IBM InfoSphere Change Data Capture

IBM® InfoSphere™ Change Data Capture integrates information across heterogeneous data stores in real time.

Leverage real-time data replication to support data migrations, application consolidation, data synchronization, dynamic warehousing, MDM, SOA, business analytics and ETL or data quality processes.

  • Log-based Change Data Capture (CDC) technology, acquired in the DataMirror acquisition, replicates mission-critical data events in real time without impacting system performance
  • Low latency, high throughput data replication supports enterprise data volumes while maintaining transactional integrity and consistency.
  • Integration with IBM InfoSphere DataStage provides real-time data feeds to ETL processes with transactional integrity and no staging required, and enables real-time validity checks of changed data against defined data rules—and data cleansing if necessary—during the transformation process.
  • Metadata for the sources of InfoSphere Change Data Capture is integrated into InfoSphere Metadata Workbench, enabling functions like impact analysis and data lineage to extend from the initial log-based replication task throughout the rest of the information management infrastructure when change data capture is implemented within the broader context of IBM InfoSphere Information Server.
  • Real-time data transactions are packaged into XML documents and delivering to and from messaging middleware such as WebSphere MQ, supporting service-oriented architectures.
  • An easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) enables quick deployment of data integration processes.
  • Comprehensive monitoring capabilities provide increased visibility into the replication environment to accelerate troubleshooting.
  • Flexible implementation enables unidirectional, bi-directional, many-to-one, and one-to-many delivery of data across the enterprise.
  • Together, InfoSphere Change Data Capture and InfoSphere Change Data Capture for z/OS, replicate heterogeneous data to and from DB2 for z/OS.
  • Together with InfoSphere Replication Server, IBM change data capture offerings provide the largest breadth of database and operating system support for data replication across both distributed and System Z environments.
  • InfoSphere Change Data Delivery rapidly delivers data changes for master data management, event-driven data quality, dynamic data warehousing, and ETL process optimization.
  • Operating systems supported: AIX, HP-UX, i family, Linux, Other Operating Systems, Solaris (Sun Microsystems), Windows, z/OS
  • Databases supported: DB2 pureScale 9.8, DB2 for Linux Unix Windows, z/OS, and i, Informix, Oracle databases, Sybase databases, Microsoft SQL Server, IMS and Teradata
IBM InfoSphere Classic Federation Server

IBM® InfoSphere™ Classic Federation Server for z/OS® offers direct virtualized SQL access to mainframe data sources.

It supports Windows® and UNIX® tools and applications and provides federated read and write access to data stored in a wide variety of databases.

  • Can access data stored in VSAM, IMS, CA-IDMS, CA-Datacom, Software AG Adabas, and DB2® UDB for z/OS® databases by dynamically translating JDBC and ODBC SQL statements into native read/write APIs.
  • It is driven by metadata that contains a mapping of physical databases and files to logical relational tables, mainframe data appears to be one relational database and supports SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE SQL statements and stored procedure calls.
  • Delivers enterprise-wide structured and unstructured data integration when combined with InfoSphere Federation Server.
  • InfoSphere Classic Federation Server for z/OS includes improved DB2 data access performance, 64-bit client platforms, enhanced automation of support for redefined data, as well as improved flexibility in handling IMS PCB selection.
  • Helps automate the creation of metadata for more users and extend visual metadata management to more complex scenarios - this improves the usability of the tool while also enabling more rapid metadata creation and management.
  • Simplifies the management of the operational platform and performance optimization processes by providing an interactive view of the actual settings as well as a means for temporarily and permanently changing configuration settings.
  • Dynamic integration of z/OS sequential file data for ETL processing with no need to unload or FTP files to the ETL (InfoSphere DataStage) platform.
