Application Services

Application Services

Big Data Management uses application services in the Informatica domain to process data. The application services depend on the task you perform.
Big Data Management uses the following application services:
Analyst Service
The Analyst Service runs the Analyst tool in the Informatica domain. The Analyst Service manages the connections between service components and the users that have access to the Analyst tool.
Data Integration Service
The Data Integration Service can process mappings in the native environment or push the mapping for processing to the Hadoop cluster in the Hadoop environment. The Data Integration Service also retrieves metadata from the Model repository when you run a Developer tool mapping or workflow. The Analyst tool and Developer tool connect to the Data Integration Service to run profile jobs and store profile results in the profiling warehouse.
Metadata Manager Service
The Metadata Manager Service manages the Metadata Manager repository. The Metadata Manager Service connects to the Metadata Manager repository when you perform data lineage analysis.
You specify a Metadata Manager Service when you configure the Data Integration Service.
Model Repository Service
The Model Repository Service manages the Model repository. The Model Repository Service connects to the Model repository when you run a mapping, mapping specification, profile, or workflow.
You specify a Model Repository Service when you configure the Data Integration Service.
