Ensuring Data Consistency with Oracle GoldenGate Veridata

Guest Author

24/7/365, fast-paced world brought the need for high data availability and with
that came redundant distributed copies of the data. In our complex IT
environment, maintaining data consistency across these distributed systems is
not a trivial task unfortunately. Data discrepancy occurs for many reasons, including
database configuration differences between source and target, configuration
errors during data migration, user errors, gaps in data replication or
replication lags. Even when using
products that replicate data reliably, such as Oracle GoldenGate, there remain
potential causes of data discrepancy.

When data
discrepancies occur, businesses can see its impact in the form of incorrect
decision-making; failed service-level agreements; and ultimately, operational,
financial, and legal risk.

GoldenGate Veridata
helps companies avoid these risks and operate their
redundant systems with high confidence knowing that their backup systems,
reporting databases, multi-master replication environments have consistency. Oracle GoldenGate Veridata provides an
easy-to-use yet powerful solution for identifying out-of-synch data before it
negatively impacts the business.

Deployed together with the Oracle GoldenGate
real-time data replication  prod
uct or separately, Oracle GoldenGate Veridata
ensures data consistency is maintained across databases. The software enables
periodic checks—as frequently as desired—between heterogeneous source and the target
databases without taking either system offline.

Some of the benefits of the product include:

  • Reduced risk
    Knowing about data inconsistencies can help address issues before
    they impact business operations. Oracle GoldenGate Veridata identifies data
    discrepancies so that corrective measures can be quickly taken.
  • Improve IT Productivity. Oracle GoldenGate Veridata's automated data comparison capabilities reduces the time and resources required for data validation Graphical illustrations and detailed reports clearly
    convey the key results and specific data disparities so that IT can take
    immediate corrective action. If there are no inconsistencies, user
    s can
    document the accuracy of their data for regulatory compliance reporting needs.
  • Continuous operation during validation. With its ability to compare in-flight transactions, Oracle
    GoldenGate Veridata supports databases that are in use without interrupting
    business operations. Combining a light footprint and groundbreaking technology,
    the application imposes minimal impact on technology infrastructure.
