Rocket Software, Inc. (www.rocketsoftware.com) today announced the general availability of Rocket z/SQL for IBM System z customers who are ready to turn their valuable petabytes of non-relational data into actionable intelligence. Rocket z/SQL is a new product that allows mainframe data to better integrate with enterprise business intelligence and analytics initiatives while reducing cost and complexity.

“We recognize that data is a huge challenge, and a huge opportunity, for our customers,” says Sam Elias, Rocket Vice President and General Manager. “Our customers see real value in accessing their data in place with standard off the shelf tools that speak SQL. Rocket z/SQL makes non-relational data as simple to access as an Excel spreadsheet.”

“We are rapidly heading towards a world of analytics everywhere,” said Dan Sommer principal research analyst at Gartner. “Gartner predicts that analytics will reach 50 percent of potential users by 2014. By 2020, that figure will be 75 percent, and we will be in a world where systems of record, systems of differentiation and systems of innovation are enabling IT, business and individuals to analyze data in a much denser fashion than before.”

Rocket z/SQL gives organizations industry-standard access to non-relational mainframe data without moving data off the mainframe. Traditional approaches require complex techniques, steps, and processes that move, copy, and transfer mainframe data before information can be used by applications and decision makers. With Rocket z/SQL, data is accessible in place through any SQL tool. Rocket z/SQL utilizes patent-pending integration architecture to perform all data transformations and joins in place – on the mainframe – with significantly reduced processing costs.
