The alliance will enable AssurIT to consult upon and deliver IBM Datastage projects to companies across the UK and Ireland.
The DataStage suite of products were acquired in 2005 by IBM through the purchase of Ascential Software and delivers these unique capabilities: The powerful ETL solution supports the collection, integration and transformation of large volumes of data, with data structures ranging from simple to highly complex. IBM InfoSphere DataStage manages data arriving in real-time as well as data received on a periodic or scheduled basis.
The scalable platform enables companies to solve large-scale business problems through high-performance processing of massive data volumes. By leveraging the parallel processing capabilities of multiprocessor hardware platforms, IBM InfoSphere DataStage Enterprise Edition can scale to satisfy the demands of ever-growing data volumes, stringent real-time requirements, and ever shrinking batch windows.
Comprehensive source and target support for a virtually unlimited number of heterogeneous data sources and targets in a single job includes text files; complex data structures in XML; ERP systems such as SAP and PeopleSoft; almost any database (including partitioned databases); web services; and business intelligence tools like SAS.
Spencer Lea, Sales Director at AssurIT comments ‘This alliance enables us to deliver real value to existing and new AssurIT customers who are looking to integrate and transform large volumes of data within their business. We have experience of delivering data migration projects on ERP platforms such as SAP, Peoplesoft and Lawson and can prove tangible cost savings and faster time to market. I’m very excited about this new alliance and look forward to working alongside IBM and its customers’.
