The ODBC Error: How to Make it Less Frequent and Easier to Handle
In today's enterprise ODBC data architectures, an ODBC error can mean costly service interruption or corrupted data. By upgrading your data connectivity technology to Platinum ODBC from Progress DataDirect, you can reduce ODBC error occurrence while also benefiting from more consistent error handling and better technical support.
Reduce ODBC Error Occurrence with the Industry's Most Reliable ODBC Driver
Progress DataDirect has specialized in standards-based data connectivity products for 20 years, and that long-running experience shows in the superior reliability of our ODBC drivers. To ensure that our drivers deliver consistent high performance and robust ODBC error handling, we subject them to the most demanding testing suites in the industry.
Spanning millions of test cases, the DataDirect quality assurance process tests our drivers under every major deployment scenario:
- All major operating systems and chipset architectures
- All major databases and database versions
- All major application development frameworks
- Virtualized and non-virtualized environments
The result is data connectivity products so rock-solid reliable that 96 of the Fortune 100 companies use DataDirect solutions in their mission-critical data architectures.
The same ODBC error-minimizing reliability found in our drivers also marks our ODBC Driver Manager for Unix/Linux, the most widely used in the industry.
Consistent ODBC Error Handling
DataDirect ODBC drivers map database specific errors to ANSI standard messages, allowing for consistent ODBC error processing regardless of the type of database being accessed. This consistency in ODBC error handling enables application interoperability across different databases – interoperability you won't get from drivers that DB vendors bundle with their DBs, such as the ODBC driver Oracle distributes or the ODBC driver Sybase provides with its version 15.
When you do find yourself vexed by a database connectivity error, conversion error, or other ODBC error type, DataDirect's award-winning technical support staff is there with more data middleware expertise than any other provider. Along with our extensive online knowledgebase, we offer 24x7 support by email, web, or phone.
