Irish Life & Permanent Group (IL&P) has deployed Attachmate Databridge to help the company cut the workload of its existing Unisys platforms for Permanent TSB, its retail banking business.
The pension and investment company has used the mainframe migration technology to extract and move data from the Unisys hosts system toimprove decision support and real-time data analysis.
Irish Life & Permanent Group said that since integrating Attachmate Databridge it has been been able to reduce mainframe resource requirements and usage, offload various MIS reporting functions from the mainframe environment, and manage its security initiatives, using relational databases including Oracle and SQL.
Paul Coakley, team leader of Unisys operations and technical support for Irish Life & Permanent, said, "Having a cost-effective way to clone [Unisys data] was critical to us, and Databridge Enterprise Server made the process much more efficient by cutting replication time from days to a matter of hours. We expect savings of between 150K euros and 200k euros over the life of the Unisys metered license contract."
The Attachmate Databridge product has helped Irish Life & Permanent Group to replicate data, and clone key banking systems.
