Mainframe Integration with Big Data

Offload queries from the mainframe and enable analytics on your big data

  • Challenge

    Many of the world’s largest companies continue to run mission critical applications on mainframe systems. But analyzing this data by directly querying the mainframe can be complex and costly, with billing based on MIPS (millions of instructions per second.) To meet evolving business needs, enterprises are searching for new ways to integrate mainframe data into big data analytics platforms that include data warehouses and Hadoop.
  • Solution

    Qlik Replicate™ (formerly Attunity Replicate)is an innovative software solution that accelerates mainframe data analytics with low-latency and low-impact data integration with data warehouses, Hadoop data lakes or Apache Kafka. This software solution enables continuous replication from different mainframe data sources without the need for any custom development.
