Make Them Cooperate

Enable BI tools to access DMSII data

When corporate decision makers need business data, they expect ready-to-use, up-to-date results. That expectation poses an IT challenge in Unisys environments where DMSII databases are non-relational, while business intelligence (BI) tools support databases that are exclusively relational. Databridge inspires cooperation between BI and DMSII in your data-driven environment.

Beware the coding trap

Baby-Boomer programmers are heading for the door, and they're taking their mainframe coding skills with them. So if your data access approach requires coding expertise, you may be walking a lonely road. Luckily, Databridge modernizes processes and eliminates coding needs.

5 capabilities you need for DMSII data integration


Features


Conserve host resources

Redirect DMSII queries to a secondary database and free up your mainframe for more important work. Give business users real-time access to host data, without breaking your IT budget.


The non-relational DMSII database is replicated on a relational Windows, UNIX, or AIX database.

Eliminate uncertainty

Was a sound decision ever based on old information? Don't sacrifice accuracy for economy. Replicate real-time data on your cloned database and eliminate the unpleasant surprises that result from outdated info.


"Our Unisys vendor told us—in no uncertain terms—to go with Databridge. . . . Attachmate provided us with extremely good customer service. We turned everything around in two weeks—it was just unbelievable."

Deliver it in a flexible format

End users don't want to rekey, reload, or reformat. They just want data for quick viewing and immediate use. So don't tell them they can't get it from DMSII. Deliver it on demand, in the format they need—the same way they get their other business information.


The Databridge client configuration tool gives you cloning-option control via an easy-to-use interface.

Insist on Change
Data Capture

Say goodbye to batch processing. Databridge uses CDC patterns to synchronize data. It reads the audit file and reflects changes instantly, in the secondary database. In fact, it's the only solution that replicates changed data in a Unisys MCP DMSII environment.

Fast, well-informed business decisions require access to your organization’s key performance indicators residing on critical database systems. But the prospect of exposing those systems inevitably raises concerns around security, data integrity, cost, and performance. For organizations using the Unisys ClearPath MCP server and its non-relational DMSII database, there’s an additional challenge: Most business intelligence tools support only relational databases.
