Solutions for Modern Data Strategies
Syncsort took data integration to the next level with new innovative software and partnerships to help the growing amount of organizations interested in populating Hadoop Data Lakes with enterprise-wide data, including mainframe. Syncsort launched DMX-h, a new data integration solution designed to help customers achieve their modern data strategy objectives with a single interface for accessing and integrating all their enterprise data sources.
Syncsort followed-up this announcement by partnering with major Hadoop distribution vendors like Cloudera, Hortonworks and MapR to ensure DMX-h works seamlessly with these Hadoop platforms and takes advantage of their key facilities. When a new Hadoop project, Apache Spark became an important part of the Hadoop ecosystem, Syncsort integrated DMX-h with it as well, and implemented technology to make it easy to leverage all work done in Hadoop, whether in MapReduce or Spark.
Syncsort acquired UK-based Circle Computer Group, including its flagship DL/2 product, in the fall of 2013, kicking off its acquisition-based and organic growth strategy. DL/2 provides the rapid, transparent migration of applications accessing large quantities of data from the IBM® Information Management System™ (IMS) to DB2® on z/OS®, without requiring any application changes.
