    Informatica Data Quality and Informatica Data ExplorerAdvanced Edition

    This section describes new features and enhancements to Informatica Data Quality and Informatica Data ExplorerAdvanced Edition.

    Analyst Viewer PermissionsYou can create a user or group in the Administrator tool with read-only permissions on objects in the Analyst tool.Analyst Viewer users and groups can view a profile, scorecard, bad or duplicate record table, or reference datatable. They cannot create, edit, or run an object or export profile results to reference tables.

    Informatica ContentYou can define an INFA_CONTENT environment variable on a PowerCenter Integration Service machine to setthe path PowerCenter uses to read reference data. Use this environment variable if you cannot install thereference data to the expected location on the PowerCenter machine.

    Informatica Data Quality TransformationsAddress Validator transformation

    You can configure the Address Validator transformation to generate Coding Accuracy Support System(CASS) reports for United States addresses and Software Evaluation and Recognition Program (SERP)reports for Canadian addresses. CASS and SERP reports verify that the address validation operationsperformed on the source address data meet standards set by the USPS and Canada Post.

    2

  • Multi-strategy transformations

    You can configure multiple strategies within a single transformation object for the following transformations:Case, Decision, Key Generator, Labeler, Match, Merge, Parser, and Standardizer. You can apply eachstrategy to a set of data ports in a mapplet or mapping.

    Decision transformation

    Use the Decision transformation to write business rules using IF-THEN-ELSE logic and regular expressionsand apply the rules to selected ports in a mapplet or mapping.

    Note: You must have Informatica Data Quality to use the Data Quality transformations.

    Mapping Export and ImportYou can use the Developer tool to import mappings, mapplets, transformations, and any reference table data usedby these objects to the Model repository in a single step.

    Mapping Performance¨ You can tune the performance of mappings by updating the mapping optimizer level through the mapping

    configuration or mapping deployment properties. The optimizer level determines which optimization methodsthat the Data Integration Service applies to the mapping at run time. You can choose no, minimal, normal, orfull optimization for mappings.

    Parameters and Parameter Files¨ You can create parameters to define values that change between mapping runs. For example, create a

    parameter to represent a connection so you can run one mapping with different relational source connections.Create a parameter file to define parameter values. The Data Integration Service applies the parameter valueswhen you run a mapping from the command line and specify the parameter file.

    Physical Data ObjectsCustomized physical data objects

    You can create customized physical data objects to perform the following tasks:

    ¨ Join source data that originates from the same source database.

    ¨ Select distinct values from the source.

    ¨ Filter rows when the Data Integration Service reads source data.

    ¨ Specify sorted ports.

    ¨ Specify an outer join instead of the default inner join.

    ¨ Create a custom query to issue a special SELECT statement for the Data Integration Service to readsource data.

    ¨ Add pre- and post-mapping SQL commands.

    ¨ Define parameters for the data object.

    ¨ Retain key relationships when you synchronize the object with the sources.

    You can add customized physical data objects to mappings and mapplets as read, write, or lookup objects.

    Create and import

    ¨ You can create physical data objects from flat file, nonrelational database, relational database, and SAPresources.

    ¨ You can create physical data objects from resources that contain Developer tool illegal characters orreserved words. For example, you can import a view named "CONCAT" or a table that contains a columnwith a period in the column name.

    Informatica Data Quality and Informatica Data Explorer Advanced Edition 3

  • ¨ You can import tables, synonyms, and views from databases that use mixed case metadata. For example,you can import tables "CUST" and "Cust" as separate physical data objects.

    ProfilesProfile comments

    You can choose to delete profile comments on a profile.

    Profile results

    ¨ You can profile multilingual data from different data objects and view profile results based on the localesettings in the browser. The Analyst tool changes the Datetime, Numeric, and Decimal datatypes based onthe browser locale.

    ¨ You can sort on multilingual data. The Analyst tool displays the sort order based on the browser locale.

    ¨ After you run a profile, the Analyst tool purges the last profile run results from the profiling warehouse.

    ¨ The profiling warehouse stores 16,000 unique highest frequency values including NULL values for profileresults by default. If there is at least one NULL value in the profile results, the Analyst tool can displayNULL values as patterns

    Running a profile

    ¨ After you add a rule to a profile that has previously run, you can select the rule and associated columnsand run the profile again. The Analyst tool displays the previous profile results and the recent rule andcolumns results. You can modify the rule and run the profile again to view changes to profile results for therule.

    ¨ When you run a profile, you can choose to discard the profile results for previously profiled columns anddisplay results for the columns and rules selected for the latest profile run.

    Drilling down on columns

    ¨ You can choose to drill down on profile data for a column.

    ¨ You can select the drill-down columns without profiling all the source columns again after you run theprofile.

    Repository¨ You can migrate objects from the Informatica Data Quality 8.6.2 repository to the 9.0.1 Model repository. You

    can also migrate reference data files used by the objects.

    Rules¨ You can choose to drill down on live data for a rule.

    ¨ You can select the rules for drill down without profiling all the source columns again after running the profile.

    Scorecards¨ You can group related scores within a scorecard to view a set of scores for a particular business concept.

    When you add a profile column to a scorecard, you can choose to add it to a group. You can add a score to agroup within a scorecard. You can move scores between groups within a scorecard and edit and removegroups from a scorecard.

    ¨ You can select columns in the scorecard before running a scorecard again. You can choose to drill down onlive data for columns in a score.

    ¨ You can view the total number of valid and not valid records and the refresh date for each score in thescorecard.

    4 Chapter 1: New Features and Enhancements (9.0.1)

  • Informatica Data ServicesThis section describes new features and enhancements to Informatica Data Services.

    Applications¨ Objects in the Application view are sorted by default.

    ¨ Projects in the Application view have a new icon. They do not use the folder icon anymore.

    ¨ You can rename an application in the Administrator tool.

    ¨ You can refresh the Application view to update newly deployed, undeployed, and restored applications.

    ¨ You can update an application to resolve the conflict when you use the Administrator tool to deploy anapplication with the same name as an existing application. Also, when you select the update or replace optionduring a conflict, you can select an option to stop the existing application if it is running.

    Custom Data Transformation¨ You can configure a Custom Data transformation in a mapping. The Custom Data transformation processes

    unstructured and semi-structured file formats, such as messaging formats, HTML pages, and PDF documents.The Custom Data transformation also processes structured formats such as ACORD, HL7, EDI-X-12,EDIFACT, and SWIFT. The Custom Data transformation calls a Data Transformation service to process thedata.

    Data Object CacheYou can purge data object and virtual table cache for an application. You can purge the cache from theApplications view in the Administrator tool. You can also purge cache with the infacmd PurgeDataObjectCachecommand line program.

    Mapping Performance¨ You can tune the performance of mappings by updating the mapping optimizer level through the mapping
