Using for 10 years and has been the most reliable data tier since BDE.

We have been able to contact support and gotten a night build change to access Oracle when they changed to allow an off site redundant server configuration.

Pros

The software has built in code to access database servers directly. For example, you can write a single EXE that can access an Oracle database WITHOUT Oracle intalled.
They have the code for OCI built in.
Yes, you can use OCI and OLE DB and ODBC and hit 20 other databases with the same code.
Of course you can access MsSql the same way.
What does this give you?? You can make an Android app that connects direct to a Mssql database over the internet. Maybe you will do REST services later, but quickly make an awesome app.

Cons

I don't like that they didn't give me a job offer.

Using UniDac makes writing multi-user database applications , across a range of databases, quick and easy without sacrificing performance or usability.

Pros

It is straightforward to use, reliable, and gives me access to every feature I need when writing database connected applications, large and small. It plays nice with the other 3rd party components we use such as DevExpress and Fast report etc, and it well documented.

Cons

Some of the dialogues can be a little clunky but the developer is very responsive.

UniDAC has consistently allowed us to integrate with light and heavy-duty database engines (from SQLite to MongoDB with most of our usage in the PostgreSQL area). It has greatly reduced the effort to market for our products while also saving money by not needing to purchase Delphi Enterprise, Professional is enough thanks to UniDAC.

Pros

Compatibility with both Delphi and Lazarus/FreePascal.
Super-easy to use installer that seems to 'just work' year after year.
Abstraction layer to allow easier swapping between back-end database engines.

Cons

It is called Universal Data Access Components due to the large number of providers which is both a good thing and a bad thing. The negative for our company is that we only use a few providers regularly so the cost can feel burdensome, most notably when the CRM connectors and such were added a few years back. The positive is that without the bundling, we likely wouldn't have tested out such connectors...

A very good product

Reviewed on 26/04/2022

Pros

Simple, easy to use and performant
A very good product for multi SGBDR access

Cons

More documentation about the impact of differents options with differents SGBDR.
For a non-specialist of a particular version of SGBR, it is quite difficult to choose the right option.
