We are proud to offer Universal ODBC – our new connection method that allows users to connect to and interact with any current or future ODBC data source in the universe.  

Nexus has always been able to interact with over 25 major data sources natively, but not brand-new data sources.  With Universal ODBC, users can now connect to any data source, display the database layout in our Unified Systems Tree, execute SQL, and interact with result sets in exactly the same way they can from any of our native connection methods.  All that is needed is an ODBC driver.
