Strategic Alliance Offers Customers Accelerated Methods of Extracting

Key Enterprise Data

London, UK – 7 June 2002 – Lakeview Technology Inc., the industry leader in the development and distribution of multiplatform data replication, managed availability, and clustering solutions and iWay Software, an Information Builders company and market leader in middleware that accelerates business integration, have announced a strategic partnership to drastically improve extract, transform, and load (ETL) data movement.

OmniReplicator’s changed data capture (CDC) engine and iWay Software’s ETL Manager will help customers minimise the time needed to extract data from very large databases and legacy systems. This strategic alliance decreases extract data time, reduces network traffic, and has less impact on the ever-shrinking batch window. By reducing the time it takes to run ETL jobs, IT departments buy back CPU cycles, network bandwidth, and batch window time, thus improving project ROI. In addition, extracted information can be integrated with transformation engines, message boards, and other integration technologies. The partnership spans all industries and is ideal for customers requiring enterprise data manipulation.

“We are very enthusiastic about our alliance with iWay because it expands and extends our customers’ abilities to optimise their business operations,” said Eric Robinson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for OmniReplicator. “Converging our change-based data replication with iWay’s leading ETL Manager solution provides our customers with the ability to vastly improve performance when extracting data from their legacy systems.”

OmniReplicator provides data replication and synchronisation solutions for eBusiness, data warehousing, customer relationship management (CRM), and business intelligence. With OmniReplicator, organisations can efficiently and accurately share data among homogeneous and heterogeneous environments, as well as move information seamlessly across all of the most popular relational databases, including Oracle, Sybase, SQL Server, and DB2.

“Lakeview’s OmniReplictor is a great choice for iWay Software because it delivers a cost-effective and efficient change data capture solution that covers all major relational databases,” said Jim Irving, Information Builders’ UK Managing Director. “Our combined solution is flexible and highly efficient – whether the target is a formal data warehouse, a data mart, or an operational data store. Feeding only the data that has changed to the target tables significantly reduces information lag time to the user community. Near real-time extract, transform, and load delivers on a concept known as the active data warehouse. When the warehouse is active, the information is more timely – and that means improved decision-making, negotiating, problem solving, and opportunity discovery.”
