Decision makers need real time information in order to provide strategic business guidance. When you make decisions based on up-to-the-minute information, your business is able to be more responsive and competitive. MIMIX® Share gives you a competitive advantage by allowing you to run reports on-demand using real time data. It can even capture and transform data from divergent sources and replicate it to a reporting or BI server, allowing you to perform queries, reporting, and BI from a centralized repository.

Enabling business intelligence reporting with Windows Azure

MIMIX Share’s cross-platform data sharing allows organizations with legacy applications and data to replicate and transform the content to alternate platforms, such as Windows Azure. How does MIMIX Share enable BI reporting from Windows Azure? As end users enter data into their on-premise application, MIMIX Share captures, transforms, and replicates the changes to the target database in real time. In the example below, the changed data is merged into a single, consolidated MS SQL Reporting database located in the Windows Azure cloud where Windows Azure-based Business Intelligence applications and reporting tools can access the consolidated data. With MIMIX Share decisions can be made based on current data just as quickly as it becomes available from any source.

Feeding real-time data to mission critical applications

MIMIX Share can also be used to feed data to mission critical applications – such as eCommerce, web portals, or other distributed applications. For example, data could be fed from a centralized ERP database to a distributed eBusiness system, of similar or dissimilar database, OS or hardware type.


Offloading production data for queries, maintenance, backup and more

Production servers need protection to ensure that they are always available and responsive to end user applications. One way to protect production servers is to offload production data to a secondary server (of similar or dissimilar OS or hardware type) so that work can be performed on the data without impact to the production system. One common scenario for offloading data is to send it to a data warehouse or data mart. Replicated data can also populate backup, test, and audit environments.


Integrates applications and keeps data in sync

In order to stay competitive, businesses need to accelerate information sharing and keep operations in sync between multiple running applications. MIMIX Share captures, transforms and replicates data between databases, allowing users to see each other’s data in real time.

Replicating data between applications running at geographically dispersed sites also allows data to be placed close to its users. This avoids the performance impact of accessing data from production servers across the network, and reduces transmission costs and times for frequently accessed data.


Custom database migrations

MIMIX Share provides movement and transformation across database platforms to make your migrations simple. It also minimizes downtime and impact on productivity by replicating and transforming data while users remain online and active. MIMIX Share’s hardware independence supports migrations from legacy systems to physical or virtual servers. For example, legacy DB2 data could be migrated to a SQL Server database. Migrations can also be performed to reduce the number of databases or database platforms that an IT organization must support.
