Mainframe access and integration

Mainframe application data enhances all types of strategic projects – from advanced analytics to machine learning and everything in between. With all that value, this data can’t be left out of your broader data integration strategy.

That said, it can be difficult or impossible for some businesses to access, integrate, or migrate mainframe data.

For most organizations, mainframe data integration success depends on specialized skills that understand legacy data. But these skills are in short supply, and that’s where data integration solutions are key to bringing mainframe data into an intuitive interface that runs on any computing environment. That way, you’re set up for success with your existing resources.

With high-performance solutions built on Precisely Connect, you directly access, understand, and transform complex mainframe data. Connect ensures that mainframe data reaches your platform of choice for advanced analytics, fraud detection, machine learning, and more.

Real-time data replication with CDC

Living in a world of delayed data means making business decisions with old information. You need data replication solutions that capture and reflect data changes to your analytics and reporting layer as they happen. Connect is a highly versatile solution that helps you build data pipelines that share changes to application data as it occurs.

Connect’s real-time replication ensures that databases are in-sync for reporting, analytics, and data warehousing. You can replicate changes as they happen across hierarchical data stores (IMS, VSAM), relational databases, streaming frameworks, and the cloud. Support a variety of architectures and topologies. Connect’s resilient data delivery guarantees that you never experience interruptions in your data flow.

With Connect, worry about your business and not your systems. Get the changes you need in real-time without overloading networks or affecting performance.

Optimize environments, and maximize performance

You need data integration solutions that help accommodate growing volumes of data, users, and unpredictable peak usage demands. For that, you need predictable performance and scalability. Connect offers both.

Connect is the only solution with a self-tuning engine that dynamically selects the most efficient algorithms based on data structures and systems attributes at run-time. Know that you’re getting the best performance possible, regardless of if a job is on-premises or in the cloud. For ETL processes, Connect users have experienced 10X faster performance and saved hundreds of hours of development.

Connect delivers unrivaled scalability and efficiency for data replication.  Connect minimizes network impact by detecting changes via database and system logs and replicating them downstream. Connect does this all without affecting the applications that still run on those systems.
