Can anybody please let me know the difference between Teradata Control Framework and Teradata Global Control Framework?
Is GCFR just a new version of TCF with additional features? If yes, what new features?
Does GCFR work with TD 13?
GCFR is a new generation of the Control Framework. Earlier versions were macro based and only sold in the APJ region. The GCFR release is based on stored procedures for the processing patterns, has interfaces for Informatica, Datastage, ODI and SAP-BODS and is now positioned in TD accounts internationally.
The same core patterns as TCF were originally implemented in GCFR but these have been extended to include a mini-batch bulk load capability, ability to merge history into populated tables and reverse transaction processing (i.e. rollback data where a process has run in error). There is also support for intra-day processing, QueryBand and operational reporting views are provided as standard. All future enhancement will be to the GCFR code base, not TCF.
The latest release (1.2) has TD13 as the minimum database version and has been tested with all versions upto TD15.
