Ivory Hub is the latest in our continuum of solutions to help organizations tap the valuable data inside their mainframes and meet current business needs faster.

GT Software, a leading provider of technology solutions for enterprise modernization, today released Ivory Hub, a comprehensive product suite that allows enterprises to meet today’s demands for rapid application delivery for mobile, web, and cloud. By leveraging Ivory Hub, organizations are able to modernize their mainframe investment in a flexible, secure and low-maintenance environment.

“Organizations today need to solve critical enterprise data needs without the traditional complexities or lengthy deployment times associated with many solutions,” said Chris Garner, senior vice president of GT Software. “GT Software has long understood the importance of enabling customers to optimize their mainframe investments. Ivory Hub is the latest in our continuum of solutions to help organizations tap the valuable data inside their mainframes and meet current business needs faster.”

The Ivory Hub product suite enables users to tackle various business challenges from direct access to data and applications to transferring data between mainframe and non-mainframe systems. Unlike other solutions, Ivory Hub removes the complexities from these tasks, requires minimal professional services and operates in a multi-platform environment. Users also are able to install Ivory Hub without any prerequisites. This further simplifies the installation process and, in many cases, streamlines the process to an hour or less.

The high-performance solution also provides SQL access to distributed data and allows users to deploy access through a gateway or directly, depending on their preferred deployment option. In addition, Ivory Hub includes broad support for industry standards and better relational mapping.

Some components of the Ivory Hub solution set include:

  • Ivory Hub z/Server, which enables fast, easy SQL access via ODBC/JDBC to mainframe data and apps on the z/Server or VSE platform
  • Ivory Hub Enterprise Access, which enables SQL access to distributed data on mainframe and non-mainframe (LAN-based) platforms from single SQL queries

Supported access environments include:

  • Adabas
  • IMS and DL/I
  • CICS
  • DB2
  • VSAM
  • Datacom/R or Datacom SQL
  • Sequential disk

“Ivory Hub provides organizations the increased flexibility they need to access and transfer data from any source and for any business process from data transfer to batch processing,” Garner said. “GT Software has focused on delivering a solution that offers a higher level of functionality in a user-friendly manner - making Ivory Hub the smart alternative for modernizing mainframes.”
