Flatirons’ ETL Acceleration Suite Makes Application Retirement with EMC® InfoArchive™ Easier

Calendar May 4, 2016 | Tag , ,

Flatirons Solutions® ( announced today the general availability of its ETL Acceleration Suite, a set of tools that streamline the extraction, transformation, and load (ETL) processes for moving data from legacy relational and mainframe applications to the EMC® InfoArchive™ repository. By using Flatirons’ ETL Acceleration Suite—an EMC Certified Solution—organizations can reduce the number of time-consuming and error-prone manual ETL steps to speed up the retirement of legacy applications while ensuring accuracy and integrity of legacy data, thereby lowering application retirement project costs and achieving greater ROI.

“Today, IT departments are under increasing pressure to support innovative initiatives across their organizations,” said JD Sillion, Flatirons’ Chief Solutions Officer. “However, their hands are often tied by costs sunk into maintaining legacy applications that commonly represent 50% of more of the IT infrastructure, largely due to data compliance requirements. Flatirons specializes in helping clients in healthcare, financial services, and other highly regulated industries retire these legacy systems using EMC’s InfoArchive platform so they can free up millions of dollars in IT savings while ensuring compliance with data handling regulations. Our new ETL Acceleration Suite is part of our continued focus to give customers a faster and more cost-effective path to application retirement.”

The ETL Acceleration Suite simplifies data extraction and transformation from a variety of relational databases and mainframe systems and addresses common bottlenecks in the ETL process, including the reduction of data pipeline configuration time, faster data transformation, real-time monitoring, and built-in data validation.

“Flatirons has expertise in ECD technology, particularly where it comes to adding value to the EMC InfoArchive platform and the Application Retirement solution,” said Jeroen van Rotterdam, CTO, EMC Enterprise Content Division (ECD). “By leveraging the power of EMC’s solutions, the ETL Acceleration Suite offers additional ROI that enables organizations to move beyond a ‘do-nothing’ strategy and begin the process of application retirement.”

“Flatirons’ ETL Acceleration Suite is specifically built to automate some of the most time-consuming and manual steps in the ETL process for Application Retirement with the EMC InfoArchive platform,” said George Florentine, Flatirons’ CTO. “It supports a broad number of legacy data formats and can scale to support hundreds of millions of rows of data and terabytes of information, thereby reducing the time and cost of retiring legacy applications to help organizations reallocate budget for innovation.”

Flatirons is presenting the ETL Acceleration Suite at EMC World/Momentum May 2-5, 2016, at the Momentum booth.
