Pervasive Software Inc., a global provider of data infrastructure software, announced the release of its new infrastructure platform for customer data integration (CDI), offering the broadest and most versatile integration support for real-time CDI, including support for service-oriented architecture (SOA) implementations . The new release provides channel partners and their customers with a way to em power customer-centric organizations by incorporating data and business integration functionality in a suite of products.

The breadth of traditional and software-as-a-service connectivity - more than 200 data and application connectors - incorporated in Pervasive's platform provides the foundation for data integration services for any data model and for instant adaptability to changes in the data model. The new functionality has been added to Pervasive Data Integrator and Pervasive Business Integrator. T he release provides the data infrastructure to power 360-degree views of the customer via multiple CRM and ERP systems.

Pervasive is one of the few companies to provide data profiling as part of its product suite. Data profiling provides an essential layer of data analysis and integrity checking, allowing companies to pinpoint customer data anomalies before they hit CDI solutions, ensuring that business users and management can make informed decisions based on correct and complete data.

Industry research has shown that the typical company uses more than 50 core line-of-business applications, with larger enterprises having as many as 500. According to Aaron Zornes, Chief Research Officer of the CDI Institute, "90% of CDI implementations are still custom-coded or DIY by IT organizations using middleware." Using best-of-breed integration tools can significantly lower costs and increase speed to value by moving a company from a custom-coded services methodology to a specialized tools- and process-based methodology, with reusable components and mappings.

Pervasive Business Integrator is a integration solution designed to satisfy the technical and business requirements of today's integration systems by providing a unique, real-time, event-driven, message-based infrastructure. It offers connectivity to a wide range of applications and data sources, a distributed integration approach, and reusable components to speed implementation. The suite of design environments enables point-and-click integration design, allowing developers to build process flows that parse, validate, transform and route application information. Business Integrator also includes message bus support, XML-based integration repositories for storing design-time metadata, and a multi-threaded integration engine.

Pervasive Data Integrator is used to perform many-to-one migrations including data stored in legacy systems to transform, cleanse and load the data into a single system.
