When we say that we support the mainframe, we don’t mean just the data, or just COBOL, but the whole mainframe environment, including COBOL, PL1, and JCL, since many applications and jobs are written in these programming languages.

With EIIG, metadata ingestion from all these technologies and data sources is done automatically in near real time.

The ingestion does not cover only metadata from the endpoints but the lowest level details and connect the entire information workflow within the mainframe environment. 

As a result, EIIG enables organizations to discover what data they have, how it flows, and how it is used in their mainframe environment.

With traceability and transparency of all mainframe data assets, customers can more easily comply with regulations, better govern and manage the mainframe environment, and are ready for migration if they plan to move some workloads to a cloud platform.
