Generix Limited is pleased to announce the release of CONNX 11 SP3. Building on CONNX 11’s core technology, this release includes a metadata comparison tool, 64 bit Unix and Linux support, performance and ease of use improvements, and enhanced support for VSAM.
“Systems, architecture and environments continue to change rapidly, often with far reaching implications. CONNX continues to be improved and enhanced in order for our customers to keep abreast of ever changing technology to remain competitive”, stated Leonard Klejnow, Director of Business Development at Generix Limited.
Metadata Comparison Tool
One of the key features of CONNX that makes enterprise information integration possible is our unique metadata repository, called the CONNX Data Dictionary (CDD). CONNX 11 SP3 delivers the CDD Comparison Tool, a new metadata comparison tool. The CDD Comparison Tool, quickly identifies differences and changes in metadata and can be used as part of a pro-active change control mechanism as well as a diagnostic facility.
