Updated SimbaProvider MDX SDK Includes Tools for Wider Interoperability Across Multiple Platforms
Vancouver, BC – July 11, 2007 – Simba Technologies Inc., the leader in standards-based data connectivity solutions, announced today that Interflex Datensysteme GmbH & Co. KG, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, has selected a Simba ODBC Text Driver for SP Expert, Interflex’s leading personnel scheduling product.
SP Expert is widely recognized as the leading solution for personnel scheduling with integrated online time management. Simba’s ODBC Text Driver will enable Interflex’s SP Expert customers to access large volumes of data held in custom .csv files through ODBC-enabled applications.
“Simba’s ODBC Text Driver provides many features our customers require,” said Robert Nachtrab, Head of Research and Development at Interflex Datensysteme in Erlangen . “We had a tight timeframe in which we wished to replace an existing third-party ODBC Text Driver solution, and Simba delivered a fully-featured and maintainable solution in record time and within our budget.”
Simba’s ODBC Text Driver includes functionality for custom metadata handling and transaction support – required features that were absent in Interflex’s original third-party solution. Simba’s solution also provides 64-bit processing capability and efficient handling of large volumes of data.
“With Simba, we get an ODBC Text Driver that we find is better than the one we used to license and we also end up paying less,” added Nachtrab.
“We’re very pleased that Interflex has chosen Simba to provide a new ODBC Text Driver for its SP Expert product,” said Amyn Rajan, CEO of Simba Technologies Inc. “Simba has worked with Interflex in the past to provide ODBC connectivity for another of its products. Simba’s ODBC Text Driver is built upon Simba’s proven SimbaEngine ODBC technology – the same underlying technology that Interflex successfully implemented for its other product.”
