DataMirror Corp. is rolling out new software that allows companies to integrate mainframe data with other enterprise systems across the enterprise for e-business, business intelligence, customer relationship management (CRM) and other distributed data.

The new software provides relational access to non-relational data residing on mainframe systems and supports integration of heterogeneous data stores into relational tables. The software provides access to a variety of data structures including DB2, IMS, VSAM and sequential files (SAM) on MVS, OS/390 and z/OS. The technology allows implementation of enterprise applications eliminates the need for internal development of custom programming interfaces to integrate non-relational data.

"More than half of the world's business data still resides on mainframe systems," says Herman Wallenburg, Data Mirror's chief scientist. "The challenge is how to make this valuable data easily accessible to e-Business applications, corporate decision- makers and mobile users."
