iWay Software Unveils Enterprise Information Management Solution
New Offerings for Data Quality and Master Data Management Reduce Total Cost of Enterprise Information Management Challenge
NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 18, 2009) - iWay Software, an Information Builders
division and an innovator of enterprise
integration solutions, today announced the immediate availability of a
Enterprise Information Management (EIM) Suite, which includes iWay's
new Data Quality Center (DQC) and Master Data Center (MDC) products.
Designed to provide complete business visibility with speed and accuracy,
the suite lowers the total cost of information management by addressing
enterprise information needs in a single platform with reusable services.
Information Management has evolved over the years from strictly
batch-oriented Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) processes building data
warehouses and data marts, into complete end-to-end business process
supporting solutions that rely on incorporating batch and real-time,
internal systems and external systems, structured and unstructured data,
typical reporting and dashboards plus real time event driven reporting, dashboards, and alerts.
With these challenges in mind, the EIM suite contains all of the necessary
components to meet today's demanding requirements. Built around the core
strength of iWay
Service Manager, the suite uses the industry-leading connectivity
options of the iWay Universal
Adapter Suite to provide:
-- Integrated content -- federated data, data warehouse, files, queues,
documents, e-mail, and ERP/CRM
-- Support for low- and medium-latency events, transactions, and batch-
-- Integrated ETL, event capture, and change data capture
-- Integrated data-quality firewall and master data management
-- Ability to enrich and feed business events and data extracts to
enterprise search engines
-- Enablement of real-time dashboards, scoring, and analytics
The two new products in the suite,
iWay DQC and
iWay MDC, are delivered in a single integration platform for real-time
and batch integration. iWay DQC is designed not only to evaluate, monitor,
and manage data quality in different information systems, but also to
prevent incorrect data from entering these systems in the first place. iWay
MDC enables organizations to consolidate millions of records according to
easily defined business rules, making unified and validated master data
instantly available to a wide range of enterprise applications, such as
ERP, CRM, self-serve portals, analytical tools, data warehouses, and other
"iWay Software is all about making the difficult easy," said Gerald Cohen,
president and CEO of Information Builders. "The iWay EIM suite delivers
rich functionality and easy implementation at a tremendous value. By
leveraging modern platforms and code-optimization techniques, this solution
requires a significantly lower initial investment."
In addition to the EIM Suite, iWay offers Business-to-Business (B2B) and
Business Process Automation (BPA) suites that also leverage iWay's
Universal Adapter Suite and integration server and are fully customizable
for a variety of enterprise needs. These standards-based suites provide
comprehensive end-to-end integration from any sources outside the
enterprise down to the individual applications themselves. iWay Software's
offerings support any information type, latency, and integration style.
