Application independent access methods

When you need to produce a historical business activity snapshot in response to a discovery request or audit application independent access methods are critical because they allow the greatest support over the full archive lifecycle. This eliminates the need to maintain originating applications or versions. Independent access gives users the ability to view, query and report on data in archives using industry standard methods and reporting tools.

Consumption-based reporting

Optim produces reports from archive, delete, and restore processes that show detailed information about database connections, access, data throughput, index usage and other relevant statistics. This information is valuable for performance settings and useful for design considerations and troubleshooting.

Establish distinct service levels

Define service levels for each class or temperature of data so you can consistently achieve application and data warehouse performance targets. Set appropriate service levels for current (hot) data, reporting (warm) data and historical (cold) data.

Support for enterprise environments

As a single scalable solution Optim supports commonly used applications, database technologies and operating systems. You can work with Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, Siebel Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. Optim can be used with IBM DB2®, Informix, Oracle, Sybase, SQL server and XML database technologies and supports Microsoft Windows, Unix, Linux and IBM z/OS® operating systems.
