The CONNX for POWERflex module provides secure, real-time, read/write access to POWERflex files on PC and Unix systems. In conjunction with other CONNX modules, you can perform seamless joins between POWERflex and any other supported database.
With CONNX for POWERflex, a single metadata model can be created that spans all enterprise data sources and applications requiring data access. The result is an enterprise-wide view of data that provides a reusable, standards-based framework for information access.
CONNX for POWERflex supports the creation of views, which facilitates hiding table relationships from the end user. CONNX views facilitates the creation of heterogeneous joins between multiple disparate databases.
CONNX for POWERflex supports all POWERflex data types, including overlap and binary fields, and uses the natural indexes of POWERflex files to obtain maximum performance when doing joins with POWERflex files, even if there is no predefined relationship between the tables.
CONNX for POWERflex greatly enhances access to POWERflex files by providing secure access to data that is otherwise unprotected.
