various web site locations.
