Southeastern Freight Lines Adopts Attunity Real-time Data Integration Software for OpenVMS to Enable Data Modernization
BURLINGTON, Mass., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ — Attunity Ltd. (OTC Bulletin Board: ATTUF), a leading provider of real-time data integration and event capture software, announced today that Southeastern Freight Lines (SEFL), a large trucking company in North America, has adopted Attunity’s change data capture (CDC) and data replication software to enable their strategic data modernization initiative and improve operational efficiency.
“As we rely on IT to enable growth and competitive advantage, we outlined a modernization initiative that will deliver a faster platform to enable us to provide accurate, real-time data to track shipments, manage invoicing, and measure transit time and load efficiencies. Such a platform will enable us to respond faster to customer requests, including freight hauling calculations and rate quotes,” explained Dave Robinson, Vice President of IT at Southeastern Freight Lines. “The new platform is based on HP’s latest Integrity systems, replacing our older HP OpenVMS Alpha servers, and on moving data from 1200 legacy RMS files to a relational database. We chose Attunity, which proved a reliable provider for many years, for their CDC and data replication software. It uniquely supports our legacy data and allowed us to move our project forward quickly and economically.”
The task of migrating SEFL’s RMS data was challenging because it required moving non-relational data to a relational database, efficiently moving incremental changes during the migration process, and simultaneously accessing the data from both the new and old systems. Recognizing that implementing a homegrown solution would prove a time-intensive and costly process, SEFL looked for out-of-the-box software tools that could simplify and accelerate the modernization project. SEFL selected Attunity RMS-CDC for SSIS, data replication software that is dedicated to creating a copy of RMS files in a relational database in an efficient and real-time manner. By being fully integrated with SQL Server, the software enables the IT department to leverage their existing skills to reduce costs and accelerate implementation. Finally, leveraging Attunity’s unique log-based CDC technology, SEFL were able to achieve low-impact on their existing infrastructure.
“If you use RMS, you should take a look at Attunity’s RMS-CDC for SSIS solution,” said John Apps, OpenVMS Ambassador at HP Corporation. Through the years, I have worked closely with Southeastern Freight Lines and other customers experiencing similar challenges. This is the first product I came across that makes it easy to capture changed RMS data and propagate it to relational databases and other data sources. Now customers have a competent, affordable solution at their fingertips, with a company that backs their product with extensive OpenVMS expertise, knowledge and service.”
“Our software made the difference for SEFL by making their legacy business data accessible in real-time in a modern platform,” stated Mel Passarelli, Vice President and General Manager for North America at Attunity. “We are pleased that SEFL has placed their trust with us again and in that vein, we will continue to provide innovative technology solutions for the HP OpenVMS market that enable enterprises to capitalize on the value of real-time information.”
