Syncsort Incorporated Key Developments

Syncsort Announces New Capabilities in Ironstream Software

Syncsort announced new capabilities in its Ironstream® software that allows organizations to access and integrate mainframe log data in real-time to Splunk® IT Service Intelligence (Splunk ITSI). The integration of Ironstream with Splunk ITSI provides users with new levels of visibility into the health and performance indicators of mainframe and mainframe-to-distributed IT services. Splunk ITSI, a machine learning powered monitoring solution, enables organizations to monitor and visualize their most critical business services and processes with dashboards and interactive visualizations. Administrators can get real-time health check and insights into critical performance indicators to help deliver better response time and more reliable services to their customers. The new Syncsort Ironstream Module for Splunk ITSI delivers information about large-scale mainframe business processes and services that play a core role in many organization's key customer transactions. Leveraging the data Ironstream delivers, Splunk ITSI gives customers a "Glass Table" view to monitor key activities that affect availability and response times for application services from across the enterprise, including IBM z Systems.

Compuware Corporation and Syncsort Incorporated Announce Partnership

Compuware Corporation announced the integration of its Compuware Abend-AID application fault discovery and analysis solution with Syncsort Ironstream®, which captures and forwards mainframe operational data to analytic tools such as Splunk. The integration of these two solutions enables IT to more quickly discover and act upon correlations between application faults and broader conditions in the mainframe environment "even as enterprises, out of necessity, shift operational responsibilities for the platform to staffs with limited experience on z/OS. In complex enterprise environments, correlations between application behaviors and underlying infrastructure can be both subtle and critical. What appear to be platform issues may turn out to be software faults "and vice versa. By marrying these two important categories of data together in an organization’s analytic environment of choice, the Abend-AID/Ironstream integration helps IT staffs get richer, more complete insight into service delivery issues. Analytic insight into abends can help mainframe dev/test/ops managers determine which personnel may require additional training and where DevOps processes may need improvement. In addition, integration of operational data and abend data can be useful for security forensics, compliance reporting and other core IT disciplines.

Syncsort Announces New Open Metadata Management Capabilities in its DMX-h Data Integration Software

Syncsort announced new open metadata management capabilities in its DMX-h data integration software that, along with its seamless integration with Cloudera Navigator make Big Data governance easier. The company's multi-award winning DMX-h provides organizations with a single interface for accessing and integrating all enterprise data, including IBM z mainframes, and the flexibility to use the metadata that best meets their needs, on premise and in the cloud. New open metadata management capabilities support big data governance with unprecedented flexibility and choice In new capabilities delivered this month, company extends metadata management by publishing DMX-h metadata, including data flow definitions and lineage tracking information, in an open format that can be easily consumed by and integrated with any metadata repository. This metadata keeps track of processing done inside or outside a distributed computing cluster. Rather than locking users into a proprietary metadata format, Syncsort's latest capabilities employ a file-based metadata approach and integrates seamlessly with Hadoop-based metadata repositories such as HCatalog and HDFS. With the new capabilities, DMX-h exports cross-platform metadata in an open comma delimited .csv text format that any system can import. This data can be loaded into databases or other metadata repositories, used in governance audit reports and analyzed in other third party tools. Organizations can leverage Syncsort's differentiated approach to integrate their Big Data lineage information with the metadata management tool of their choice and transition from existing in-house tools to the Hadoop based metadata management tools such as Cloudera Navigator at their own pace. DMX-h can be deployed via Cloudera Manager and supports Hadoop-based security protocols, such as Kerberos, for data security and privacy and Apache Sentry for fine grained data access control. The new Big Data governance capabilities are now available in DMX-h v9, which allows organizations to securely access and integrate batch and real-time data streams from multiple enterprise data sources, including Kafka, mainframe, relational databases and unstructured sources in the same data pipeline feeding Hadoop and Spark, where customers can then leverage advanced analytics for competitive advantage, on-premise and in the cloud.
