OVERVIEW

Accurate business data is crucial for successful business operations. If production data is inaccurate or comprehensive test data cannot be created easily during the development lifecycle, applications may fail and business revenues could be affected.

InSync® is a comprehensive file and data management product designed to provide fast and easy access to business data from multiple sources, including Db2 and IMS databases and WebSphere MQ.

Mainframe data can be copied and reformatted to match new layouts or to create files in a wide range of formats, including CSV, XML and JSON, for use in a non-mainframe environment.

To protect sensitive data, such as personal information, it can be automatically altered and anonymized when copying production files to development and testing environments.

Large volumes of realistic test data can be generated automatically using randomization or specific rules. This approach reduces effort, ensures that the data is suitable for all test scenarios, and avoids the use of real production data.

KEY FEATURES

  • Intuitive user functions
    Easy-to-use data manipulation features let users browse, edit, print, create and extract application data in all types of z/OS files, along with Db2 and IMS databases
  • Advanced data manipulation
    Powerful search and selection capabilities make it easier to locate and diagnose data errors and to validate application data
  • Compare functions
    Users can easily compare z/OS files with identical or different layouts, source code libraries and load modules
  • Data privacy
    Data translation rules ensure that sensitive data can be disguised when moved from one environment to another, for instance from production to test
  • Data formatting
    COBOL, PL/I and Assembler record layouts can be used to format data displays
  • Batch processing
    InSync's batch processing language is designed to manipulate data in production batch applications and also lets users write their own fully tailored batch data manipulation processes
  • Simplified Db2 and IMS management
    Db2 tables and IMS databases can be browsed and edited without the need for SQL knowledge, which reduces dependency on database administrators
  • Extensive file utilities
    A wide range of file types can be created and manipulated, including VSAM, PDS/PDSE libraries and HFS files; CSV and XML files can also be created
  • Management reporting
    All enterprise data manipulation activity can be tracked and analyzed easily using Splunk, TIBCO JasperReports and other leading business intelligence and reporting tools
  • Eclipse and 3270 access
    Native and Eclipse interfaces can be used interchangeably to provide flexible user access
