Introduction to Data Capture

The field of data capture – the process of collecting data from multiple sources to be processed and used for a variety of purposes – has entered a new era. From the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data to real-time streaming data sources, data capture solutions are delivering more data from more sources to enterprises in every industry. While advances in data capture technology is driving innovation and creating business opportunity, IT teams are struggling to efficiently ingest, manage and consolidate data and deliver it in a timely way to analytics and real-time BI platforms.

The challenge: traditional ETL software solutions that disrupt production sources and burden IT teams with complex manual coding. As data architects and database administrators work to move, store, process and analyze data, a traditional data transformation tool like ETL can’t efficiently process high volumes of fast moving data from many sources.

New solutions are required to help enterprises take advantage of the vast amounts of information provided by advances in data capture – and Change Data capture (CDC) technology is the answer.

Managing Ingestion From Data Capture Sources With Qlik Replicate®

Qlik Replicate is a universal data ingestion and data replication software solution that can help enterprises manage data streaming into the organization from hundreds or thousands of data capture sources. As a foundation for modern and efficient data pipelines, Qlik Replicate provides automated, real-time integration for a wide variety of sources and targets. Qlik Replicate works with information from data capture sources stored both in the cloud and on premise, enabling IT teams to deliver more analytics-ready data to the business while reducing effort and cost.

Qlik Replicate uses advanced Change Data Capture (CDC) technology to move data at high speed from source to target while minimizing disruption to production workloads by eliminating the bottlenecks of batch replication and batch windows. Replicate also reduces the cost of transferring data over the Wide Area Network (WAN) by sending only incremental changes. By using Change Data Capture (CDC) technology to meet business requirements for efficiency, scalability, low impact and real-time updates, Qlik Replicate simplifies data ingestion and replication and accelerates time to analytics.
