CONNECTIVITY PORTFOLIO | Connect MSSQL
MSSQL is the protocol used to connect to Microsoft’s SQL Server.
Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. As a database server, it is a software product with the primary function of storing and retrieving data as requested by other software applications, which may run either on the same computer or on another computer across a network.
The Connectware MSSQL protocol enables reading from or writing to a database on the database server. With the Connectware MSSQL protocol, it is possible to establish connections to all network reachable databases – no matter whether they are in the cloud or on-premises.
Data can be read with the help of predefined queries. The queries are highly flexible to use when combined with variables that act as placeholders and are replaced at runtime. By displaying the requested data in JSON format, the data can be conveniently processed and easily transferred to other systems.
While read accesses take place at defined points in time or in a certain interval, write accesses are carried out immediately. As with reading access, writing to a database is performed by specifying a query which will then be enriched with payload at runtime.
Almost every use case relies on the ability to store and retrieve data – using the Connectware MSSQL protocol implementation, this can seamlessly be achieved without having to modify the database at all.
The leading factory data hub Connectware is suitable for the first steps of digitization up to holistic Smart Factory transformation. In addition to universal shop floor connectivity, Connectware creates a scalable data infrastructure for digital projects without limits. One single platform for all IIoT projects, independent of applications and vendors.
