There are many reasons why companies migrate data from one repository to another. For example, some organizations create databases that are used exclusively for reporting to reduce the load on mission-critical systems. As data changes in the operational systems, it must be pushed to the reporting databases. Alternatively, enterprises may routinely move data from production databases to archives, or to enhance performance, data may be distributed across multiple servers to balance the system load. The increasing popularity of cloud computing is also opening up new possibilities for organizations to store data in the cloud for any number of applications.
Business and Technology Challenges
For IT teams, data migration can present several issues:
- Speed of data delivery is critical when it comes to business intelligence (BI) and reporting. When organizations maintain a separate database to support BI and analytics, business users expect to have access to fresh information. IT teams need a fast mechanism for migrating updates. Typically, ETL products are not the best solution for this situation.
- Network bandwidth is often an issue for migrating data. The Internet is the usual way to send information to databases in the cloud or to systems that are in remote locations. However, if the network bandwidth is slow, data migration can take unacceptably long amounts of time. IT teams must have tools that are optimized for this type of environment.
- IT teams don’t have the resources needed to support complex data migration solutions. In today’s world, every business function has to do more with less and the IT department is no exception. The last thing IT teams need are data migration products that require excessive coding and are complicated to use.
How Attunity Can Help
Attunity Replicate and Attunity Connect are designed to help organizations migrate data quickly and easily. Attunity Replicate uses change data capture (CDC) and replication technologies to load data efficiently to operational data warehouses, to create copies of production databases for operational reporting, to distribute data across data centers, to offload queries from operational systems to reduce load, and more. Attunity Replicate is also the first data replication product to load data to SQL Azure for cloud data replication.
Attunity Connect provides real-time, seamless connectivity to relational and non-relational data sources on legacy platforms. Its Application Adapters turn existing business logic into reusable services, allowing applications to be integrated, migrated, and modernized quickly and cost effectively.
