Multithreading support
Enables development, deployment, and use of multithreaded client applications.

Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Deferred Fetching of Blob Data
The SQLGetData() and SQLPutData() ODBC API implementations have been significantly enhanced to provide intelligent handling of BLOB data. This facilitates transferring parameter data in parts over the network between the Enterprise Edition (Multi-Tier) Generic Client and Database Agents. Once transferred, the fragmented column data is reassembled in its entirety within the Client and/or Agent parts of the Enterprise Edition (Multi-Tier) driver (depending on if this is an insert or retrieval). This feature applies to data types such as SQL_LONGVARCHAR, SQL_WLONGVARCHAR, SQL_LONGVARBINARY, BLOB, and CLOB.

Session Rules Book
Attibute-based Access Controls that apply to all ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, OLE DB connnections to a target database. Default attributes include username, machine name or network address, client application operating system, and administrator configurable domain. This functionality provides data access policies that enable control over read and write modes available to ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, or OLD DB connections as applications and service usage evolves. For example, transparently enabling read-only mode when an application is being used outside the office thereby thwarting hacks that might occur over WiFi connections. Or implications of different users operating the same application from a common device where each has different privileges.
