Frequently Asked SQL Server Driver Questions

Learn more about SQL Server drivers & connectors for data and analytics integration


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 SQL Server, 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 SQL Server driver offers full-featured SQL Server data connectivity. The CData SQL Server drivers support extensive SQL Server integration, providing access to all of the SQL Server 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 SQL Server 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.

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

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

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

SQL Server Analytics and SQL Server 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 SQL Server 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.

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