Information Builders Joins EMC Program

Information Builders has joined the E-Infostructure Developers Program of EMC Corporation. The integration of Information Builders' EDA enterprise integration middleware, Copy Manager data extraction, transformation and load (ETL) tool and Data Migrator conversion and interface tool with EMC's API technologies will provide users of EMC's Symmetrix Storage System with enhanced functionality.

Specifically, Information Builders' EDA middleware, which offers access to more than 80 disparate data sources, will be extended to support SymmAPI-Sockets to provide high-speed data movement through Symmetrix Enterprise Storage Systems and Enterprise Storage Networks. The combination of these complimentary technologies will allow EMC customers to rapidly access and/or move large volumes of data via EMC protocols. In addition, Information Builders' Copy Manager and Data Migrator will enable EMC Symmetrix Storage System users to populate and refresh data warehouses and ERP databases five-to-ten times faster than using traditional network transport and ETL technologies.
