What is Data Synchronisation?

Data Synchronisation:

If you want to keep multiple copies of data within your organization on the same platform i.e. z/OS or perhaps even across multiple platforms such as Mainframe, Unix, Linux or Windows then maintaining accurate and consistent data current across all of these copies makes it paramount that the data is synchronised in a fast and reliable fashion

The tcVISION Software Solution

The tcVISION solution focuses on changed data capture (CDC) when transferring information between mainframe data sources and LUW databases and applications. Through an innovative technology, changes occurring in any mainframe application data are tracked and captured, and then published to a variety of RDBMS and other targets.

tcVISION’s capture facilities detect changes in mainframe and other data sources without programming effort, and reduce the amount of data that must be transferred between systems to an absolute minimum.

tcVISION guarantees transparent, efficient and auditable data transfer between sources and targets, and provides powerful routines to perform efficient, reliable bulk transfers of data. The tcVISION solution focuses on changed data when transferring information between mainframe and LUW data sources.

tcVISION is an innovative technology that offers comprehensive abilities to identify and capture changes occurring in mainframe and relational databases, then publish the required information to a variety of targets.

The tcACCESS Software Solution

tcACCESS is the comprehensive integration solution for mainframe users who want to integrate mainframe data in their data virtualization or SOA solution.

With tcACCESS, IBM mainframe data can be easily and directly accessed, and API managed mainframe applications can be used in combination with client-server, web, cloud and Hadoop technologies – without any mainframe know-how and programming effort

tcACCESS allows the user or programmer to access not only Db2, but also all non-relational mainframe sources with standard SQL commands.


Direct access to ODBC/JDBC resources or Oracle and Db2 LUW databases from batch or online applications on the mainframe.

No limitation in the mainframe environment regarding the integration of new technology.

Significantly reduces the programming effort for data integration across systems.

Existing SAF interface: Mainframe security (e.g. RACF, TOP SECRET, ACF2) also works with the “New Technologies”

All data is accessed with SQL syntax.

The SSL protocol is available for a secure data transfer.


Relational view

Comprehensive relational view on IBM mainframe data sources such as Db2, VSAM, IMS/DB, DL/I, ADABAS, IDMS/DB, Datacom/DB, etc.

No middle-ware necessary

Simple call of mainframe programs from client-server (LUW) and web applications via existing APIs

ODBC/JDBC access

ODBC/JDBC driver/server access (read/write) to IBM mainframe data without programming from client-server, web, and SOA applications, and also from Cloud and Hadoop platforms.

Relational access

Easy relational access with CICS/IMS programs to data sources in an LUW environment such as Oracle, Db2 LUW, Sybase, MySQL, etc.

Keep existing business logic

Support of stored procedures for easy calls to existing business logic (mainframe programs) from client-server (LUW) or web applications and also from Cloud or Hadoop platforms.

Global Language Pack

The tcACCESS Global Language Pack allows for the SQL engine to additionally use multi-byte and double-byte code tables.
Therefore, all characters can be used for SQL statements and the returned data. UTF-8 encoding is also supported.

Programming effort and time effort for implementation and application of data exchange processes of all kinds are significantly reduced.

Unified and central application for mainframe, open server, cloud and Hadoop platforms.

Reduction of resource consumption to a minimum – mainframe MIPS consumption is avoided.

The synchronisation solution is independent from database manufacturers and offers arbitrary combinations of source and target databases.

Maximal data topicality – real-time replication across application and system boundaries.

In a nutshell tcACCESS is a comprehensive software solution that enables two-way integration between IBM mainframe systems and client/server, Web and SOA technologies without the need for mainframe knowledge or programming effort.

tcACCESS is a proven platform that facilitates SQL-based integration of mainframe data sources and programs into LUW applications using industry standards such as SQL, ODBC, JDBC, and .NET. SQL queries to access mainframe data can be easily created using drag and drop techniques – no programming required.

Data Syncgrinisation Diagram

tcVISION is a cross-system solution for the timely, bidirectional data synchronization and replication based on changed data. It turns data exchange into a single-step operation.

No middle-ware or message queuing is required.

The data is exchanged in raw format, compressed and reduced to the processing of changed data. Unidirectional or bidirectional data transfers in real-time, time-controlled, or event-based are supported.

  • The time window necessary execute the exchange processes of data on Mainframe and Open Server-Systems is drastically reduced.
  • The data replication and synchronisation process needs fewer resources.
  • Concentrating on change data ensures that only the relevant data is moved, resulting in fewer resources for the actual transfer and the data transformation.
  • Real-Time data replication immediately frees resources that are normally being required in the batch windows.
  • tcVISION automatically detects changed data with no need for programming efforts with a simple easy to use customer interface.
  • Data exchange processes can be implemented in shorter period of time with less manpower.
  • Replication of mass mainframe and Open System data (Bulk Extract and Bulk Data Propagation, File Compare etc.)
  • Change Data Capture in real-time on a transaction level. Transparent Data Propagation of the changed data into different target systems.
  • Direct access using SQL to production mainframe data (DB2, VSAM, IMS/DB, DL/I, ADABAS, CA-Datacom/DB, CA-IDMS/DB, etc.) from Client-/Server and Web applications using ODBC, JDBC/J2EE, .NET or API Direct access to data of Open System platforms from mainframe programs.
  • Support for z/OS, Linux, Unix with Mainframe to Cloud, Oracle, Windows, ADABAS, Hadoop, DB2, SAP Hana, IBM AIX, Data Lakes, Kafta, Sybase, SQL, HDFS, MongoDB, CSV, Linux on z/Systems, Unix on IBM Power Systems, Software AG, Flat Files and many more…
