As an OpenEdge RDBMS customer, you have the right to download SQL Client Access Product that contains the ODBC/JDBC drivers to connect to the SQL engine of the OpenEdge RDBMS at no additional cost!
DataDirect provides a branded driver for the Progress database. The ODBC and JDBC drivers are free for any OpenEdge end-user with licenses under active maintenance.

Please note: If you are an existing licensed Progress OpenEdge RDBMS customer and you are under active maintenance with Progress, you are likely already licensed for the ODBC and JDBC drivers.

Besides DataDirect Progress also offers another solution to distribute your OpenEdge data. Progress OpenEdge Pro2 is a data replication solution that provides easy access to data from your OpenEdge applications. The OpenEdge Pro2 data replication solution eliminates connectivity restrictions without compromising the transactional database or interfering with routine business activities.
Here are some of the key features and benefits in Pro2:
DataDirect enables connectivity to any existing data source, on premise or in the cloud. Pro2 is a solution for proactive replication that replicates data from an OpenEdge database to another OpenEdge, Microsoft SQL or Oracle database.
Pro2 has a push mechanism that proactively pushes changes from the source data to the target data source. DataDirect on the other hand must be triggered and have a pull mechanism, providing access to data sources.
To access the vital data that exists inside OpenEdge applications, Progress DataDirect offers connectors that are quick, secure, and simple to use. This provides high availability through workload distribution and application failover, as well as broad data type compatibility to enable full functionality.
