  • Patent number: 10248694
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes inserting a bloom filter creation stage after an inner data source identification stage, wherein a join operation is to be performed to join an outer data source with the inner data source. The method inserts a bloom filter search stage after an outer data source identification stage, wherein each row of data from the outer data source is searched against a bloom filter for the inner data source during the bloom filter search stage. The method initializes a read on the inner data source. Subsequent to determining the bloom filter creation stage is complete, the method initializes a read on the outer data source. The method performs the join operation at a join stage.

  • Patent number: 10120930
    Abstract: Entity mappings that produce matching entities for a first data asset having attributes and a second data asset having attributes are generated by: generating entity mappings that produce matching entities for a first data asset having attributes with attribute values and a second data asset having attributes with attribute values by: matching the attribute values of the attributes of the first data asset with the attribute values of the attributes of the second data asset, using the matching attribute values to generate matching attribute pairs, and using the matching attribute pairs to identify entity mappings; computing an entity mapping score for each of the entity mappings based on a combination of factors; ranking the entity mappings based on each entity mapping score; and using some of the ranked entity mappings to determine whether a same real-world entity is described by the first data asset and the second data asset.

  • Patent number: 9740749
    Abstract: Methods and arrangements for identifying related data in different data sets to assist in searching the data sets. A first data asset and a second data asset are accessed. Common entities are identified between the first and second data assets. A score is determined for the relationship between the first and second data assets, based on the identified common entities. One or more relationship contexts are determined for the relationship between the first and second data assets, and the relationship score and one or more relationship contexts are used to join at least a portion of each of the first and second data assets as a basis for subsequent searching. Other variants and embodiments are broadly contemplated herein.

  • Patent number: 9727604
    Abstract: A computer implemented method for generating code for an integrated data system. A mixed data flow is received. The mixed data flow contains mixed data flow operators, which are associated with multiple runtime environments. A graph is generated containing logical operators based on the mixed data flow in response to receiving the mixed data flow. The logical operators are independent of the plurality of runtime environments. The graph is converted to a model. The logical operators are converted to model operators associated with the multiple runtime environments. The model operators allow for analysis of operations for the mixed data flow. The model is converted into an execution plan graph. The execution plan graph is executable on different runtime environments.

  • Patent number: 9697301
    Abstract: Systems and associated methods for address standardization and applications related thereto are described. Embodiments exploit a common context in a taxonomy and a given address to detect and correct deviations in the address. Embodiments establish a possible path from a root of the taxonomy to a leaf in the taxonomy that can possibly generate a given address. Given a new address, embodiments use complete addresses, and/or segments or elements thereof, to compute the representations of the elements and find a closest matching leaf in the taxonomy. Embodiments then traverse the path to a root node to detect the agreement and disagreement between the path and the address entry. Taxonomical structured is thus used to detect, segregate and standardize the expected fields.

  • Patent number: 9659072
    Abstract: A computer software implemented method for transforming a first extract transform load (ETL) job having at least some unload transform load (UTL) portions. The method includes the following steps: (i) decomposing the first ETL job into an intermediate set of one or more jobs; and (ii) for each job of the intermediate set, transforming the job into a transactionally equivalent job to yield a final set of one or more jobs. The decomposing is performed so that each job of the intermediate jobs set is a Simple UTL job. The transforming is performed so that each job of the final set includes no UTL portions.

  • Patent number: 9569486
    Abstract: An embodiment provides intermediate data derived in the form of column stores which are in turn based on hierarchical data stores. This intermediate data represents a reduced subset of data matched appropriately to a query (or modified query) such that the amount of data handled in a query processing task on large data is greatly reduced. An embodiment may appropriately choose column data stores and/or modify queries in order leverage parallelization techniques such as map-reduce in order to query large data. The result is the ability to query large data stores in parallel while reducing the amount of data that must be handled.

  • Patent number: 9477651
    Abstract: A method, a computer program product and a system identify partition locations within an extended markup language (XML) document without parsing so as to process portions of said document in parallel. The XML document includes sections required to remain continuous. The document is scanned for continuous sections without parsing, and boundaries of the initial partitions are adjusted to reside outside the continuous sections to determine resulting partitions for the document. The resulting partitions may be processed in parallel to provide the document information for storage.
