Informatica targets AS/400 market

Computer Today staff
With up to 70% of data still sitting on legacy systems, analytics provider, Informatica, has released two new products aimed at the mainframe and AS/400 markets.

It claims PowerConnect will offer ready access to legacy data and a complete view of the enterprise, without the need to develop what it calls high-maintenance Cobol data integration programs.

The product is said to enable access to source data and metadata from most mainframe sources including DB2, IMS, VSAM, ADABAS and sequential flat files.

The new products use technology licensed from Striva Corporation which has integrated its products into Informatica's data integration platform as part of an alliance between the two companies.

Paul Bach, president of Striva, says: "It will allow customers to integrate and analyse mission-critical legacy data in minutes versus the days or weeks it would typically take to gain access to data using traditional methods."
