Business-to-Business Connectivity and Best-in-Class Integration Solution For DataFlo
Kourier Integrator Classic can help you restore the value of your DataFlo ERP application through business-to-business connectivity and best-in-class product integration. Many companies are implementing stand-alone software applications to improve specific areas of the business. With Kourier Integrator Classic these applications can function as though they were an integral part of your enterprise application, ensuring data consistency while eliminating costly and redundant data entry. Kourier Integrator Classic was written specifically for DataFlo and the UniData/UniVerse (U2) extended relational databases (from Rocket Software), and allows your DataFlo application to connect and exchange data with virtually any computer in the world.
Before you spend a fortune implementing a new enterprise application with the latest and greatest technology, let us show you how you can breathe new life into DataFlo for a fraction of the cost.

SQL Server Integration
For seamless integration between UniData/UniVerse and Microsoft's SQL Server database
use SQL Accelerator
, a companion product for Kourier Integrator. Ideal for application integration or building a full-blown data warehouse, SQL Accelerator is the key component for connecting MultiValue and MS SQL Server databases because it automatically generates the SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) or Data Transformation Services (DTS) packages that enable the seamless integration between the two databases.

Example of data integration process using Kourier Integrator for U2 and SQL Accelerator
The maintenance-free packages follow Microsoft best practices and include everything to update the database which includes: automatically mapping U2 dictionaries to SQL Server columns, insert-update-delete logic, managing database rule validation and exception handling, sending e-mail notifications, and more.
Near real-time SQL database updates can be attained using Kourier Integrator’s and SQL Accelerator’s “Net Change” technology and scheduling agents, which monitor changes to the MultiValue database and then optimize SQL Server database updates to provide high performance and scalability with guaranteed data delivery.
The integration model used by Kourier Integrator and SQL Accelerator has successfully moved millions and millions of DataFlo transactions and it has proven to be a very reliable and effective integration method. There are many other advantages to this method compared to a stand-alone MultiValue data warehouse or direct MultiValue database connect model (e.g., ODBC):
- Flexibility and Extensibility
- Independent Operation
