Rapid implementation

Metadata mapping enables the servers operational components to efficiently navigate databases and files. Dynamic metadata discovery helps to accelerate implementation.

Reliable operational platform

Subcomponents read and write from legacy sources using native I/O commands to maximize the native performance of mainframe data sources. This helps minimize errors and ensure database integrity.
