The variety of connectors to read different file formats. This is important especially in the healthcare space where maintaining HIPAA compliance is becoming mandatory.
Not a large user community rely upon for help. Now that our users are proficient, we are continually finding better, more creative ways to use the tools.

Before purchasing speak with Actian on the direction they are taking with regard to their integration tools.
We receive and processes large amounts of data from a broad spectrum of sources. With growth in business came the realization that data volumes would ultimately outpace their manageability. To prevent this, we needed a set of tools that could not only digest and transform a variety of file types (ASCII, COBOL, EDI), but that also provided added functionality to enable full “lights out” automation of our loading process. Pervasive Data Integrator gave us this capability. We now pull files from a secure FTP server, decrypt, stage, transform and load them to our SQL databases without the need for human manipulation. This significantly reduces the time required to process data, and the data itself is inherently more secure. Analysts can spend more time turning this data into usable information.
