National Life Group Adopts Attunity's CDC and Data Replication Software to Accomplish Enterprise Master Data Management and Operational Business Intelligence Initiatives

Customer Testimonial: Attunity's software products were key enablers of our data initiative aimed at improved operations and agent productivity

PR Newswire -- July 27, 2010

BURLINGTON, Mass., July 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Attunity Ltd. (OTC Bulletin Board: ATTUF), a leading provider of real-time data integration and event capture software, announced today that National Life Group, a Fortune 1000 insurance company, has adopted Attunity's CDC and data replication software to enable operational business intelligence and enterprise Master Data Management (MDM) in order to increase operational efficiencies and productivity.

"As a large organization, consisting of several companies, offering many products, and supporting hundreds of agents, we have master data spread across many systems, ranging from legacy mainframes to modern SQL Server databases. We set in place our 'Data Initiative' project in order to deliver accurate, consistent, and integrated data in real-time, so our agents can leverage it to be more effective," explained Jarugumilli Brahmaiah, Enterprise Architect and Data Initiative Leader at National Life Group."For example, following the adoption of Attunity's software, we can now understand and analyze top performers to determine what and how much is sold across our various business units, enable agents to leverage cross-selling opportunities to increase revenue opportunities, and shortly will provide our agents with a single portal where they can access real-time and comprehensive data across the various business units."

Historically, accessing data and performing BI at National Life Group was challenging and costly due to its heterogeneous environment, with master data stored across a set of data sources including SQL Server, DB2, and VSAM files, stored on systems ranging from Windows to legacy IBM mainframes. In this environment, users experienced high information latency as analyzing data, producing reports and making them available required labor-intensive custom programming -- a slow, costly and cumbersome process, with high IT resource overhead.

National Life Group selected Attunity Stream CDC software to deliver data in real-time across their heterogeneous systems, leveraging its log-based CDC technology to move incremental changes from Mainframe systems including VSAM and DB2, as well as SQL Server. In addition, the Attunity CDC Suite for SSIS data replication software enables fast configuration and deployment and eliminates the need for manual programming, providing tight integration with the Microsoft platform and tools. With the Attunity solution in place, making master data available in the SQL Server platform, National Life Group was able to complete their large-scale MDM project and extend comprehensive data in a single view to users requiring it for BI/ reporting and to agents needing it through Web applications.

Mr. Brahmaiah added, "Attunity's software made this project possible by providing data in real-time across our heterogeneous environment so we could leverage the Microsoft platform and have a flexible and robust infrastructure with a low cost of ownership."

"We are pleased that National Life Group chose Attunity CDC and our data replication solution to help them with such a critical, enterprise-wide initiative," stated Mel Passarelli, Vice President and General Manager for North America at Attunity. "The combination of our software with the Microsoft platform delivered a competitive solution they can build on as we continue to focus on supporting real-time integration, heterogeneous systems, and Microsoft technologies."
