Objects for OLE (OO4O) integration in CardFocus Identity Card
Adoption of Oracle Objects for OLE (OO4O) results in
powerful Oracle connectivity for the CardFocus family of
identity management solutions
|March 7, 2005 – Sabadille Systems today announced that the adoption of Oracle Objects for OLE (OO4O) for use in their CardFocus software suite for identity card design and production is now complete, providing CardFocus users with higher performance connectivity to data stored in Oracle databases.
Oracle is one of the most widely used relational databases. Oracle Objects for OLE (OO4O) is an Oracle middleware that allows native access to Oracle from client applications using the Microsoft Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) standard.
Computer Point, a leading ICT solutions provider in the African Great Lakes Region, deployed CardFocus with OO4O in the region’s leading education institution
University, where a major education ERP was deployed with Oracle Based Integrated Tertiary
Software, the first project of its kind in the region.
“Like at Makerere University, we provide our clients, many of whom have existing Oracle databases, with solutions based on CardFocus and Fargo DTC500 Series card printers to run their identity card programs. Since most of these Oracle databases are very large, we need very high performance connectivity”, said Nicholas Rwendeire of Computer Point Limited. “CardFocus with OO4O has enabled us to triple our production capacity coupled with immense positive support in rolling out this service to the African Great Lakes Region. This solution brings unparalleled experience in service leverage to our Education, Financial and Business verticals for niche markets where integration with Oracle is key.”
Bannerbridge supplied CardFocus Premium plus Network Clients, coupled with Fargo’s DTC515-LC ID card printers for Computer Point’s project,” added David Holyfield, Technical Director of Bannerbridge PLC in the UK. “The CardFocus ID card software together with Oracle Objects for OLE and Fargo’s DTC printers is a perfect solution for the client.”
The CardFocus family of products, produced by Sabadille Systems, offers a comprehensive range of photo identity and visitor management software solutions that are powerful, yet simple to learn and loaded with useful features. While providing excellent value in software, CardFocus is so flexible that it improves the issuance and management of advanced photo identity cards for virtually any size and kind of organization.
“CardFocus is used in conjunction with many different database software systems, such as Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL. The Open DataBase Connectivity (ODBC) tool in CardFocus is the most commonly used means of connecting to databases”, added John Slattery, managing director of Sabadille Systems. “However, performance-wise OO4O is better than ODBC for accessing Oracle databases and we are very pleased to have adopted OO4O.”
