ASCI Connects ActiveBatch® Job Scheduler To Netezza® TwinFin Data Warehouse Appliance

Release date: 11/2/2010

New ActiveBatch Extension for Netezza allows users to integrate with variety of applications and databases - no custom scripting needed

MORRISTOWN, NJ – (November 2nd, 2010) – Advanced Systems Concepts, Inc. (ASCI), maker of ActiveBatch® Workload Automation and Job Scheduling Software and other solutions that enhance Windows™, Linux, UNIX, z/OS and OpenVMS systems among others, today announced it has joined the complementary technology partner ecosystem of Netezza Corporation (NYSE: NZ), the global leader in data warehouse, analytic and monitoring appliances.  The partnership is facilitated by a new Netezza Extension for ActiveBatch that enables users to both easily deploy Netezza workflows within ActiveBatch and connect with other common business applications, databases and platforms outside the Netezza environment.
Netezza is a leader in data warehouse appliances that combine storage, processing, database and analytics into a single high-performance system.  Led by its TwinFin™ line of data warehouse appliances, Netezza offers purpose-built systems that solve business problems quickly and easily for companies ranging from eHarmony, Neiman Marcus, Time Warner, and Estee Lauder to Nationwide Insurance, NYSE Euronext, and Virgin Media.

ActiveBatch’s new Netezza support is made possible through a new set of production-ready Netezza Job Steps in the application’s Integrated Jobs Library.  These job steps, which eliminate the need for command line use and/or expensive scripting, include NzLoadData for loading data into the Netezza appliance; NZ-PLSQL Block to execute SQL queries in the Netezza SQL language; and NZBackup for database backups.  In addition, the ActiveBatch Execution Agent can be installed directly on the Netezza host to support direct access to all Netezza operations. 
“Advanced Systems Concepts’ ActiveBatch is renowned for its cross-platform capabilities as well as its ability to simplify the job scheduling process,” stated Matt Rollender, Director of Technology Partnerships, Netezza Corporation.  “Netezza data warehouse appliances are likewise designed to remove complexity and speed time to value.  We’re pleased that ActiveBatch is now part of our partner ecosystem, giving our users another valuable tool for advancing their data warehouse effectiveness.”
ActiveBatch, one of the most widely used Workload Automation and Job Scheduling Software applications with deployments in 40 countries, adds strategic business value by automating operations in real time for improved IT performance.  The application allows users to centrally manage disparate jobs and workflows, including tasks involving the most common operating systems, enterprise business applications and even Web Services.

“Our inclusion in the Netezza complementary technology partner ecosystem is yet another way that database administrators and other IT personnel can create value while uncomplicating their daily tasks,” said Jim Manias, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Advanced Systems Concepts.  “By using ActiveBatch with Netezza appliances, users can easily create workflows with a host of products and systems including Oracle and SQL databases, SAP systems, with technologies like Java and Web Services.”

As a member of the Netezza complementary technology partner program, Advanced Systems Concepts service personnel will have access to technical and business development training for Netezza products.  The company will also benefit from Netezza’s structured referral program as well as other cross-marketing opportunities.

ActiveBatch integration with Netezza is separately licensed as an extension of the ActiveBatch system.  For more information about ActiveBatch, including white papers and a free copy of a recent Advanced Systems Concepts, Inc.-commissioned study on the economic impact of ActiveBatch, log on to www.advsyscon.com.
