Python database compatibility
Thanks Neil for your input . I am looking for opportunities to connect to
the Tandem DB ( enscribe) via using Payton programs to analyse the data
/patterns of the txns.
I am very new in Python world so don,t know how these can be achieved ! In
our setup , Tandem DB is not connected via any other 3rd party system
therefore don?t know if JDBC/ODBC works here or not.
But will go through the link you have given and see if there are any!!
