DataDirect Technologies, a leader in data connectivity and mainframe integration and an operating company of Progress Software Corporation, and MetaMatrix Inc., a leading provider of information management software solutions, entered into a reseller agreement whereby MetaMatrix will embed DataDirect Shadow RTE mainframe integration technology into its family of products, extending data services management to the mainframe.

Leveraging the DataDirect Shadow RTE mainframe integration platform, MetaMatrix products can now create data services utilizing a broad range of mainframe database and application environments, including Adabas, Natural, CICS, DB2, IMS/DB and VSAM. Creating data services (rather than custom coding data manipulations into each application) enables developers to bridge semantic gaps more efficiently and create reusable modules that isolate the impact of changes in data structures. The result is a data services management system that seamlessly integrates mainframe data and existing enterprise data with the diverse new forms of data required by new projects, applications, and service-oriented architectures (SOAs).
