Middleware for IBM DB2
System integrators have the option to use IBM DB2 for credit reports as an alternative to Microsoft's SQL 2000 Server when implementing the MERit Credit Engine, a leading middleware solution for credit bureau access. DB2 has become the fastest growing relational database on the market today.
The Merit Credit Engine is credit report middleware. Front-end applications control the user interface, formatting of credit bureau information, credit scoring, and decisionning. Bureau connectivity, authentication, authorization, storage, and parsing of credit report data is handled by the middleware. Development and deployment times have been significantly reduced with the addition of DB2 support, including the new XML and tri-merge credit report capabilities.
The MERit Credit Engine (MCE) satisfies a mission-critical need for companies
developing systems that require credit report data from Experian, Equifax,
and/or Trans Union. It operates using a MS SQL Server or IBM DB2 database, and
allows implementers to retain control of their entire system, without added
per-transaction costs, including merged XML reports.
