We have used nearly every CRM out there. but Salesforce.com is the most popular amongst our F100 clients.
We also do a lot of data queries accessing different SQL servers. We needed an OBDC driver that was easy to use, easy to connect, and fast.

While dotConnect met two of the criteria very well, it's not fast, although it could be due to the other technologies involved in data queries: volume, FWs, etc.
  • Easy to use, client report-friendly
  • Easy integration when accessing multiple SQL servers on the client side
  • Pulls/connects easily from any application
  • Can be slow which may be more due to the many FW issues involved when accessing multiple SQL servers
  • While it was easy for us to use, a few of our client-side Database teams wanted something more robust
Most appropriate when running queries from the client side, as the installation is rather straightforward and reporting is quite transparent, clear, and supportive of decision-making. We have known some extremely seasoned data researchers who had found dotConnect not as sophisticated as they would have liked.
