Pervasive Data Integrator 9.0 Architecture Enables Partners to Build Custom Adapters, Extend Applications in a Flash
Latest Data Integration Offering Expands SOA Enablement, Provides Microsoft Vista Support and Extends Healthcare Standards Compatibility
AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 14 -- Pervasive Software® Inc. (NASDAQ:PVSW), a global value leader in agile, embeddable data management and integration software (http://www.pervasive.com/), today announced the release of Pervasive Data Integrator(TM) v9.0, the latest release of its integration software that aggregates data from multiple information sources to and from a myriad of applications and data stores. With more than 150 adapters, Pervasive Data Integrator's recent enhancements provide organizations with an open architecture solution that enables customers, partners and developers to more easily build custom adapters and SaaS vendors and ISVs to quickly extend applications for more rapid integration capabilities. In addition, new healthcare adapters for HL7 to XML and NCPDPD to XML make Pervasive ideal for ESB and SOA healthcare data integration
Pervasive continues to expand its position in the market as an affordable, highly scalable, robust solution optimized for ISVs, SaaS vendors and small and mid-sized businesses and departments of enterprise organizations.
Pervasive Data Integrator features extensive capabilities that provide organizations with the most up-to-date data for their business needs, whether the need is for scalable Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) capabilities for rapid design and maintenance of transactional processes that move data or for direct connectivity to enterprise applications and legacy data stores, along with support for industry trade standards -- including Web Services and J2EE standards. The Pervasive Data Integrator infrastructure is designed especially for advanced business processes and data flows, accessible via easy-to-use graphical design tools.
"We believe Pervasive is right to focus on ease of use, no IT involvement, fast deployments and cost-conscious pricing for its integration wares," states Krishna Roy, analyst for Enterprise Software with The 451 Group, a technology industry analyst company focused on the business of enterprise IT innovation, in her report. She also said, "Pervasive has a broader range of tools for integrating on-premise and SaaS data than many players in its space..." These comments appeared in an independent report, titled "Pervasive goes beyond SaaS/on-premise to custom integrations, revs Data Integrator 9.0," which was published on September 27 of this year.
As more and more organizations deploy the latest business applications and platforms on top of existing legacy applications, Pervasive tools help organizations to increase their competitive edge. New features in Pervasive Data Integrator include:
o A new Data Services platform with a SDO (Service Data Objects) standards-based Data Mediation Services (DMS) software developer kit that allows Pervasive and subsequently partners and customers to rapidly create new adapters
o A Progress Sonic ESB 7.0 Service Container that makes it easier for Progress Sonic customers to understand, use and leverage ESB functionality, such as failover, scalability and reliability, while integrating Pervasive's 150+ adapters, including legacy applications like SAP and new SaaS applications like Salesforce and Siebel On Demand, to the Progress Sonic ESB
o Bidirectional HL7 to XML and NCPDP scripts to enrich support for ESB and SOA healthcare implementations, simplify validation and transformations
o Microsoft Vista(TM) Support (32-bit) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, expanding the already large OS platform support Pervasive provides
o New and updated connectors and components including Pervasive PSQL Summit(TM) v10, Saleslogix7, IBM MQ Series 6, SFTP and Salesforce 10 with new components
o A Web Service License Manager to enable customers and partners to obtain licenses from within Pervasive Data Integrator via a Web service, reducing administration costs and time
"Pervasive provides the last mile of integration for the Progress Sonic ESB through tightly coupled data integration (http://www.pervasive.com/) services and connectivity to the Progress Sonic infrastructure. This relationship enables Progress to simplify integration of hard-to-reach endpoints and quickly deliver flexible re-use of business applications within a service-oriented architecture (SOA)," comments Hub Vandervoort, CTO, Enterprise Infrastructure Division, Progress Software. "Pervasive Data Integrator seamlessly integrates fully at the ESB layer of the Sonic infrastructure, is visible from within the Sonic Management Console for greater control and is capable of dealing with widely divergent endpoints. It utilizes its own transformation capabilities to provide the intelligence to power rich data services that support batch and real-time executions. In addition, Pervasive's upcoming commitment to SCA and SDO will help augment our evolving composite application strategy."
"The SOA-friendly architecture of Pervasive Data Integrator version 9 complements the Web services-based architecture in our planned release of FAMIS Xi early next year," said Dave Levenstein, Manager of Business Development for FAMIS Software, Inc. "As we enhance our architecture to offer FAMIS capabilities as Web services, we can leverage the continuing innovation that Pervasive demonstrates in its new Pervasive Data Integrator release."
LifeMasters Supported SelfCare, Inc. is a disease management company that receives data from health payors in various formats including flat files, COBOL, HIPAA, and HL7. "Pervasive's ability to handle X12 healthcare standard formats and the flexibility of the tool enables us to implement new clients much more quickly," states Steve Hromyko, ETL Manager for LifeMasters. "Pervasive Data Integrator enables LifeMasters to completely automate the ETL process, saving significant time and resources. So far, we have been able to transform all data files using a single map thanks to the Pervasive tool." In addition to the Data Integrator, LifeMasters uses Pervasive Data Profiler to profile and validate data after the initial data load.
"Partners and customers such as Progress Software, FAMIS Software and LifeMasters capitalize on the unique benefits Pervasive integration offers to leverage technology advances," said Mike Hoskins, CTO and general manager of Integration Products at Pervasive. "Pervasive Data Integrator uniquely combines agility, robustness and scalability to provide enterprise-capable integration at an affordable price. Pervasive meets the needs of organizations that want nimble, leading-edge integration but that do not want to consume expensive, complex large integration stacks."
