Warning: CData has deprecated the FireDAC Enterprise Connectors starting in July 2023. The software will remain in distribution and supported until June 2024. Their generic ODBC solution remains available. Another alternative is to create a custom client using RAD Studio REST Client Library.


Enterprise Connectors, powered by CData, leverages Embarcadero’s RAD Studio FireDAC technology to remove the complexity in connecting to multiple data sources.

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 of learning and keeping up with multiple evolving APIs while focusing on the key benefits of their connectivity.

The components allow you to integrate 80+ Enterprise applications such as Salesforce, NetSuite, Microsoft Dynamics, SAP, SugarCRM, MailChimp, and JIRA, simplifying connectivity into a standard model using SQL.

An Enterprise Connector (CData FireDAC Professional) 1-year subscription license is included as part of Delphi, C++Builder, and RAD Studio Enterprise and Architect edition purchases. Customers currently on subscription for Enterprise or Architect edition can also claim their license key for the Enterprise Connectors. For details, visit Enterprise Connectors
