AMB-PDM™ Now Sources IBM AS400 Running DB2/400 and Z/OS Running DB2 -- Directly With Its Data Empowerment Solution

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - January 22, 2008) - AMB Predictive Data Management™ New Generation Data Empowerment that currently provides direct sourcing with Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2/UDB and Flat Files, has now added sourcing with IBM's AS400 servers and Z/OS Mainframe. This provides organizations using legacy technology, that have been abandoned by many software companies, the ability to have their data directly accessed, profiled, analyzed and have corrective actions taken without moving these vast amounts of crucial, sensitive, strategic and private data to staging areas or black box repositories.

Citing direct benefits of AMB-PDM's sourcing of IBM's Z/OS, James Viveralli, CIDM Data Architect Technical Architecture for Erie Insurance Group, states, "Sourcing DB2 Z/OS directly from AMB-PDM will be a huge benefit to Erie Insurance. Most of our data is in DB2 Z/OS. Now we won't have to copy our DB2 Z/OS data to flat files, Oracle, SQL Server or DB2 LUW before profiling. Not only does it save time and space, it also increases the likelihood that data stewards will profile their data."

"AMB-PDM's sourcing of IBM AS400 enables us to convert from old COBOL legacy systems to web services and server applications and to clean data in existing DB2/400 applications. By having the ability to cleanse our data, we will increase our efficiency in the delivery of court related information to those court agencies that rely on this data," states Byrd Miller, Director of Program Development, Office of the Chief Judge of Cook County, Illinois.

AMB-PDM continues to broaden its data sourcing capabilities, platform extensibility, and web-based offerings. "We're committed to continue strong down the path of providing every organization new generation data empowerment, allowing them to benefit from innovative data management capabilities previously not possible," states AMB-PDM President Steven Meister.
