Quick-SmartData, the AS/400 database replication solution

Posted by Benoit David_ on Sep 27, 2017 7:45:00 AM

Many companies run their databases on AS/400 (IBM Power) servers and are faced with the lack of a solution to replicate their data in real time between these servers and their ecommerce platform server.
