Access, connect, integrate and analyse data from a wide array of applications
Sagent Data Flow
Deploy Sagent Data Flow to address the two most-daunting parts of achieving sound reports - accessing data from various sources and manipulating it to create meaningful reports.
- Key Features
Sagent Data Flow from Pitney Bowes Software is a powerful and flexible integration engine that collates data from disparate sources and provides a comprehensive set of data transformation tools to enhance its business value.
Sagent Data Flow allows for analysing information and creating meaningful reports to aid understanding of your business. One of Pitney Bowes' Location Intelligence solutions, Sagent Data Flow provides customer profiling, data warehousing, ETL and business intelligence - leveraging real data to make smarter decisions.
Render data visually with Sagent Data Flow
Sagent Data Flow incorporates a powerful visual development environment that helps to speed up and simplify the creation of sophisticated data transformations, to support both business and technical users. Sagent Data Flow's new and improved interface reduces the learning curve as end users can master solutions more quickly than other Business Intelligence (BI) tools.
Sagent Data Flow supports many data formats for greater efficiency
Available modules within Sagent Data Flow include Mainframe, AS/400 and R/3(SAP). Sagent Data Flow natively handles all major RDBM systems, such as Oracle, IBM DB2 and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as most major text-based data formats, including XML. This ability to read data in its native format eliminates the time-consuming and expensive task of writing custom extract programs.
64-bit for faster processing
Featuring 64-bit processing power Sagent Data Flow achieves increased performance and greater scalability. It also supports a higher number of concurrent users, provides faster processing and handles larger data loads.
Access, transform and analyse data faster with Sagent
Sagent Data Flow allows users to rapidly access, connect, integrate and analyse data from a wide array of applications, databases and data files. It can also quickly and easily incorporate any combination of these data sources into a single process, where other systems require you to perform join functions within the database.
Achieve easier migration between environments
Why deal with hard-coded connection parameters? With Sagent Data Flow, you don't have to. Just point your plan to the desired environment, eliminating the need to create multiple plans. If you are working in a large scale application, you can also work in physically partitioned arenas.
Reusable sub-component support
Increase your productivity by reusing developed modules as you would a subroutine - a very user-friendly feature for developers and business analysts. Common functionality used in different places can be developed, maintained and managed centrally to reduce redundancies that waste time and allow for error.
Global enterprises that need to glean data from around the world will find Sagent Data Flow’s Unicode support a huge benefit. Unicode, which enables all international character sets, means that no matter where the work is done, it can be collected and stored from around the globe.
Improved look-up performance and functionality
Perhaps the most widely utilised Sagent Data Flow transforms is the "key look-up," enhanced for greater productivity and ease of use. Now you can return multiple columns in one transform, simplifying your plan. Sagent Data Flow adds new comparison operators, which greatly reduce the number of manual modifications. And the memory and caching of the key look-up has been reconfigured for stronger performance.
New transforms for greater efficiency
The latest release of Sagent Data Flow packages three new transforms designed specifically at the request of our user community. They are: Mark Duplicate Rows, Filtered Splitter and Multi-Condition Filter. These transforms enhance productivity and speed up the development process dramatically.
Automatic documentation of flow
Eliminate the burden of documentation for development while enhancing the quality of the development process altogether. With Sagent Data Flow, the documentation completes automatically and generates an HTML file.
Track plan changes
So, how did we get to this point? Every data analyst knows meticulous recording of plan changes is required for accountability. Sagent Data Flow now documents this automatically, so you can focus on moving the plan forward, increasing efficiency and productivity.
