Efficiently Convert Mainframe Data Structures to Any Hadoop-Friendly Format

As organizations look to modernize, they often have the need to push mainframe data into their data lake on Hadoop in order to perform analytics on their complete data and join it with data from other sources. However, mainframes use EBCDIC data format, which presents a challenge as Hadoop uses ASCII data format. Our unique conversion utility bridges that gap.

Convert Any Mainframe Data

A solution for converting even the most complex COBOL Copy Books to ASCII, Avro or Parquet format with optimal conversion performance

Key Benefits:

Page-1
Comprehensive solution

Efficiently handles all Mainframe, AS400 and other COBOL data files of any complexity.

Page-1-2
Distributed Compute Power

Efficiently uses distributed compute power of big data platforms, so there is no need to maintain separate infrastructure for conversion. Data read, conversion and loading happens in single pass minimizing the I/O overheads.

Bitwise Mainframe Data Conversion Solution consists of three main components

Acquire

Mainframe data is acquired using FTP and copy commands.

Conversion

Conversion process executes on Hadoop, conducts SerDe transform process (Mainframe to Hadoop format, DATA TYPES, FIXED & VARIABLE LENGTH etc.) and converts data.

Loading

Once data is converted, data loads into HDFS (HIVE) for further processing.
