tcVISION supports IMS/DB as data source and target. There are several methods for the capturing and processing of change data. These processing methods can be flexibly adjusted to the customer's requirements, and can be quickly implemented into a production environment.


These methods are:

  • Capturing the change data in real-time
  • Processing of IMS log data
  • Detecting data changes using an intelligent batch compare process
  • Bulk transfer of entire IMS databases
  • Direct apply of changes from other systems (e.g. Oracle, Db2 LUW, SQL Server, IMS, Adabas, etc.)


The detected changes are propagated to the target system directly or are provided to it in the desired format. Due to a modular design, the data transfer process can be distributed across several platforms for optimal workload balancing. There are additional tools to adjust the data for the target system using the customer's logic during the transfer.
