Frequently Asked Driver Questions

Learn more about drivers & connectors for data and analytics integration

The driver acts like a bridge that facilitates communication between various applications and, allowing the application to read data as if it were a relational database. The driver abstracts the complexities of APIs, authentication methods, and data types, making it simple for any application to connect to data in real-time via standard SQL queries.

Working with a Driver is different than connecting with through other means. API integrations require technical experience from a software developer or IT resources. Additionally, due to the constant evolution of APIs and services, once you build your integration you have to constantly maintain integration code moving forward.

By comparison, our Drivers offer codeless access to live data for both technical and non-technical users alike. Any user can install our drivers and begin working with live data from any client application. Because our drivers conform to standard data interfaces like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET etc. they offer a consistent, maintenance-free interface to data. We manage all of the complexities of integration within each driver and deploy updated drivers as systems evolve so your applications continue to run seamlessly.

If you need truly zero-maintenance integration, check out connectivity to via CData Connect Cloud. With Connect Cloud you can configure all of your data connectivity in one place and connect to from any of the available Cloud Drivers and Client Applications. Connectivity to is managed in the cloud, and you never have to worry about installing new drivers when is updated.

Many organizations draw attention to their library of connectors. After all, data connectivity is a core capability needed for applications to maximize their business value. However, it is essential to understand exactly what you are getting when evaluating connectivity. Some vendors are happy to offer connectors that implement basic proof-of-concept level connectivity. These connectors may highlight the possibilities of working with, but often only provide a fraction of capability. Finding real value from these connectors usually requires additional IT or development resources.

Unlike these POC-quality connectors, every CData driver offers full-featured data connectivity. The CData drivers support extensive integration, providing access to all of the data and meta-data needed by enterprise integration or analytics projects. Each driver contains a powerful embedded SQL engine that offers applications easy and high-performance access to all data. In addition, our drivers offer robust authentication and security capabilities, allowing users to connect securely across a wide range of enterprise configurations. Compare drivers and connectors to read more about some of the benefits of CData's driver connectivity.

With our drivers and connectors, every data source is essentially SQL-based. The CData driver contains a full SQL-92 compliant engine that translates standard SQL queries into API calls dynamically. Queries are parsed and optimized for each data source, pushing down as much of the request to as possible. Any logic that can not be pushed to is handled transparently client-side by the driver/connector engine. Ultimately, this means that looks and acts exactly like a database to any client application or tool. Users can integrate live connectivity with ANY software solution that can talk to a standard database.

The drivers and connectors offer comprehensive access to data. Our driver exposes static and dynamic data and metadata, providing universal access to data for any enterprise analytics or data mangement use. To explore the driver data model, please review the edition-specific driver documentation.

Using the CData drivers and connectors, can be easily integrated with almost any application. Any software or technology that can integrate with a database or connect with standards-based drivers like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, etc., can use our drivers for live data connectivity. Explore some of the more popular data integrations online.

Additionally, since supported by CData Connect Cloud, we enable all kinds of new cloud integrations. Analytics and Cloud BI integration is universally supported for BI and data science. In addition, CData provides native client connectors for popular analytics applications like Power BI, Tableau, and Excel that simplify data integration. Additionally, native Python connectors are widely available for data science and data engineering projects that integrate seamlessly with popular tools like Pandas, SQLAlchemy, Dash, and Petl. data integration is typically enabled with CData Sync, a robust any-to-any data pipeline solution that is easy to set up, runs everywhere, and offers comprehensive enterprise-class features for data engineering. CData Sync makes it easy to replicate data any database or data warehouse, and maintain parity between systems with automated incremental replication. In addition, our drivers and connectors can be easily embedded into a wide range of data integration tools to augment existing solutions.

Absolutely. The best way to integrate with Excel is by using the CData Connect Cloud Excel Add-In. The Excel Add-In provides easy integration directly from Microsoft Excel Desktop, Mac, or Web (Excel 365). Simply configure your connection to from the easy-to-use cloud interface, and access just like you would another native Excel data source.
