ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 1 -- Business Objects Software, Dublin, Ireland, has been assigned a patent (8,543,539) developed by Madhu Ahluwalia, Baltimore, and Alexei Potiagalov, Richmond, Canada, for a "method and system for capturing change of data."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Disclosed are systems and methods for synchronizing data present in a target data set with data present in a source data set. The data present in the target data set is partitioned to determine a partition definition of the target data set. A target message digest is calculated for the data present in each partition of the target data set. Based upon the partition definition of the target data set, the data present in the source data set is partitioned. A source message digest is calculated for the data present in each partition of the source data set. The source message digest of a partition is compared with the target message digest of a corresponding partition to capture a change in data present in the source data set. Based upon the captured data, the data in the target data set is synchronized with the data in the source data set."
The patent application was filed on Sept. 16, 2009 (12/560,422). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,543,539.PN.&OS=PN/8,543,539&RS=PN/8,543,539
