IBM Informix SSIS Components

Powerful SSIS Source & Destination Components that allows you to easily connect SQL Server with IBM Informix through SSIS Workflows.

Use the IBM Informix Data Flow Components to synchronize with IBM Informix databases. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!



Easily push SQL Server data to IBM Informix using the CData SSIS Tasks for IBM Informix.

SQL Server databases are commonly used to store enterprise records. It is often necessary to move this data to other locations. The CData SSIS Task for IBM Informix allows you to easily transfer IBM Informix data. In this article you will export data from SQL Server to IBM Informix.

Add Source and Destination Components

To get started, add a new ADO.NET Source control and a new IBM Informix Destination control to the data flow task.

Configure the ADO.NET Source

Follow the steps below to specify properties required to connect to the SQL Server instance.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Source and add a new connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "Table or view" and select the table or view to export into IBM Informix.
  3. Close the ADO NET Source wizard and connect it to the destination component.

Create a New Connection Manager for IBM Informix

Follow the steps below to set required connection properties in the Connection Manager.

  1. Create a new connection manager: In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. Select CData Informix Connection Manager in the menu.
  3. Configure the connection properties.

    Set the following properties to connect to IBM Informix

    • Server: Set this to the name of the server running IBM Informix.
    • Port: Set this to the port the IBM Informix server is listening on.
    • Database: Set this to the name of the IBM Informix database.
    • User: Set this to the username of a user allowed to access the database.
    • Password: Set this to the password of a user allowed to access the database.

Configure the IBM Informix Destination

In the destination component Connection Manager, define mappings from the SQL Server source table into the IBM Informix destination table and the action you want to perform on the IBM Informix data. In this article, you will insert Books entities to IBM Informix.

  1. Double-click the IBM Informix destination to open the destination component editor.
  2. In the Connection Managers tab, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. In the Use a Table, menu, select Books. In the Action menu, select Insert.
  4. On the Column Mappings tab, configure the mappings from the input columns to the destination columns.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, data from your SQL table will be exported to the chosen table.
