Syncsort’s New Change Data Capture Capabilities Extend Leadership in Mainframe Access, Integration

Syncsort, a global leader in data liberation, integrity and integration solutions for next-generation analytics, today announced new capabilities in its unrivaled mainframe data access and integration solution that continuously, quickly and efficiently populates Hadoop data lakes with changes in mainframe data.

The new DMX Change Data Capture (DMX CDC) functionality delivers real-time data replication that enables organizations to continually keep Hadoop data in sync with changes made on the mainframe, and consistently make the most current Big Data information available in the Hadoop data lake for analytics.

“Many organizations are using our industry-leading big data integration solution, DMX-h, to quickly and efficiently populate their data lakes with enterprise-wide data, including complex data from the mainframe for a variety of use cases, such as Hadoop as a Service, Data as a Service, data archive in the Cloud, fraud detection, anti-money laundering and Customer 360,” said Tendü Yoğurtçu, Chief Technology Officer, Syncsort. “After populating the data lake, it is very important to keep that data fresh to power real-time analytics and accurate decisions based on up-to-date information. Our new CDC offering provides our customers with an easy-to-use, highly efficient solution for ensuring the data lake is refreshed in real-time with the incremental updates, while meeting SLAs and conserving network resources.”

Syncsort already is in many large production deployments for accessing data from traditional enterprise systems and integrating it with Hadoop, including DataFunnel, its single-click solution for populating the data lake data from thousands of tables and automatically creating the corresponding metadata in Hadoop.

The new CDC capabilities extend this with real-time data replication, reducing the network load and providing up-to-the-minute mainframe data for analytics by:

The combination of all the time savings and low resource utilization with the new CDC facilities also helps organizations meet short SLAs with virtually no impact to MIPS costs.
