Frequently Asked Salesforce Driver Questions

Learn more about Salesforce drivers & connectors for data and analytics integration


Salesforce is a well-known cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) platform that helps organizations manage customer interactions, sales processes, marketing campaigns, and service support. It provides analytics, customization, integration with other applications, and mobile access features. Salesforce is utilized by a vast array of industries and organizations of all sizes, ranging from small businesses to multinational corporations. Its cloud-based nature enables users to access their CRM data from any location with an internet connection, enhancing collaboration and adaptability.

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

Working with a Salesforce Driver is different than connecting with Salesforce through other means. Salesforce 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 Salesforce integration code moving forward.

By comparison, our Salesforce Drivers offer codeless access to live Salesforce data for both technical and non-technical users alike. Any user can install our drivers and begin working with live Salesforce 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 Salesforce data. We manage all of the complexities of Salesforce 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 Salesforce via CData Connect Cloud. With Connect Cloud you can configure all of your data connectivity in one place and connect to Salesforce from any of the available Cloud Drivers and Client Applications. Connectivity to Salesforce is managed in the cloud, and you never have to worry about installing new drivers when Salesforce 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 Salesforce, 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 Salesforce driver offers full-featured Salesforce data connectivity. The CData Salesforce drivers support extensive Salesforce integration, providing access to all of the Salesforce 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 Salesforce 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 Salesforce driver contains a full SQL-92 compliant engine that translates standard SQL queries into Salesforce API calls dynamically. Queries are parsed and optimized for each data source, pushing down as much of the request to Salesforce as possible. Any logic that can not be pushed to Salesforce is handled transparently client-side by the driver/connector engine. Ultimately, this means that Salesforce looks and acts exactly like a database to any client application or tool. Users can integrate live Salesforce connectivity with ANY software solution that can talk to a standard database.

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

Using the CData Salesforce drivers and connectors, Salesforce 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 Salesforce data connectivity. Explore some of the more popular Salesforce data integrations online.

Additionally, since Salesforce supported by CData Connect Cloud, we enable all kinds of new Salesforce cloud integrations.

Salesforce Analytics and Salesforce 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 Salesforce 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.

Salesforce 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 Salesforce data any database or data warehouse, and maintain parity between systems with automated incremental Salesforce replication. In addition, our Salesforce 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 Salesforce with Excel is by using the CData Connect Cloud Excel Add-In. The Salesforce Excel Add-In provides easy Salesforce integration directly from Microsoft Excel Desktop, Mac, or Web (Excel 365). Simply configure your connection to Salesforce from the easy-to-use cloud interface, and access Salesforce just like you would another native Excel data source.
