Progress Shadow

Factors like growth, mergers, new technologies that add to the increasing problem of integration density can consume infrastructure agility and can lead to competitive disadvantage. Shadow addresses this problem with a high-performance foundation architecture to support all the industry standard requirements for integrating mainframe data through innovation efforts utilizing services oriented architecture (SOA) and data-centered business intelligence schemes.

Progress® Shadow® offers a single, integrated architecture that extends SOA to fit in mainframe-based business logic, data and screen processes. It makes the mainframe a priority in a distributed SOA environment. Shadow distinctively develops native mainframe technologies to optimize performance, security and operational cost. Here's what Shadow can do for your business:

  • Mainframe integration without tears: Shadow is the only single, unified architecture to integrate virtually every asset on your mainframe to your SOA without the cost and complexity of point solutions. Shadow gives you a reusable infrastructure for all of your mainframe integration requirements so you don’t have to buy, install and manage a separate point solution for each and every project.
  • Drive your business in real-time with mainframe business events: Only Shadow adapts your mainframe assets for event-driven integration and SOA. Changes on the mainframe are captured, filtered and enriched in real time and immediately communicated to your business.
  • No MIPS wasted on mainframe integration: Shadow’s architecture takes advantage of IBM’s mainframe specialty engines so you can integrate the mainframe with fewer General Purpose Processor MIPS. As a result, you dramatically reduce your operational costs without using off-host gateways that increase complexity and compromise quality-of-service.
