Direct Connection

Our connectivity solution enables various ODBC-aware applications to establish a direct connection to Oracle Server and Oracle Cloud via TCP/IP to eliminate the need for Oracle Client. Direct connection increases the speed of data transmission between an external application and Oracle, which is crucial for data analysis in real time. It also streamlines the deployment process, since there is no need to distribute any additional client software with the driver. You can also connect to Oracle using the native Oracle client library.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the ODBC Driver for Oracle?

The ODBC Driver for Oracle is a tool that serves as an interface between an external program or a programming language and an ODBC data source. The driver uses the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) application programming interface to access data in SQL and NoSQL database management systems using SQL as the query language. The ODBC driver processes ODBC function calls, sends SQL statements to the data source, and returns results to the application.

How do I install the ODBC Driver for Oracle on Windows 10?

It’s recommended to first delete an older version of the driver if you have one installed. To install the ODBC Driver for Oracle on Windows 10:

How do I use ODBC?

Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) is an industry-standard application programming interface for database access. The ODBC Driver for Oracle uses the ODBC interface to access data in database management systems. It allows an ODBC-compliant application to gain access to one or more data sources. ODBC drivers work under the control of an ODBC driver manager, which is a library that manages communication between the ODBC-aware application and ODBC drivers.
