Technology – Why Business Intelligence (BI) needs a Semantic Data Model

A semantic data model is a method of organizing and representing corporate data that reflects the meaning and relationships among data items. This method of organizing data helps end users access data autonomously using familiar business terms such as revenue, product, or customer via the BI (business intelligence) and other analytics tools. The use of a semantic model offers a consolidated, unified view of data across the business allowing end-users to obtain valuable insights quickly from large, complex, and diverse data sets.

Extraction, Transformation & Loading Vs. Enterprise Application Integration

Over recent years, business enterprises relying on accurate and consistent data to make informed decisions have been gravitating towards integration technologies. The subject of Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and Extraction, Transformation & Loading (ETL) lately seems to pop up in most Enterprise Information Management conversations. From an architectural perspective, both techniques share a striking similarity. However, they essentially serve different purposes when it comes to information management. We’ve decided to do a little bit of research and establish the differences between the two integration technologies. Enterprise Application Integration Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is an integration framework that consists of technologies

Technology – Using Logical Data Lakes

Today, data-driven decision making is at the center of all things. The emergence of data science and machine learning has further reinforced the importance of data as the most critical commodity in today’s world. From FAAMG (the biggest five tech companies: Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, and Google) to governments and non-profits, everyone is busy leveraging the power of data to achieve final goals. Unfortunately, this growing demand for data has exposed the inefficiency of the current systems to support the ever-growing data needs. This inefficiency is what led to the evolution of what we today know as Logical Data Lakes.

Infosphere Information Server (IIS) – Where you can view DataStage and QualityStage Logs?

During the course of the week, the discussion happened regarding the different places where a person might read the DataStage and QualityStage logs in InfoSphere. I hadn’t really thought about it, but here are a few places that come to mind: IBM InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage Operations Console IBM InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage Director client IBM InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage Designer client by pressing Ctrl+L Related Reference IBM Knowledge Center> InfoSphere Information Server 11.7.0 > InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage > Monitoring jobs https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSZJPZ_11.3.0/com.ibm.swg.im.iis.ds.monitor.doc/topics/cont_dsqsmonitor.html IBM Knowledge Center > InfoSphere Information Server 11.7.0 > Installing > Troubleshooting software installation > Log files https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSZJPZ_11.7.0/com.ibm.swg.im.iis.productization.iisinfsv.install.doc/topics/ts_cont_logfiles.html

Essbase Connector Error – Client Commands are Currently Not Being Accepted

While investigating a recent Infosphere Information Server (IIS), Datastage, Essbase Connect error I found the explanations of the probable causes of the error not to be terribly meaningful.  So, now that I have run our error to ground, I thought it might be nice to jot down a quick note of the potential cause of the ‘Client Commands are Currently Not Being Accepted’ error, which I gleaned from the process. Error Message Id IIS-CONN-ESSBASE-01010 Error Message An error occurred while processing the request on the server. The error information is 1051544 (message on contacting or from application:[<<DateTimeStamp>>]Local////3544/Error(1013204) Client Commands are
