I've been managing MS-SQL databases for a number of years for the company I work for. A few weeks ago they decided to purchase another company that uses an IBM Universe database for all of it's customer and order tracking.I've poked around through their database server and it looks like it's just a bunch of files stored in a big folder.
The problem is that I have no idea how to connect to the database to run queries for reporting and such. I know that the client side software the sales people use connects to the database using telnet. I don't think that running queries through telnet in command prompt would be very efficient though lol.
Does any one know of a good and preferrably free management studio I can use to connect to the Universe Database and how I would go about connecting to it once I get the software installed?
