for CA-IDMS Data Distribution
ASG-Replication Suite makes virtually any relational database a “home away from home” for mainframe CA-IDMS data. It permits IDMS data to be synchronously replicated from a legacy database and distributed to virtually any combination of relational databases, regardless of the platform or location.
The ASG-Replication Suite maps a CA-IDMS database to a relational set of tables using a windows GUI tool, defines the relational tables, and then extracts the data from IDMS and loads it in to a relational target database, either on z/OS or off-platform to any SQL database (i.e. DB2, Oracle, Sybase, MySQL, IDMS-R, etc.). The target database can then be maintained (kept up to date with the source IDMS database) by reloading or using IDMS journal-based change only replication with a frequency from 15 minutes to daily or weekly. There is also a real-time option which allows for sub-second source to target latency. The ASG-Replication Suite enables data to be distributed selectively from IDMS for use by Web-enabled, client/server, desktop, mobile, or mainframe applications via a comprehensive set of tools. It is the premier single-vendor solution for fast, automated, reliable data replication.
