PowerExchange 5.2.1 Data-intensive systems demand the ability to notice and report change, rather than getting bogged down in repetitive trips through static records. PowerExchange features a Changed Data Capture facility that detects data updates and delivers them via real-time or batch interactions, with minimal need for custom code. That agility earned Finalist honors for this product from Informatica, whose Application 5 suite was an Excellence winner three years ago (www.informatica.com).
