Synchronize IBM Z data to the cloud for modern cloud data architectures

Transactional data is the definitive source of truth and represents the current state of the business for many organizations. This highly valuable IBM Z® data, combined with other lakehouse data, can provide unique predictive value for artificial intelligence (AI) insights.

Seamlessly synchronize valuable enterprise IBM Z data to your IBM® watsonx.data™ lakehouse to unlock the power of mainframe transactional data for AI, by using the most up-to-date transactional data in machine learning or AI models.

  • Reduce time for accessing and analyzing mainframe data with a revolutionary simplified approach to synchronizing mainframe data.
  • Apply as much compute to a complex analysis as you want and need without impacting operational applications.
  • Support cloud-based lakehouse initiatives with reduced cost and effort.
  • Synchronize IBM® Db2® for z/OS®, IMS and VSAM data to the Iceberg open table data format in watsonx.data.
