CA Technologies is a distribution partner for the vStorm Enterprise product suite, which streams transactional data from the mainframe to the target choice of the data scientist in near real time. The suite also includes Veristorm’s two specialized Hadoop Distributions; zDoop, a commercial version of Hadoop for Linux on System z and Hadoop on Power, an optimized distro that runs on IBM’s Power Series hardware.
“It’s extremely difficult for data scientists, Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) and other stakeholders to get access to their raw System z data in tandem with machine logs and other types of transactional information,” said Mike Madden, general manager, Mainframe, CA Technologies. “Veristorm provides next-generation data movement technology that makes it easier to move System z data into Hadoop, lowering overall total cost of ownership.”
CA Technologies database management business includes a suite of DB2 tools as well as enterprise databases such as IDMS and Datacom. CA Technologies is working with Veristorm to process and analyze data from CA IDMS and CA Datacom.
CA’s goal in partnering with Veristorm is to make it easier for System z customers to manage an ever-increasing volume, velocity and variety of data, so they can mine the data in near real-time. Data scientists want to provide valuable insights to drive business performance for competitive advantage.
“By bringing mainframe and distributed data together into one Big Data lake, data scientists can yield strategic insights that haven’t been available in the past,” said Veristorm CEO Sanjay Mazumder. “That’s what Big Data is really all about, providing new, valuable insights to drive outstanding business results.”
