Vancouver, BC – November 27, 2001 – Chris MacPhail, CEO, Simba Technologies is pleased to announce the release of SimbaEngine 6.1, the latest version of Simba’s software development toolkit enabling the creation of custom ODBC interfaces to proprietary data stores.

SimbaEngine – A track record for providing the most complete ODBC driver development suite available anywhere!

For almost a decade, Simba has been the leader in advanced data access development technologies. Through the SimbaEngine ODBC SDK suite, Simba’s customers have created some of the most extensive and powerful database products and solutions in the world. SimbaEngine 6.1 builds on the foundation of previous versions, allowing the development of custom ODBC and JDBC interfaces to proprietary data stores, exposing information to reporting tools and the web.

More importantly, SimbaEngine allows customers to retain the proprietary and competitive advantages of existing architecture and business processes. Unlike switching to a relational database management system, which ultimately diminishes performance and control, Simba’s approach builds on top of your current processes and provides customized performance and control, while saving development and support costs.

Extending the functionality from previous releases such as v5.5 and v6.0, Simba continues to offer its customers products with a continuous upgrade path.

Feature and Enhancement Highlights available in SimbaEngine v6.1:

  • Continued cross-platform support now available on Linux
  • Support and compatibility for the JDBC 2.1 specification
  • Extended functionality and performance through enhanced PushDown Technology
  • New and improved documentation and technical references
