Syncsort Enables New Business Insights with Mainframe Data on Microsoft Azure

Syncsort has added new data integration capabilities that expand support for Microsoft Azure, enabling enterprises to access, transform, and deliver critical mainframe data to Microsoft Azure SQL Data Warehouse to uncover deeper business insights. The new integration leverages Syncsort’s ability to integrate mainframe data into next-generation data management platforms for advanced analytics.

Microsoft provides a fully managed analytics platform that can be used to run complex, interactive SQL queries at every level of scale, combining fast delivery with strong data security.

According to Syncsort, its customers and partners are already benefiting from Syncsort Connect products that populate Azure Data Lake and archive legacy data in Azure cloud storage.

According to Syncsort, mainframe data remains largely inaccessible without the use of time-consuming, specialized transformations. The Syncsort Connect products, including Connect CDC, also provide cross-platform data lineage and increase visibility of data regardless of where data originates.

“Data-driven organizations are looking to leverage the elasticity and economics of the cloud for timely and efficient predictive analytics, making price-performance critical,” said Daniel Yu, director, Azure Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “Syncsort delivers the data integration needed to make mainframe and other legacy data available in Azure SQL Data Warehouse, which provides high-performance, low-cost environment for deeper business insights.”
