SQL Server Data Access Components
SQL Server Data Access Components (SDAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to SQL Server from Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and Free Pascal) for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms. SDAC-based applications connect to SQL Server directly through OLE DB, which is a native SQL Server interface. SDAC is designed to help programmers develop faster and cleaner SQL Server database applications.
SDAC, a high-performance and feature-rich SQL Server connectivity solution, is a complete replacement for standard SQL Server connectivity solutions and presents an efficient native alternative to the Borland Database Engine (BDE) and standard dbExpress driver for access to SQL Server.
Native Connectivity to SQL Server
SDAC-based DB applications are easy to deploy, do not require installation of other data provider layers (such as BDE and ODBC), and that's why they can work faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity solutions. Moreover, SDAC provides working with SQL Server not only through OLE DB, but through SQL Native Client as well.
Wide Coverage of SQL Server Features
SDAC supports a wide range of SQL Server specific features, such as Transparent Application Failover, Notification, Queing and reliable messaging, SQL Server Compact Edition, User-defined Types (including HierarchyID, Geography, Geometry), Table-Valued Parameters, Filestream, and others.
Developing in Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus for Windows
SDAC is a cross-IDE solution for developing applications for Windows: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and FPC) for both x86 and x64 platforms. SDAC also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance native applications for Windows.
High Development Productivity with SDAC
We provide various GUI tools that will increase your productivity: dbMonitor allows monitoring activity of your DB applications, Dataset Manager simplifies DataSet and DB controls tweaking, and others.
We have developed an ERP system for a wet glue label printer company. The 280 users are using the application in a 7*24 hour production. With SDAC we have implemented fast performing client applications, production systems which are easy to install and maintain. Since The software is over 2 million lines of code the use of the right dataset componentset is critical. We think using Devart SDAC is for us the best choice, because no additional drivers need to be installed, it performs well even on the older machines and the quality is excellent.

All our components and libraries are designed to help you write high-performance, lightweight data access layers, therefore they use advanced data access algorithms and techniques of optimization.
SQL Server 2012\2008 R2\2008\2005 (including Express edition), SQL Server 2000 (including MSDE), SQL Server 7, SQL Server Compact 4.0\3.5\3.1, SQL Azure
SDAC doesn't limit your choice of the development platform. Now you can develop for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms with Delphi, Lazarus (and FPC).
Data Type Mapping
If you want to make custom correspondence between SQL Server and Delphi data types, you can use a simple and flexible Data Type Mapping engine provided by SDAC.
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio XE7, Delphi XE7, C++Builder XE7, Lazarus (and FPC). It is also compatible with the previous IDE versions since Delphi 6 and C++Builder 6.
Now you can develop not only VCL-based applications in Delphi and LCL-based ones in Lazarus, but also use the newest FireMonkey application development platform.
