Striva Corporation, a leader in enterprise data integration and the developer of the DETAIL data integration platform, and IBM announced at the 2003 International DB2 Users Group Conference and at the IBM Software Symposium 2003 that they are partnering to extend the new DB2 Information Integrator software for integrated access to mainframe data sources.

Customers today are faced with the challenge of integrating information across and beyond the enterprise in an effort to increase efficiencies and better serve customers. IBM DB2 Information Integrator software helps customers solve this pain point, enabling businesses to access, integrate and manage all types of data in real time, as if it were a single source, regardless of where the data resides. DB2 Information Integrator software also provides customers with a single, integrated view of data that is essential for business applications such as real-time data analysis and customer service.

Striva’s DETAIL is a data integration solution that delivers transparent access to relational and non-relational data from multiple sources at very high speed and with no programming. DETAIL extends DB2 Information Integrator’s reach to include native access to critical data sources such as IBM IMS, VSAM, IDMS, Datacom and Adabas. DETAIL delivers this data to DB2 Information Integrator in accordance with the access needs of each connection, whether that need is for bulk data, for changed data or for real-time data feeds. DETAIL also provides transparent access to midrange data held on Unix, Windows, iSeries, HP 3000 and ICL systems.

"With DETAIL and DB2 Information Integrator, a business can drive more value from existing information assets with real-time information integration, lowering the total cost of ownership and increasing return on investment." said Lauren Flaherty, vice president of marketing, IBM Data Management Solutions. "IBM is committed to work with Business Partners like Striva to take advantage of DB2 Information Integrator for customers."

"Integrating relational and non-relational data from different platforms and databases for use in a single application has always been a complex, expensive and painful challenge for IT organizations," said Paul Bach, president of Striva Corporation. "Combining DETAIL with IBM DB2 Information Integrator enables organizations of all kinds to give their critical applications transparent access to diverse, distributed, and real-time data. Striva is excited to partner with IBM on the introduction of DB2 Information Integrator to the marketplace."
