All-in-one ETL solution from Attachmate integrates
critical information for business intelligence (BI) analysis

DATABridge v5.0 extracts and transforms MCP host data for improved decision support and data warehousing—in real time

Attachmate Corporation, 20-year veterans of connecting users with critical enterprise data and longtime strategic partner of Unisys® Corporation [NYSE: UIS], today announced the release of DATABridge® v5.0. Attachmate DATABridge provides businesses with a comprehensive ETL (extract, transform, load) solution for securely integrating Unisys MCP DMSII and non-DMSII data to a secondary system. DATABridge replicates data in seconds – extraction and replication are direct and in real-time – without the lag times of other products on the market. No additional files are created, so there is no increase in back-end overhead.

With DATABridge, production data can be integrated with a relational database, such as Oracle®, Microsoft® SQL Server, or other DMSII database located on a different Unisys host. Unlike other solutions that support ETL technology via separate modules, DATABridge is an all-in-one solution. It allows extraction, transformation, and loading to take place simultaneously, without the need for additional utilities. DATABridge makes information easily accessible for the purpose of processing and analyzing for business intelligence (BI) – while also conserving host resources.

“Very few replication products can work as well in high-use environments. Customers get the speed they need, with minimal use of host resources, so it is very cost-effective,” said developer Joe Joseph, president of Joe Joseph & Associates Inc., which specializes in Data Management and Co-operative Distributed processing. “Once customers install and use DATABridge, they discover all of the things they can do -- how cost-effective DATABridge is on the resource side, how easy it is to install, and how fast it replicates data,” Joseph continued. “In high-volume environments, no other tool can take on this level of tasks and perform as well.”

Empowers database administrators for better analysis

DATABridge provides granular filtering, both at the data source and the data target, which gives administrators complete control over what is being extracted. “DATABridge empowers decision makers with the tools and information they require to improve business agility,” said Markus Nitschke, vice president, corporate marketing, for Attachmate. “Database administrators can determine where information is sent and in what formats, so they can control data more securely while delivering data the way users want.”

DATABridge Enterprise Server conserves resources while increasing efficiency

New in this release is DATABridge Enterprise Server (DBE), which conserves mainframe resources by offloading current host processing to a Windows® Server. “With the implementation of DATABridge Enterprise Server, data cloning and update speeds are significantly faster, which is important in high-use environments,” said Nitschke. DATABridge Enterprise Server resides between DATABridge Host and clients, performing all host-related processing before sending data onto client systems. DBE also provides a graphical interface for viewing various sources and database layouts. More information on the new release is at
