Tape Cracker’s pattern recognition is going one step further. Tape Cracker can now intelligently apply data transformation actions (field matching, format actions, and calculations) from a previously cracked loan tape to a newly uploaded tape file.
You can now create multiple strat cards using the same field.
You can now bulk apply calculations more efficiently by selecting one or more customized calculation sets.
You can now isolate the loans you’re most interested in analyzing from the original loan tape.
The Reports page is designed to help you organize and visualize data better; beyond strats, you can create summary and pivot tables, rep lines, and, eventually, charts. That's why we're excited to announce two new features: exporting Tape Cracker reports through a secure, shareable link and generating summary tables across the web app.
For security and quality control purposes, you can now download an audit trail for detailed information on the actions performed on the loan tapes, when, and by whom.
Tape Cracker and Data Direct are now bundled together. Users can now access cleansed loan data through superQuery, a web IDE, for supercharged analysis.
Tape Cracker now supports all asset classes, offering enhanced pre-bid diligence to your entire firm.
Append critical data points—updated property value, updated property value date, and updated LTV—to individual loans through our partnership with HouseCanary, a nationwide brokerage and leading provider of residential real estate analytics and home valuation tools.
Users can now have more control managing calculations by editing and permanently archiving. This action can be done within the calculation library or when bulk applying.
Users can now perform data quality checks and evaluate credit worthiness through automated data validation rules.
Tape Cracker users can now create tags and assign up to five tags to their calculations to make it easier to find.
You can now transform your data in a more accessible format through summary tables. Quickly select existing data fields or calculate counts and basic statistics on the fly. Even more, you can export your summary tables for reporting purposes or for easy collaboration with colleagues.
You can now apply filters to field values to quickly pinpoint and fix missing or invalid data.
While dv01 aims to standardize fields across the industry, you may want to store certain data under your unique business nomenclature. You can now create your own values for these fields in Tape Cracker, instead of mapping values to the dv01 schema. Data health bar will now show a non-standardized status, presenting the number of customized fields.
While dv01 empowers users to convert data into actionable insights, the meanings of standardized fields may be a mystery to some, resulting in incorrect assumptions. To provide clarity and ensure accurate analyses, users can now access the dv01 Data Dictionary within Tape Cracker.
We have streamlined the Tape Cracker workflow, combining two separate steps into one. You can now apply multiple calculations and formatting actions to resolve invalid data within the same step.
We have made it easier to learn the dv01 syntax for calculating values on your loan tapes. A syntax tooltip now appears as you type a calculation, and the complete dv01 syntax manual is now available within the web app.
