Intelligent Structure Discovery Process

Intelligent Structure Discovery

You can create a CLAIRE®
intelligent structure model
Intelligent Structure Discovery
Intelligent Structure Discovery
is a service in Cloud
Data Integration
When you provide a sample file,
Intelligent Structure Discovery
determines the underlying structure of the information and creates a model of the structure. After you create an
intelligent structure model
you can view, edit, and refine it. For example, you can choose to exclude or combine structure elements. You can normalize repeating groups.
You can create models from the following input types:
  • Delimited files, for example, CSV files
  • Machine generated files such as weblogs and clickstreams
  • JSON files
  • XML files
  • ORC files
  • Avro files
  • Parquet files
  • Microsoft Excel files
  • Data within PDF form fields
  • Data within Microsoft Word tables
When you finish refining the model, you can export it and then associate it with a data object that represents a complex file source in a data engineering mapping.
Alternatively, when you create the data object, you can select an XML, JSON, ORC, Avro, or Parquet sample file. Intelligent Structure Discovery creates an
intelligent structure model
based on the sample file that you select.
You cannot edit or refine a model that
Intelligent Structure Discovery
creates automatically. To edit and refine a model, create, edit, and export it in Cloud
Data Integration
The following image shows the process by which
Intelligent Structure Discovery
deciphers the underlying patterns of data and creates a model of the data patterns:
This image shows unstuctured or structured data being deciphered by Intelligent Structure Discovery, which creates a model of the data.
