Automate migration of DataStage job with Enterprise Data Warehouse as the target to Hadoop

Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) optimization has been observed as the most common use case for data lake initiatives. Off loading EDW data into Hadoop provides a highly cost-efficient environment with optimal performance, scalability and flexibility. Data integration of various data sources into the EDW+Hadoop environment has been one critical challenge. Today's DataStage customers have many jobs developed to load EDW. As they implement the EDW optimization, they need to migrate their existing jobs with EDW as the target to Hadoop as the new target. The Hadoop target most likely will be HDFS or Hive. A tool that will automate the job migration by converting the EDW (DB2, Oracle, TeraData, PDA) Connectors to File/Hive Connectors will speed up the adoption of EDW optimization in development and deployment.
