Arbutus Offers a Solutions For All Your Data

Arbutus offers a number of key solutions for challenging data sources and challenging data problems like data access, migration, data quality, staging and ETL. Arbutus provides data solutions for both business and IT professionals that support direct access, analysis, and conversion of data from a wide variety of data sources and data types, including the most complex legacy and mainframe file structures.

Data Access

Data Access

Do you struggle with getting access to ALL of your data sources? Since 2003, Arbutus has been helping organizations access and use their disparate, complex and ever changing data sources from core financial systems to legacy applications. Arbutus has done the hard work and simplified how you can access the data you need without the costs and infrastructure normally associated with overcoming these barriers.

Two Main Data Access Capabilities offered by Arbutus:

1. Access and analyze data using Arbutus

With Arbutus users can work with a wide range of staged or live access data sources. Using only Arbutus Analyzer desktop, most data sources, even non-native pc sources like IBM mainframe, Unisys and DEC can be read and analyzed. When Analyzer is used with Arbutus Server components (Windows, Mainframe & AS/400), the capabilities to directly access native sources are opened up.

2. Integrate data into your desktop and web applications

Arbutus provides your Windows, web, and server applications with ODBC connectivity to all of your relational and non-relational data sources, significantly lowering the cost of fully utilizing all of your organizational data.

Get direct, real-time access to all your corporate data sources, including mainframe sources such as: Adabas, DB2, IMS, ISAM, QSAM, VSAM, and other complex files (i.e., virtually any data file in table format). You can also access your SAP data, Internet-based sources, as well as data stored in other environments, so that all of your data is presented in a unified environment.

Data Migration

Data Migration

Data migration projects come with many challenges and risks that often result in unexpectedly high outlays for acquisition, support infrastructure, and qualified personnel. Arbutus helps you avoid the costs, delays, and risks typically associated with legacy data migration projects. Arbutus Migrate uses a data-driven methodology that reduces both the costs and risks associated with the design and development of legacy data migration projects.

Migrate queries the source data directly, with no ETL programming required. Its read-only approach has two main benefits:

1. Migrate uses real source data, rather than test data, allowing users to identify and quantify data quality issues at the outset

2. Migrate cannot alter the source data, so the integrity of the underlying data is maintained

The technology behind Arbutus Migrate has been used for over 20 years by medium and large organizations to access and convert all types of complex legacy data sources. These purpose-built capabilities allow you to convert source data to the target system’s requirements efficiently and economically.
