InfoSphere Data Replication tasks

InfoSphere® Data Replication includes real-time data replication capabilities to help your organization support high availability, database migration, application consolidation, dynamic warehousing, master data management (MDM), service oriented architecture (SOA), business analytics, and data quality processes.

Your organization uses InfoSphere Data Replication to complete the following tasks:

Integrate information in real time
Real-time data integration enables your organization to sense and respond to relevant business data changes throughout your enterprise.

InfoSphere Data Replication provides real-time feeds of changed data for data warehouse or master data management (MDM) projects, enabling your organization to make operational and business decisions based on the latest information. As your organization changes, data and applications can be consolidated without interruption. Data can be routed to various message queues to be consumed by multiple applications, ensuring accurate and reliable data across your enterprise.

Deliver data continuously
Continuous delivery of data ensures that your critical business operations are always available and contain the most current information.

With InfoSphere Data Replication, you can synchronize data between two systems to provide continuous availability. If the primary system is impacted by a planned or unplanned outage, a secondary system is available so that your business continues to run without interruption.

Publish changed data to multiple targets
InfoSphere Data Replication captures changed-data events from database logs and publishes them as WebSphere® MQ messages that can be used by other applications to drive subsequent processing.

Changes to source tables or events are captured and converted to messages in an Extensible Markup Language (XML) format. This process provides a push data integration model that is suited to data-driven enterprise application integration (EAI) scenarios and change-only updating for business intelligence and MDM. These changes can be published to databases, web applications, message queues, data warehouses, and other information brokers that are central to your business.
