Data Services Product Homepage. Testing the new match review feature in Informt... SAP Information Steward 4.1 is currently in ramp-up phase. I tested the new match review feature. The match review is a tool for a data steward for reviewing/approving potential duplicate records. It relies on the match transform executed in a batch process in Data Services. The official documentation states how the workflow will look like: what is the job of the data steward/data reviewers, when the Data Services job need to run and so on.

Before starting Some things to consider beforehand: If you already have an ETL job using the match transform you will need tp adapt the ETL process obviously: it is supposed that the match transform will run in the staging area. IS (Data Steward or IS Administrator): setup match review configuration You need to configure the match configuration in IS. Match review thresholds: the Data Services match transform calculates a match score. Data Services (ETL developer): adapt ETL process The ETL process in DS need to be adapted. Data Services: Loading flat files into Sybase IQ. We had a POC where it was required to load large flat files into a Sybase IQ data warehouse. We used Data Services 4.0 (DS) to load the files into the staging area of the data warehouse. Loading files into a database table is an easy job for an ETL tool.

In DS, all you need to do is create a file format and import the staging table from IQ. Then connect the file format with the staging table in a dataflow, for instance: Please note that this is a typical scenario if you are loading large files into an analytic or columnar database such as SAP Sybase IQ or SAP Hana. So far so good, but there two things to keep in mind when loading flat files directly into a Sybase IQ table.

Available loading mechanisms: Singe-record insert statements: this is the default option in Data Services. JS and DB on same machine: the file can reside local on the Sybase IQ server or remote. Bulk loading from Data Services into IQ: First, Data Services loads the file into its memory. Data Services: SCD 2 with bulk loading in S... In a POC last year I implemented a Slowly Changing Dimension (type 2, SCD 2) load into a Sybase IQ data warehouse (see SCD for more information on slowly changing dimensions). I needed to implement a special workaround due to the fact that Data Services cannot use bulk loads in such a scenario because in SCD 2 the previous versions of changed dimension records need to be updated (the columns IsValid and ValidTo need to be updated.)

Bulk loading is a MUST in IQ if you are loading large amounts of data (let’s say everything above 100.000 records). If you are not using the bulk load option for target tables Data Services will send a single INSERT SQL statement for each record to IQ. Columnar databases like IQ are not designed for such kind of transactional processing and performance will decrease dramatically (I actually had the impression that the system hangs when I implemented the first version of my load without the bulk load option). Typical dataflow for SCD 2 loads set IsValid = 0,
