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.
At a Glance
Break down barriers with ETL
Databridge is an out-of-the-box solution that makes business information readily accessible for analysis and processing. It's an Extract, Transform, Load solution that mirrors DMSII and non-DMSII data in a secondary working database, while keeping it updated in real time.
Get more done
Combine data from disparate sources. Integrate it into modern business-intelligence systems. Perform trend analysis. Evaluate key performance indicators. Spend less time working out DMSII kinks, so IT and business managers can both be more productive.
"Databridge was a strategic investment that is enabling us to meet our long term objectives of improving efficiency and decreasing costs—by reducing our resource requirements and minimising usage costs on the Unisys platform."
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
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.
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 Replicate real-time data on your cloned database and eliminate the unpleasant surprises that result from outdated info.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.
Insist on Change
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.
