Until now, data retrieval and tracing its lineage from core and legacy systems have been complex and time-consuming. With OpenLegacy, it is easy to leverage legacy system assets including ones from IMS databases quickly and easily. In the case of Collibra, OpenLegacy connects legacy systems directly to the Collibra APIs without complex middleware. The integration is an efficient way to transfer metadata and data from the legacy to Collibra’s platform.
The Integration Benefits include:
- Easy tracing of data lineage and impact analysis
- No legacy skills needed – Integration is easily generated by a single Java developer
- Access to current data – No snapshots – retrieving what data you need when you need it
The two companies together enable Collibra’s users to build a complete catalog of the data assets. OpenLegacy’s platform can quickly pull metadata for any legacy asset including tough ones like IMS, AS/400, VSAM, and even data only accessible through business logic in custom mainframe applications.
For further details on how OpenLegacy works with IMS please look at the attached datasheet and/or webcast.
