GoldenGate Software, a provider of real-time data integration solutions, has announced that it is working with Swedbank BABS, a Swedbank company, to enable continuous availability of its payment processing system that can support over one billion transactions per year.

The GoldenGate high availability solution will allow Swedbank to perform planned system upgrades and migrations with zero downtime. Swedbank can authorize and authenticate large volumes of banking transactions using ACI’s BASE24 application, which runs on two HP NonStop servers located in disparate geographic locations. By using the GoldenGate Active/Active solution, both HP NonStop systems are leveraged and thereby facilitate continuous operations.

As both systems process transactions concurrently, the GoldenGate solution’s conflict detection and resolution capabilities are intended to identify and automatically resolve any data conflicts. During the implementation process, the IT group will determines the business rules which determine how to resolve any complex data conflicts and these can be automated via the GoldenGate solution’s out-of-the-box capabilities for the BASE24 application environment.

Magnus Kleveby, Systems Area Manager for Authorization Processing at Swedbank, said: Having evaluated various data migration and availability solutions, we decided to deploy GoldenGate because of its interoperability with the ACI BASE24 application, and because the solution had already been proven elsewhere at Swedbank where it was deployed by other departments. Our experience of working with GoldenGate has always exceeded our expectations in terms of service.
