Identity Resolution: Administration (IRADMIN)

This two day class covers the administration of Informatica Identity Resolution systems. Administration consists of maintenance, use, and operation. Topics include IIR installation, product overview, configuration, System creation, operations, and basic tuning. IIR installation will be done on a MS Windows platform, though the product supports UNIX platforms. IIR configuration and creation consist of creating, editing, and testing IIR systems. The course includes seven labs where the participant installs the product, works with the Workbench, loads System Definition files that create indexes from flat file and relational database data, there is a workshop, and batch match file generation, and lastly basic tuning options.
