Embarcadero Partners with CData to Offer Enterprise Connectors


(a division of IDERA),
a leading provider of productivity tools for application development,
today announced a partnership with CData
to deliver a suite of Enterprise Connectors for application
developers. This collaboration helps developers deliver connected
solutions with a wider range of enterprise applications, such as
accounting, CRM, marketing automation, ERP, collaboration, NoSQL, big
data and more.

The result of a year-long collaboration effort, Enterprise Connectors
leverages Embarcadero RAD Studio FireDAC technology to reduce the
complexity of connecting to multiple data sources, and make CData's
adapters easily accessible to Delphi and C++ developers. The company
offers two different CData Enterprise Connector Packs, providing
customers easy integration to 80+ popular data sources such as
Salesforce, NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics, SAP, SugarCRM, MailChimp and

By incorporating standards-compliant interfaces like FireDAC for
real-time access to cloud or on-premises applications, Enterprise
Connectors provides developers a unified approach to seamlessly build
applications that connect to leading enterprise data. This simplifies
the developer's task in learning and keeping up with multiple evolving
APIs, while focusing on the key benefits of their connectivity.

"Developers use Embarcadero tools to build and maintain
business-critical applications across a wide range of industries. We
have learned through our many years of experience in the market that RAD
Studio developers are highly selective in their choices of third party
tools," said Amit Sharma, CEO of CData. "Our engineering teams have
worked diligently over the past year to deliver an exceptional framework
of FireDAC components for SaaS, NoSQL and big data integration, designed
to meet and exceed the demanding quality standards of the RAD Studio
community. We believe they will be very pleased with the results."

"CData has a proven track record in quality components that are used by
leading application platforms. With Enterprise Connectors, developers
can deliver connected solutions with a wider range of enterprise
applications faster and more easily than ever before," says Atanas
Popov, General Manager of Embarcadero. "This allows our customers to
derive exceptional value from the visual development environment and
cross-platform frameworks that we offer. The speed with which one could
build a robust app, for example for Salesforce automation, will be
greater than anything I have seen in the market today."

Enterprise Connectors will be seamlessly integrated with Delphi and
C++Builder Visual Component Library (VCL), FireMonkey (cross-platform UX
framework), and RAD Server (MEAP platform), through the FireDAC
framework. This will open numerous opportunities for scalable
single-source code, cross-platform applications. Easy deployment and
rapid access to Windows 10, Apple and Android stores will provide global

The Enterprise Connector Beta product will be available to Embarcadero
customers on update subscription initially (through the GetIt store). It
will be followed shortly by a Controlled Availability version, available
