In today’s tech world, your success is directly proportional to your ability to integrate with other technologies and make more informed decisions. Well, everyone seems to know that, so how do you differentiate? You differentiate yourself by choosing the smartest way to integrate technologies—using standards based drivers.
Can't find a driver for your application? You might be one of the following:
Why You Need a Custom Driver
- You work for a company that uses a unique data engine that you wish to integrate with other applications such as Tableau, MS Excel, Ateryx, etc.
- You have an amazing product that needs a standard interface to let other applications access your product
- You are a tech buff who just likes to code a custom driver (if that's you, feel free to reach out to me — we are always hiring !)
In any case, all you need is OpenAccess SDK , which allows you to develop a driver your choice: ODBC , JDBC , ADO.NET or OLEDB . With 99% of the code already provided, you only implement 12 functions as you write a driver of your choice in the language of your choice: C/C++, Java, .NET, C#, ABL or 4GL. We take special care to optimize the CRUD operations with the OpenAccess SQL engine to reduce coding and make your lives easier. We are ANSI SQL-92 compliant and we support all the major platforms including Windows, Linux, HP-UX, AIX, Solaris and more.
