“Version 5 brings a large number of new features and improvements,” says Michal Klaus, CEO of Ataccama. “Among the most important are improved usability of the application, specifically for new users, improved features for data analysis and parallel unification.”

The new version brings a significantly improved user experience, making the tool more efficient. The updated version now includes interactive validation of code and configurations, testing of expressions, regular expressions and patterns. Beginner users will appreciate the number of commented samples together with video demonstration tutorials.

During initial data analysis (profiling), users can now leverage more advanced functions, such as frequency analysis of masks, histograms of group counts, the ability to drill down to details of data records and export of outputs to XML and HTML. The optimized core of DQC allows achieving processing speeds in the range of a million records per minute during profiling.

Parallel unification allows simultaneous processing of batch data together with concurrent online requests.  To allow continuity of service, it is important to allow changing reference databases while the server is running. “This is a crucial requirement “, adds Klaus, “the tool is deployed as part of key processes in large enterprises and thus has to guarantee high availability and reliability “.
