In Informatica Developer, you can run single object profiles, multiple object profiles, and enterprise discovery profiles in the native environment. In Informatica Analyst, you can run column profiles, enterprise discovery profiles, and scorecards in the native environment.
When you run a profile in the native run-time environment, the Analyst tool or Developer tool submits the profile jobs to the Profiling Service Module. The Profiling Service Module then breaks down the profile jobs into a set of mappings. The Data Integration Service runs these mappings on the same machine where the Data Integration Service runs and writes the profile results to the profiling warehouse. By default, all profiles run in the native run-time environment.
You can use native sources to create and run profiles in the native environment. A native data source is a non-Hadoop source, such as a flat file, relational source, or mainframe source. You can also run a profile on a mapping specification or a logical data source with a Hive or HDFS data source in the native environment.
