CONNX 13.5 Upgraded Functionality and Expanded Database Support Makes CONNX 13.5 the Best Yet.

Generix Limited is delighted to announce the release of CONNX 13.5 which is loaded with features that we believe give our customers even more capabilities and greater control of your data, wherever it resides.

Business today moves at incredible speeds, so the fresher the data, the better the decisions you can make. If you’re basing decisions on stale data, your company will always be a few steps behind. Likewise, business intelligence reporting and analytics tools are most useful if they provide access to the most up–to–date information available.

InstantdbSync replication now includes MySQL as a real–time source on Windows® as well as Linux®. With a new native CONNX Driver for MySQL, as a user of MySQL you can now benefit from all the real–time tools provided by InstantdbSync. In addition, you can selectively undeploy replications using the Deployed Replications Tab.

ACD Replications is a special type of replication that tracks the operations done against a database rather than replicating the data itself. When an ACD Replication is selected, a source table is defined and a special ACD target table is created in the target database. The event producer will now monitor the source database for any transactions against the table specified in the ACD Replication and a record will be inserted into the ACD target table specifying each operation (add, change or delete) that occurs for the transaction. The ACD target table is a transaction log for the specified source table. New in CONNX 13.5 is added ACD support for MySQL as a source.

KPiSync helps you visualize key business metrics on any device, in real time. A new granular licensing option allows you to create quotas for users and usage, so you can regulate the number of pushes, number of users or number of KPis by user. CONNX KPiSync keeps you in touch with your critical business information from any corporate application or data store, any time, all the time, in real time, whether you are in the office, on the go or at home. KPiSync makes it simple to keep track of your critical business metrics simply by defining a key performance indicator that will query your enterprise data. These indicators are then pushed to your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device, using our secure, hosted cloud–based solution.

You also can send mail when a KPi is pushed or if an error occurs using the new SMTP feature.

Add-on Pro for Excel allows for quicker and easier data access to any data source within Microsoft Excel. The CONNX wizard allows a streamlined connection to be established and data selection for 150+ supported databases and platforms.

For CONNX 13.5, we’ve added read/write capability. In previous versions, users only had the ability to import their data into Excel and manipulate it. This feature was implemented for security reasons to uphold the integrity of your data and give a wider scope of users in your organization access to your data without worry. While this feature is still in place, we’ve added the “write” function which allows higher lever users the ability to make changes to their data, safely and easily using Excel.

CONNX 13.5 also includes support for SQL Server 2016, Teradata®, Amazon Redshift and SSL/TLS.

“CONNX continues to be improved and enhanced to enable organisations to take advantage of ever changing technology to remain competitive”, said Anthony Lightfoot, Product Manager at Generix Limited.
