Las Vegas ignited considerable interest in HPE; NTI adds capabilities to better support NonStop!



Edinburgh’s European (NonStop) Technical Boot Camp (ETBC) proved to be very good for NTI as it took the wraps off its strategy for NonStop. Introducing the NonStop community to PROVisioning: Excellence in Data gave notice to all members of the NonStop community that NTI was very much aware of the strategy being pursued by HPE and was aligning its own product roadmaps to better leverage the new and the upcoming  capabilities of HPE’s mission critical systems portfolio. There are many ways to ingest data created on NonStop, but building products using Change Data Capture (CDC) methodology ensures the speed needed to participate in today’s always connected, always on, world is guaranteed.

There are many ways to analyze data but having the fastest solution for inclusion in analytics processing in real time means NonStop users have access to the information even as transactions are being processed. Whether the data captured on NonStop is destined for processes performing replication, integration, distribution or transformation – NTI delivers with the
DRNet® product suite.

Las Vegas gave new meaning to why speed is important. As HPE CEO Antonio Neri introduced Susie Wolff, who manages the Venturi Formula E Racing team entrant in the Formula E competition, it was all about speed as well as analytics as AI plays a very important role in turning these cars into winners. With HPE support for Wolff’s Venturi team, where resources were limited and tightly controlled, the presence of HPE overseeing the analysis of data meant the team could assign valuable resources to other parts of the team’s racing program. In business it is very much the same – the presence of NTI and the DRNet® product suite means enterprises can assign resources to where they can make a difference, like projects that keep an enterprise competitive.  Equally true, just as HPE ensures flexibility to adjust to changing conditions, NTI and its products provide flexibility as to where and to whom data is delivered.

In the June, 2019 issue of NonStop Insider NTI gave a brief glimpse into what would be covered in the plenary presentation given by NTI’s Industry Consultant, Richard Buckle. If as yet you haven’t seen this issue or have as yet not read the feature article, here is a brief update taken directly from the article, NTI – Launches PROVisioning: Excellence in Data!

DRNet® and DRNet® / Open anchor the PROVisioning for Replicate. DRNet® / Vision for Splunk> anchor the PROVisioning for Integration – the interface being JDBC for now with JSON to follow, as will support of Hadoop, Kafka, etc. shortly. PROVisioning for Distribution will be anchored by our partner’s product supplied by a NonStop vendor participating in our ecosystem. As for PROVisioning for Transformation this will be part of extending business opportunities in the era of Hybrid IT and will include new features to simplify the way enterprises get data into and out of platforms needing data. However, this extension of business opportunities will also include NTI’s move into providing DRNet® as a Service.

The key to the success of this new strategy of NTI is the CDC model at the very heart of DRNet® deployments today. NTI continues to do an outstanding job when it comes to excellence of moving data from NonStop to anything else – it works with SQL, Enscribe, TMF audited and non-TMF audited files – without the need for any additional products. NTI was the first vendor to champion CDC on NonStop and everything that goes into making PROVisioning: Excellence in Data important for all NonStop users will be based on CDC methodology.    

Formula E Racing looks for speed at every opportunity as it is speed that differentiates the performance of one competitor over another. When it comes to NonStop speed too is advantageous as is flexibility together with the ability to accommodate the changing product portfolio of mission critical products coming from HPE. As HPE prepares to offer all of its products on the basis of “a-a-S” so too will NTI, with work already well under way to support a vendor-neutral private cloud capable of supporting all NTI products to be consumed as services.

There will be more coverage of this in future articles and posts, but for now, if you haven’t read the article published in the June, 2019 issue of NonStop Insider, referenced above, simply go to the article by clicking on the hyperlink included above or just as  easily, cut and paste this link into you browser - https://www.nonstopinsider.com/uncategorised/nti-launches-provisioning-excellence-in-data/

NTI functions well with social distancing in place: even greater need for business continuity!

No matter how much we invest today in our home office, working from home is still that; we are at home, working. For many vendors within the NonStop community there has always been some of their employees who qualified as remote workers, but with today’s global pandemic still holding sway over much of the planet, it’s as if our home office has become the new “work central.” Almost nothing we do in support of NonStop customers sees us moving all that far away from our desks, whether set up in the living room, on the deck, in the basement or in the garage. What NTI would like to emphasize is that from its earliest days, NTI has been about supporting our employees who prefer to work remotely. Development and support have worked remotely for many years – it’s just the nature of our business, working with the NonStop community, but today, you will find all of NTI working from home in accordance with directives and mandates imposed globally. It has always been about our people and we h

NTI: Bringing our core competency to NonStop customers.

  The 2020 NonStop Technical Boot Camp (TBC), the All-Digital Experience, as it was promoted, is now behind us. For many seasoned NonStop community members, the knowledge that 2,000 community members had registered for the event and that the count of active participants routinely pushed north of 1,500 truly signifies that there is continued interest in all things NonStop. Within the industry, the “stickiness” of NonStop is well-known, but even so this turn-out by the NonStop community must rate among the highest ever dating back to the days of ITUG Summits past.   In the presentations given by NonStop team members, there was the inclusion of the NonStop partner ecosystem. A bright display of vendor logos, whether they sold products, provided services or consulted on everything from utilities and frameworks to the NS SQL/MX database. The NonStop partner community is thriving and in ways that continues to surprise other technology communities and for good reason. The knowledge of all thi

NTI - looking forward to the promise of 2020!

Today there is visibly more enthusiasm over the future of NonStop within HPE and it comes from the top, with executives talking openly of how they see the role being played by NonStop growing in importance. After all, as we heard said frequently in 2019, when it comes to NonStop then yes, we create the data! In today’s highly connected world, where access to data is instantaneous, having the right data in the right place is of paramount importance where data created on NonStop continues to be the freshest and highly valued and in an environment where HPE is telling CIOs that data is the new currency of business it’s pleasing to all NonStop stakeholders to hear of NonStop being talked about in this manner. Igniting the level of enthusiasm now in evidence among the NonStop team has secondary effects on the NonStop community that too are quite noticeable – a renewed enthusiasm for NonStop. As contagious as such enthusiasm has become it’s just the start, as the major role data repli
