Features

  1. Large Data Repository for Central Administration

    Store data from multiple tools and projects into a single place – the central repository.

    Storing all information in a large data repository enables organizations to utilize the data more efficiently while overcoming major challenges like inconsistent security policies, storage silos, and additional costs like running translation layers.

  2. Tool Extractors with WS/SQL Communication Support

    Kovair Data Lake tool extractors are available in two types – Extractors and Omnibus Extractors.

    • Extractors are tool specific windows services used for extracting data from tool to Data Lake based on configuration. You can set up a Windows Service or an SQL based authentication that will enable the extractor to make data from a particular database visible.

    • Omnibus Extractors are Kovair platform specific Windows services applicable for data extraction from Kovair ALM and Omnibus to Data Lake, based on the type of configuration that you choose.

    Both Extractors and Omnibus Extractors are single extractors that can connect a Data Lake instance with multiple instances and projects belonging to the same tool. These are license based and come with annual-based subscriptions. In case of both, extractor licenses can be applied from Data Lake Portal only.

  3. Web-based Data Lake Portal

    View data snapshots, manage Data Lake users and keep track of license expiry dates and usage with Kovair Data Lake Web Portal.

Kovair Data Lake is a single large database repository that can consist of data from multiple ALM tool instances and corresponding projects. There are no restrictions on the number of tools and projects that can be connected to a Data Lake instance. You can also connect multiple copies of the same tool extractors to a single Data Lake instance.

Kovair extractors are not just used to extract information from tools that are connected to it. Kovair Data Lake extractors are also available for extracting information from tools that are connected to Omnibus platform.

Real Time Graphical Interpretation of Data

Kovair Data Lake Portal offers dashboards for displaying data volume for each connected tool. Users can view the summary of the total volume of data extracted from a particular tool, volume of data last fetched, number of extractors that are connected to a specific Data Lake instance, and the percentage growth of data since last polling. The data here is displayed in terms of both mapped and unmapped data.

You can also monitor the connective pipeline of the number of extractors that connect ALM tools to a Data Lake instance.
