Simba Technologies Releases SimbaEngine SDK 9.3 Platform Supporting ODBC 3.8; Data Scientists Everywhere Rejoice

Industry-Leading Driver Development Platform Is First With ODBC 3.8 Support; Features Customizable Functions, SQL Connectivity to All Data Types, and Asynchronous Execution

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) - Simba Technologies Inc., the enterprise leader in standards-based connectivity solutions for relational and multi-dimensional data, today launched version 9.3 of its SimbaEngine Software Development Kit, the best-in-class driver-development environment for enterprise data integration. The SimbaEngine SDK 9.3 enables developers to produce ODBC, JDBC, OLE DB or ADO.NET data connectivity to both SQL-enabled and non-SQL data stores.

"The SimbaEngine SDK lets us build connectivity in the cloud for our Qubole Data Services platform," says Qubole VP of Engineering Shrikanth Shankar. "Qubole developers have used the SimbaEngine SDK to build ODBC drivers that we can repurpose and extend across our Big-Data-as-a-Service architecture. The fact that Simba is the first to support ODBC 3.8 shows that Simba is the leader in the field."

"The most extensible ODBC driver SDK just got more extensible," says Simba Technologies CEO Amyn Rajan. "With its support for ODBC 3.8, custom data types, and custom functions, the SimbaEngine SDK 9.3 makes it easier for enterprise developers to open their data architectures to multiple data sources. Extending enterprise data architecture means no more 'one-off' driver builds and no more vendor lock-in. Simba and Microsoft partnered on ODBC more than two decades ago and we are really excited to now join Microsoft in leading the world to ODBC 3.8."

Simba Technologies' SimbaEngine SDK 9.3 is the platform for building ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, or OLE DB data connectors to SQL-enabled, NoSQL, or proprietary data sources. The SimbaEngine SDK 9.3 is a componentized, extensible framework that Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), Data Warehouse developers, and F5000 enterprise developers can use to quickly implement commercial-grade, scalable, easy-to-maintain data drivers, often in as few as five days.

"SimbaEngine SDK 9.3's support for custom data types frees you to implement the data type your application needs, today or tomorrow," notes Simba Technologies CTO George Chow. "And with added support for Debian and Ubuntu, you can deploy against a wider selection of clouds including Google Compute Engine, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon EC2."

In addition to its core functionality, the SimbaEngine SDK 9.3 delivers full ODBC 3.8 compatibility: The SimbaEngine SDK 9.3 is the first ODBC 3.8-compliant connectivity development environment, and includes support for ODBC 3.8 asynchronous execution and data-type extensibility.

"Asynchronous execution is an essential component of the ODBC 3.8 standard," continues Simba Technologies' Chow. "The SimbaEngine SDK 9.3 introduces asynchronous execution of ODBC functions at both the connection-level and the statement-level. Large enterprise applications using SimbaEngine SDK 9.3-built drivers just perform better, and our enterprise customers demand that responsiveness. Being first to employ ODBC 3.8 is indicative of Simba Technologies' commitment to innovation."

When it comes to driver development with the SimbaEngine SDK 9.3, Simba Technologies is one of its own best customers: Simba Technologies engineers use it to build connectors for Big Data, analytics, and data-integration industry leaders like Cloudera®, Databricks®, DataStax®, Google®, Hortonworks®, Informatica®, Intel®, MapR®, Microsoft®, Qubole®, SAP®, Salesforce.com®, Splunk®, Tableau®, Teradata®, and Zettaset®.
