Seamless data replication

Maintain your data warehouse in the cloud by synchronizing your data sources with minimal effort and minimal system requirements.

Widest range of database adaptors

Connect to 150+ data sources on mainframe, midrange, desktop and cloud platforms with standard SQL connectivity. CONNX DB Adapters provide read/write SQL data access supporting ODBC, OLE DB, JDBC®, J2EE® and .NET® technologies.

Unique support for legacy data

Synchronize your cloud-based data warehouse with non-relational data sources such as Adabas, VSAM™, IMS™, Rdb and RMS in an easy, standardized way without disrupting operations.

Metadata management

Through metadata management, you create a lexicon that combines all your data into a single, comprehensible structure without altering the source structures.

Data transformation

Take complete control over target database attributes including table and field names, data types, lengths, scales and precisions. Easily combine columns from any source table regardless of database type, and create new and unique indexes on your target table.

Extract Transform & Load (ETL)

Manage single- or multi-table transformations and synchronizations using an integrated query builder, or write your own SQL statements.

Replicate on demand

Scale your synchronization tasks based on demand—simply schedule updates for low-use periods, such as after normal business hours or as frequently as every minute when your business requires more up-to-date information.
