Syncsort and CA Technologies Form a Partnership


Syncsort, the global leader in Big Iron to Big Data solutions, and CA Technologies have formed a partnership to enable organizations to use Syncsort’s DMX-h Big Data Integration software to access data from CA Datacom and CA IDMS for advanced analytics. Organizations can now leverage CA Datacom® and CA IDMS™ Data to discover business insights via Simplified Big Data Integration Strategies. CA Datacom and CA IDMS are high-performance mainframe database management systems used by hundreds of large, global enterprises along with government agencies. These enterprises and agencies utilize the managment systems for their reliability and fast processing speeds in handling large amounts of business-critical data. Syncsort DMX-h helps unlock the value of the data by making it accessible for analytics with next-generation analytical tools.

David Hodgson, Chief Product Officer of Syncsort notes: “Organizations are moving forward with data lake initiatives and are looking to centralize all enterprise data to take advantage of state-of-the-art analytics developed for Hadoop and Spark environments.” The new integration between Syncsort DMX-h and CA Datacom and CA IDMS, bridges what’s known as the “big iron to big data gap,” enabling enterprises to tap into valuable mainframe data and make it accessible to emerging next-generation platforms.


As Vikas Sinha, Senior Vice President, Mainframe, of CA Technologies notes: “Many large, global organizations depend onCA Datacom and CA IDMS to store and manage their mission-critical applications and data.” The challenge is maximizing the value of that data and remaining competitive with business insights by exposing it to state-of-art analytical tools. Syncsort’s Big Data integration software provides a way to do just that, as Sinha said. In addition, with the Portfolio Simplification program announced earlier this year by CA Technologies, all licensed CA Datacom and CA IDMS users have access to the tools necessary to connect with Syncsort DMX-h at no extra charge.
