A recent press release reports, “Syncsort, the global leader in Big Iron to Big Data software, today announced new capabilities in its Syncsort Integrate family of products that enable a continuous, real-time data stream from multiple data sources to applications requiring immediate availability such as mobile banking, fraud detection and cybersecurity. The new products provide speed, flexibility and resiliency for the most demanding enterprise IT environments. ‘More and more of our customers are looking to optimize data integration workflows between connected systems by combining CDC with stream-processing platforms like Kafka or Amazon Kinesis in the Cloud. Their data pipelines must be flexible enough to accommodate different delivery styles, variety of data sources and destinations in real time,’ said Tendü Yoğurtçu, CTO, Syncsort. ‘Syncsort’s data integration software leverages our unrivaled strength in accessing transaction data from multiple systems of record, including mainframe and IBM i, and allows IT to deliver it to users at the required speed, enabling multiple data pipelines with unique resiliency and scalability’.”
The release continues, “A number of today’s applications require data that is immediately available and current. For instance, when a user withdraws cash at an ATM, the transaction typically occurs on a mainframe, which in turn triggers a change to the customer’s record in the underlying database. If the user wants an up-to-date view of their balance in their mobile banking application, that change in the database record needs to be transmitted immediately to a messaging system that can reliably deliver the data as soon as it is available. The continuous flow of data to multiple targets is an ideal use case for Apache Kafka.”
