ITTIA ODBC 4.1 solves user issues, improves interface and adds value
July 5, 2005 — Bellevue, WA — ITTIA is announcing the availability of ITTIA ODBC 4.1. This add-on product allows users to unlock the database via a custom ODBC driver, as well as enabling access and manipulation of data in applications created with db.* and Birdstep embedded databases and their predecessors. (These programs include: Raima Database Manager ™, RDM™, Velocis™, db.Vista ™, and RDM Embedded™.*)
ITTIA ODBC is a great add-on to enable utilization of industry ODBC standard tools such as Microsoft Access, Excel, Visual Basic, Crystal Reports or any other ODBC-enabled third-party programs. Since 2001, ITTIA ODBC has empowered customers across the globe to unlock the full potential of their data. This software makes it easy to create custom reports in popular third-party software such as Microsoft Access and Crystal Reports.
ITTIA customers have successfully utilized this product for a number of years, including: GlaxoSmithKline, a world leader in pharmaceuticals; VNU, the premiere industry market research company; Moody's, a trusted provider of business services in the US; JCPenney, one of the largest retail chain stores; and many other organizations.
A research staff person from GlaxoSmithKline said about ITTIA ODBC: “I liked the ease of installation and the speed at which I read the data. It was all very easy and meets our needs.”
Throughout the 1980s, the Raima* family of databases was embedded in thousands of products, from inventory control software to scientific applications. ITTIA ODBC is the best solution for using that information to generate reports, and for migrating data from legacy applications. ITTIA’s customers include governments, small businesses, nonprofit organizations, Fortune 500 and Global 500 companies.
ITTIA extends the same world-class support to ITTIA ODBC users as they offer to Club ITTIA members. Often, developers of applications using Raima* databases customized the database source code in ways that affect ITTIA ODBC. ITTIA works closely with their customers to make sure ITTIA ODBC works properly for them. This has even included creating custom versions of ITTIA ODBC when necessary.
ITTIA ODBC is just one part of ITTIA’s rapidly growing comprehensive database solution. db.* is a small-footprint, fast, free and open-source embedded database. The unusual technical model of db.* (a combination network- and relational-model database) allows developers to create highly customized database structures that exactly fit their needs. db.* has no runtime or development costs.
