 +Read on to learn where Omnidex is typically used ...
  
-===== How is Omnidex implemented? =====+=====  =====
  
-There are three basic steps to implementing Omnidex into your applications:+**[[intro:overview:where|Next]]**
  
-  - Tell Omnidex where to find your data. +{{page>:bottom_add&nofooter&noeditbtn}}
-  - Add Omnidex indexing to your data. +
-  - Connect to Omnidex and perform queries.+
  
-Omnidex applications are easy to prototype.  Omnidex will walk you through all of these steps using the Omnidex Administrator.  Once you have created your Omnidex-enhanced database, you can run queries and see the performance for yourself. 
- 
-As with all things, it is valuable to understand Omnidex more deeply before building a production application.  Omnidex has many powerful features.  Learning about these features will help you decide where you want to enhance your application. 
-===== How long has Omnidex been around? ===== 
- 
-Omnidex was introduced in 1981 during an era when companies were just beginning to use computers for their day-to-day operations.  During the 1980's, Omnidex provided indexing to the early database users in the Hewlett-Packard marketplace.  During the 1990's, Omnidex expanded to support databases across Windows, UNIX and the VMS operating systems.  Today, Omnidex uses standard interfaces to automatically optimize SQL queries across the major databases and operating systems.  Over nearly three decades, Omnidex has been used by over 4,000 customers in countries around the world. 
- 
-===== What is Omnidex Express? ===== 
- 
-Omnidex Express is the same as the full Omnidex product with a few exceptions.  Omnidex Express will only index the first 1 million rows in a table, and it does not support Omnidex Grid implementations.  Omnidex Express can be downloaded and used for free, and is is often used in small applications and in development.  Technical support for Omnidex Express is available on a per-incident basis, or by purchasing a support contract.
