Veristorm brings new and less costly Big Data solutions to System z. Organizations can reap the immediate savings of offloading batch processing MIPS and gain a platform to harvest insights from traditional and unstructured data sources. Without sacrificing the reliability and security of System z, business and organizations can better understand customers, optimize processes, and allocate resources.
The vStorm Connect software includes native data collectors to get rapid, low-overhead access to current z/OS data. It alleviates the need for SQL extracts, ETL consulting engagements with simple “point and click” data movement from z/OS to HDFS. EBCDIC code page and BCD issues are handled in-flight without MIPS costs, and users avoid the complexity of COBOL copybooks and the security risks, compliance challenges and delays of offloading data.
