One thing that is common across organizations today is that each one wants to be customer-centric and in order to be so, they need to be insights-driven. Insights-driven firms are growing at an average of more than 30% annually and are on track to earn $1.8 trillion by 2021 predicts Forrester.
These Insights-driven organizations are built on data. In order to have 360-degree view of a customer, organizations need data which is spread across disparate databases and data warehouses. Some data may reside on premise in a IBM DB2 database, or Teradata database or in the cloud in a Microsoft Azure SQL based on business needs.
Irrespective of where your data resides, you need a data replication solution for real time replication requirements in support of your data integration and analytics projects.
To help meet the needs of organizations who make use of Teradata and MS Azure SQL databases, IBM Data Replication Change Data Capture technology now supports targeting Teradata in the latest 11.4 product line. Previously, the CDC apply for Teradata was only available in earlier supported versions.
In addition, CDC is now validated to support targeting Azure SQL databases, which closely resemble Microsoft SQL Server databases, via use of the CDC for Microsoft SQL Server data replication target/apply.
CDC Replication supports Azure SQL Database as a remote target only. The CDC Replication target can either be installed on premises or in an Azure VM. For optimum performance, the CDC Replication target should be installed on a VM in the same region as the Azure SQL Database.
