Using IBM iSeries and Mainframe data for DW, BI, & MDM – The Efficient and Certified Solution
Over the last few years we’ve observed two clear and present trends: data volumes are growing rapidly and data latencies are quickly shrinking as users expect fresh and accurate data to be available in near real-time, where and when needed. The rapid growth in demand for real-time data warehousing is a great example and organizations of various sizes are scrambling to find the right tools to enable them to put such solutions in place.
As these trends continue to evolve, many companies are realizing that their traditional bulk processing approach cannot scale to meet the demand. The only real alternative is to change the processing paradigm and work only with the data that actually changed, which in many cases is a fraction of the source data (e.g. 5%). This paradigm is based on change data capture (CDC), a technology that reduces costs and enables improvement of data timeliness, quality, and consistency.
While this all makes sense, finding a trusted and affordable solution is not an easy task for the thousands of organizations worldwide that rely on IBM iSeries and Mainframe systems to run their business. Such a solution is now available with the combination of products by SAP BusinessObjects and Attunity, a leading provider of real-time data integration software.
Attunity provides an SAP-Certified solution based on BusinessObjects Data Services and Attunity Stream, a log-based change-data-capture (CDC) product that enables processing of only incremental changes, with minimal impact on the source iSeries or Mainframe data systems. Leveraging seamless and certified integration, SAP users have a simple and proven solution that can be quickly configured and deployed, resulting in fast ROI.
Using the combination of SAP BusinessObjects and Attunity products, organizations can enable real-time initiatives including data warehousing, business intelligence, master data management (MDM) and data migrations.
