HADOOP ADAPTOR FOR MAINFRAME DATA
Convert Any Mainframe Data to Any Hadoop-Friendly Format
Bitwise’s Hadoop Adaptor for Mainframe Data is a stand-alone EBCDIC to Hadoop format conversion utility that converts complex mainframe data structures (including COBOL Copybooks) to the right structure for Hadoop (ASCII, Avro, Parquet, etc.).
Efficiently Convert Mainframe Data Structures to Any Hadoop-Friendly Format
As organizations look to modernize, they often have the need to push mainframe data into their data lake on Hadoop in order to perform analytics on their complete data and join it with data from other sources. However, mainframes use EBCDIC data format, which presents a challenge as Hadoop uses ASCII data format. Our unique conversion utility bridges that gap.
Convert Any Mainframe Data
A solution for converting even the most complex COBOL Copy Books to ASCII, Avro or Parquet format with optimal conversion performance
Efficiently handles all Mainframe, AS400 and other COBOL data files of any complexity.
Distributed Compute Power
Efficiently uses distributed compute power of big data platforms, so there is no need to maintain separate infrastructure for conversion. Data read, conversion and loading happens in single pass minimizing the I/O overheads.
Built to Handle Complexity
Our Hadoop Adaptor for Mainframe Data handles files with multiple records types, variable length records and signed, packed, binary and special fields can be converted.
Enables Advanced Analytics
Bring mainframe data into the data lake and combine with other data sources in order to enable faster and Advanced Analytics (link to advanced analytics solution).
o Delivers an optimized process to convert mainframe data to ASCII, Avro and Parquet data that increases overall data conversion efficiency and maximizes ROI.
Mainframe Data Conversion Process
Bitwise Mainframe Data Conversion Solution consists of three main components
Mainframe data is acquired using FTP and copy commands.
Conversion process executes on Hadoop, conducts SerDe transform process (Mainframe to Hadoop format, DATA TYPES, FIXED & VARIABLE LENGTH etc.) and converts data.
Once data is converted, data loads into HDFS (HIVE) for further processing.
