Overview

Boeing's Twister Data Framework® is a suite of software applications allowing organizations to more effectively manage and access data. It includes Twister Data Integrator and Twister Data Server. Twister Data Integrator is a Business Intelligence-enabling application, focused at optimizing the ETL process (Extract, Transform, Load). It is currently being used within the Department of Defense (DoD), the Intelligence Community (IC), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to rapidly and automatically ingest, normalize, tag, format, and correlate heterogeneous data sources and associated metadata. Twister Data Server enables information sharing by making data accessible via federated queries across data sets and networks regardless of location, structure, or complexity. Access to different data sets is mediated and all credentials are managed byTwister Data Server. The query results are collected from each source and combined into either a single result set or multiple results sets.

All applications in Twister Data Framework® operate in a parallel environment, thus are scalable to meet the demands of large data sets and user loads.
