GoldenGate Software, a leading provider of high availability and real-time data integration solutions, today announced the availability of GoldenGate Veridata 2.1, a high-speed, low-impact data comparison product that identifies and reports data discrepancies between two databases.
The GoldenGate Veridata solution quickly reduces business risk exposure, by comparing different databases without interrupting systems or the business processes they support, enabling users to act on any data discrepancies promptly and without impact to business operations.
"Data discrepancies are a reality, and these inconsistencies can arise even without malicious intent-due to infrastructure difficulties, application errors, operator mistakes, configuration errors or user oversight," said Sami Akbay, vice president of marketing and product management at GoldenGate Software. "Unfortunately, more often than not, these problems are only discovered and addressed after the impact to the business has already occurred. With the updated verification procedures in GoldenGate Veridata 2.1, companies can identify and eliminate data contradictions across business applications and address potential operational, financial or regulatory risks before they harm the business."
The GoldenGate Veridata solution is designed to ensure that two databases are consistent, to avoid unpredictable discrepancies between source data and replicated data. Using the GoldenGate Veridata solution, companies can audit and verify large volumes of data across a variety of business applications with a high degree of certainty, while maintaining reliable data synchronization. The GoldenGate Veridata solution reduces the amount of time and resources required to compare data, minimizes the impact of human errors, and allows potential problems to be instantly identified and addressed.
New features in GoldenGate Veridata 2.1 include the following:
- Delta processing enhancements which result in faster comparisons of large tables by only comparing what is changed since the last compare run.
- Set-up and installation enhancements include the ability to maintain various levels of security by user type and the ability to maintain security levels through the upgrade process to the latest version.
- Usability enhancements include significant upgrades to the home and navigation functions, broader data partition definitions and online help. All functionality is now available via command line interface which allows the user to automatically set-up compare schedules during maintenance hours.
- Ability to compare large data sets achieved through parallelizing and table partitions which results in improved performance.
In addition to GoldenGate Veridata 2.1, GoldenGate Software provides solutions that support mission-critical initiatives for high availability and disaster tolerance, as well as real-time data integration for data warehousing and live reporting.
