Running MDM Connector stage in parallel mode

You can configure the MDM Connector stage to run in multiple instances. In InfoSphere® DataStage®, this configuration is called running in parallel mode. In scenarios where you have a large data set, you can partition the data into separate sets with each partition being handled by a separate instance of the MDM Connector stage (partition parallelism).
