BridgeWare provides the same powerful data transformation functionality and scripting language as DataBridger, with the added functionality of BridgeWare Change Detection – The component for HP3000 systems that permits delta change captures in IMAGE, KSAM and other MPE data structures.
For years, IT managers have been faced with the difficult task of making data from IMAGE and other MPE- based files available. With the retirement of the HP3000, this has become an even greater need. Taurus’ BridgeWare ETL software solution greatly simplifies the task of moving data between databases and files on MPE, Windows, UNIX and LINUX systems, allowing you to easily migrate, or replicate your data to extend the life or phase out your HP3000.
With BridgeWare, you can capture changes in databases and files as they occur, both on MPE and on open systems, and then replicate these changes to other databases, on other computers, either in real time or at scheduled intervals.
With BridgeWare, you can:
Perform staged migrations – applications can be brought over one at a time, instead of all at once.
Synchronize data across platforms for running old and new applications parallel during testing.
Synchronize data across platforms running applications you intend to keep on MPE that require data transfer to and from other systems.
Access and move archived MPE data as needed.
Build and update data warehouses on a frequent basis to provide the most up to data information for better decision making.
Support web server environments in near real time with most up to date order and inventory information.
Avoid needless MPE development costs – Eventually, your MPE system will be retired. There is nothing to gain by developing programs, reports and analytics for it. Because BridgeWare can create a relational database and populate it with current IMAGE data, the time and effort to develop new reports, queries, feeds to data warehouses, etc., can now be focused on open systems.
