In the digital age big data and Analytics are widely being talked about. The efficient integration of mainframe data has multiple reasons: bigdata, workload relief of the mainframe to reduce costs, application modernisation, and mainframe to cloud, together with data and application migration without a “Big Bang”.
Declining mainframe know how, databases and their complexities grown over decades – these are big challenges when it comes to data exchange in a mainframe environment.
Many corporations used FTP or other file transfer solutions to resolve the data exchange problem. This is extremely CPU intensive, insecure and creates high costs for the distribution of mass data.
Nowadays these solutions are neither acceptable nor practicable anymore. Not only because of the costs, but also because of limited batch windows.
There is a better solution to manage and master this complex and ambitious task in an easy, fast, reliable and efficient way: tcVISION for the timely, bidirectional data synchronisation and replication based on changed data. tcVISION turns the data exchange into a single-step operation. No middle-ware or message queueing is required. The data is exchanged in raw format, compressed and reduced to the processing of changed data.
