Enterprise Data Preparation Service Overview

Enterprise Data Preparation Service

Enterprise Data Preparation
requires the
Enterprise Data Preparation Service
to complete operations. The
Enterprise Data Preparation Service
is an application service that runs the
Enterprise Data Preparation
application in the Informatica domain.
Enterprise Data Preparation
application allows data analysts to create data preparation projects. Each step of the data preparation project is stored in a recipe that is translated into a mapping for execution on the Informatica platform.
When an analyst uploads data, the
Enterprise Data Preparation Service
connects to the HDFS system in the Hadoop cluster to temporarily stage the data. When an analyst previews data, the
Enterprise Data Preparation Service
connects to the Hadoop cluster to read from the Hive table.
You can create the
Enterprise Data Preparation Service
when you install
Enterprise Data Preparation
, or you can use the Administrator tool to create the service after installation.
