Real-time Change Data Capture Keeps Data Fresh for Business Applications and Analytics

Real-time Change Data Capture technology provides a foundation for delivering data to applications and analytics systems just as soon as it is created. Capturing data changes at the source, in real time, whether relational databases, streaming frameworks, or the cloud, enables fresh data to be delivered to new technologies, analytics platforms, or applications as change happens.

Without real-time Change Data Capture, delivery of data changes to business applications and analytics is not timely. Working with old data could cause your business to lose opportunities – or even customers. Depending on your business, data could be considered old in a matter of days, hours, or as little as minutes!

Connect CDC captures changes to data from production databases and replicates them to new data targets in real time. Connect CDC has a light footprint and protects sensitive data residing in production databases by securely filtering data before replication, so your users receive only the data they need.

Business requirements for reporting dictate that the fresher the data is, the better is it for gaining critical insights and competitive advantage. Real-time Change Data Capture technology can feed data changes as soon as they are made to processes that transform the data into the format required by the target reporting system and deliver it in real time – without impact to security, performance, or productivity. Rather than reporting on “yesterday’s news,” your powerful, well-designed decision-making system shows the current state of your business.

To ensure that your business has access to the latest data, Connect CDC captures, transforms and replicates data from production databases to reporting systems in real time. Connect CDC’s light footprint doesn’t impact the performance of source or target systems, and it securely filters data before replication, so your users receive only the data they need.

Data lakes provide your business with a critical platform for offloading the storage and processing of data. Data lakes are used to support a wide variety of analytics applications, from fraud detection to social media monitoring. The success of your data lake is wholly dependent on keeping data fresh with changes captured in real time.

Challenges arise when data lakes must ingest data from legacy sources, such as the mainframe. Data lakes do not natively understand legacy data sources. As a result, most companies either deliver legacy data in batch on a delay, and some choose not to include legacy data in their data lakes at all. When you leave legacy data out of your data lake, you risk having analytics that only show half of the full data picture.

Real-time Change Data Capture technology picks up changes to your data as they happen and sends them to your data lake to keep it fresh.

Connect CDC helps data lakes stay fresh with real-time updates as application data changes on traditional platforms, including the mainframe. Connect CDC uses Change Data Capture to pick up changes to your data as they happen, transforms the data, and delivers it in real-time to data lakes, whether on-premises or in the cloud.
