Overview: Progress DataDirect Connect/Connect 64 for ODBC: The Industry Standard for ODBC Drivers

Progress DataDirect Connect, Connect XE and Connect64 for ODBC are the fastest, most comprehensive suite of ODBC drivers for all major databases—Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, DB2, Salesforce.com, Sybase, Sybase IQ, database.com, force.com, and Progress OpenEdge 11 MT. Our unique “wire protocol” design eliminates the need for database client libraries, which greatly simplifies installation and administration and dramatically improves performance. In fact, these clientless drivers even outperform applications that use the database’s native (proprietary) API for database access. Progress DataDirect ODBC drivers are the industry standard for ODBC drivers, providing the advanced functionality, performance, and reliability developers need to quickly deliver high-quality, database-independent applications.
