Access to corporate data used to be difficult. Businesses could either accept a limited number of queries and reports provided by their system developers or spend significant amounts of time and money creating custom reports and queries. What these businesses needed was a solution that would give their employees the ability to make their own reports and queries using the Windows productivity programs they already know, such as Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel, and Crystal Reports.
By providing an industry-standard application program interface (API) between Windows applications and BASIS databases, the BASIS ODBC/JDBC Driver gives users transparent access to corporate data. Utilizing a wide variety of ODBC/JDBC-aware tools such as spreadsheets, graphics programs and Web browsers, end users can make the best use of this valuable data.
