JM Family Enterprises, the 15th largest privately held company in the United States and a recognized national leader in the automotive industry, has selected Attunity’s data integration software platform to federate information between its diverse business units.
By using Attunity’s suite of data integration solutions, JM Family Enterprises becomes one of the first automotive companies to share company information in real-time with applications, business units and dealers.
JM Family has implemented Attunity integration platform in order to integrate data contained in mainframe data sources, DB2, VSAM and distributed data sources such as IBM’s DB2/UDB. The company has also implemented Attunity’s Stream solution with Changed Data Capture (CDC), moving only changes in DB2/MVS to multiple targets consisting of Oracle and SQL Server RDBMS and DB2/UDB. This allows JM Family to save mainframe processing time and eliminate the use of replication on the mainframe.
“Our requirements called for a solution that is capable of accessing numerous types of data sources in real time and replace our existing replication product, without a lot of added software engineering,” explained Hossein Fallahzadeh, Director of Business Intelligence, JM Family Enterprises. “As a company, we have decided to standardize on Attunity’s integration platform and have realized considerable ROI, especially with our CDC solution, which has allowed us to reduce our batch window as well as CPU resource consumption by leveraging the higher performance and throughput and off loading processing from our Mainframe while updating our Oracle and SQL Server databases, all with a single solution.”
JM Family has implemented Attunity’s integration platform for the purpose of exposing legacy applications to the Web, data synchronization, migration and business intelligence initiatives.
