The CONNX for IMS module provides secure, real-time, read/write SQL access to IMS data sources on z/OS and OS/390. In conjunction with other CONNX modules, you can perform seamless joins between IMS and most other databases.

With CONNX for IMS, 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.

The CONNX for IMS distributed SQL engine reduces the workload placed on the mainframe by performing CPU-intensive operations where the CONNX client resides (Unix, Linux or Windows. i.e., remote desktop, Web and/or application server). The database calls are low level and minimize impact on the database processor. CONNX for IMS imports the metadata directly from PSBs and DBDs.
