A Reporting solution can only report on what it can connect to!
Dream Report can connect to just about anything!

There are several forms of data, including Real-time, Alarm and Historical data structures.  A Real-time Data Source provides access to instantaneous data or data that is a response to a value query.  Alarm History is a connection to an Alarm or Event Log, that can be queried for a range of information.  Historical Data is typically provided by a database of some sort and can be queried for arrays of data.  In many cases, History data from specialized Historian products can be pre-filtered or pre-analyzed by the Historian.  Dream Report understands these varying data types, delivers connectivity to all of these data sources and will make use of them in the most powerful ways possible.

Drivers (connectors or interfaces to data sources) also fall into several categories.  There are industry standards for connectivity such as those of the OPC Foundation (OPC DA, OPC AE, OPC HDA), and MODBUS – a simple protocol that is quite pervasive in industry, or BACnet – a protocol that was specifically developed for the Building Automation industry.  There are a wide range of proprietary communication protocols, specialized to the various vendors in the automation marketplace.  There are also business standards such as ODBC, OLE-DB, and standard file formats like CSV or Microsoft Excel.  Dream Report offers connectivity to most products in industry through one or more of these interfaces.  There is usually more than one way to offer connectivity to the data sources you’ll want to report on.  All Drivers are included with Dream Report (however OEM versions of Dream Report, available from many different automation vendors, will vary).

Dream Report offers dozens of different interfaces and more are added with each new release.  Ocean Data Systems had developed a DDK (Driver Development Kit), streamlining the development of new drivers.
