What is Ab Initio?

Ab Initio is a general purpose data processing platform for enterprise-class, mission-critical applications such as data warehousing, clickstream processing, data movement, data transformation, and analytics.

Supports arbitrary of data sources and programs, and provide complete metadata management across the enterprise

Provide best ETL data management and analysis.

Ab-Intio Environment
 The advantage of Ab-Initio code is that it can run in both the serial and multi-file system environment.
Serial Environment:
The normal UNIX file system.
Muti-File System:
Multi-File System (mfs) is meant for parallelism. In an mfs a particular file physically stored across different partition of the machine or even different machine but pointed by a logical file, which is stored in the co-operating system. The logical file is the control file which holds the pointer to the physical locations.
About Ab-Initio Graphs:
An Ab-Initio graph comprises number of components to serve different purpose. Data is read or write by a component according to the dml ( do not confuse with the database “data manipulating language” The most commonly used components are described in the following sections.

Ab initio components

Components of Ab initio are:
1.     Dataset components
2.     Departition
3.     Partition
4.     Sort
5.     Transform
6.     Miscellaneous
7.     Validate
Dataset Components:
Dataset components represent data records or act upon data records as follows:
  • INPUT FILE represents data records read as input to a graph from one or more serial files or from a multifile
  • INPUT TABLE unloads data records from a database into an Ab Initio graph, allowing you to specify as the source either a database table, or an SQL statement that selects data records from one or more tables.
  • INTERMEDIATE FILE represents one or more serial files or a multifile of intermediate results that a graph writes during execution, and saves for your review after execution.
  • LOOK UP: represents one or more serial files or a multifile of data records small enough to be held in main memory, letting a transform function retrieve records much more quickly than it could retrieve them if they were stored on disk.
  • OUTPUT FILE represents data records written as output from a graph into one or multiple serial files or a multifile.
  • OUTPUT TABLE loads data records from a graph into a database, letting you specify the records’ destination either directly as a single database table, or through an SQL statement that inserts data records into one or more tables.
  • READ MULTIPLE FILES sequentially reads from a list of input files.
  • WRITE MULTIPLE FILES writes records to a set of output files.

Very nice material and course video available for your reference anytime. I repeatedly watched videos to learn required knowledge. Anyone would definitely miss out the physical presence inside the class while attending the course . I had lot of disturbance at home while class was going on and it didn't give me any seriousness about subject as I didn't see anyone looking at me if I am listening! This factor, someone is looking at me would definitely make me concentrate subject. Also 4 (four) hours of coaching online and very less interaction with people around makes very less impressive learning

My Favourite Training Instittue

My learning with KITS Online Trainings was Golden Gate and SAP Basis training and exam preparation It’s been a worthwhile learning experience - the course was easier to understand than and helped memory retention. Also the online support team were so kind and helpful-when i ran out of time and my exam was a month away they extended my access for extra 30 days. Success all the way
