CONNX SQL Data Access and Replication for IBM Mainframe
Grant your users an enterprise-wide view of data that is easily understood and accessible by standard SQL applications. CONNX provides secure, real-time, read/write access to data from DB2, IMS and VSAM running on IBM Mainframes.
Enhance your business applications running on IBM Mainframes by providing your data to the people, tools, applications and processes that need it in real-time with CONNX.
Business users can conduct real-time business analysis of your data from their desktops by using standard SQL applications, such as SAP Business Objects, IBM Cognos, CONNX InfoNaut, Crystal Reports, Access, Excel and Tableau.
Partners, customers and employees can integrate their data with your data, regardless of whether it is structured or unstructured, and deliver it to cloud and mobile apps.
Add CONNX DataSync and keep your data up to date without impacting the performance of your data sources. DataSync delivers near real-time data integration by incrementally updating only those records that have changed.
Open your data to new channels, applications and business services with greater ease
Give business users direct access to real-time data through SQL-based business intelligence, KPI and dashboard tools
Boost productivity of users and developers by providing direct access to data across the enterprise when they need it
Access data via ODBC, OLE-DB, Microsoft.NET and Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC)
Keep your data warehouses in sync by adding DataSync
Optimize your reporting with transformations that shape your data
Eliminate the need for large and resource-intensive bulk data refreshes by synchronizing data incrementally
Lower your operational costs
Preserve your investments
CONNX for IBM Mainframe data sources supports ANSI SQL, giving you the ability to write powerful and complex SQL statements and perform seamless, heterogeneous joins between DB2, IMS, VSAM and most other data sources. You can create simple queries and highly complex reports using standard SQL commands.
SQL data dictionary
The SQL data dictionary is a central metadata dictionary that stores all metadata for data sources and targets. It allows you to import and re-use existing data definitions and metadata from DB2 system catalogs, VSAM COBOL copybook and text files, IMS PSBs and DBDs to open access to the desktop, the cloud and mobile applications.
Enterprise views and federated joins
View data from relational, non-relational, networked, hierarchical, object and flat-file data sources through a single, easy-to-use SQL-based interface. Data appears as if it existed in a single, federated relational database.
Reduce workload placed on the IBM Mainframes by distributing query processing. CPU-intensive operations are performed where the CONNX client resides (i.e., Linux, UNIX or Windows), while allowing the database engine on the server to perform the tasks for which it is best suited.
CONNX DataSync Features
Automated data synchronization
DataSync lets you synchronize your data sources and data warehouses with minimal effort and minimal system requirements. You can continuously refresh your data with near real-time integration.
Full change data capture
Keep your data up to date with a micro-batch, low-latency change-data-capture that incrementally updates only those records that have changed.
Optimize system performance based on your organizationís needs by setting your update schedule to meet demand. You can schedule updates for low-use periods (i.e., after normal business hours) or as frequently as every minute when you need the most up-to-date data available.
