From an Oracle Support perspective, the term ODAC stands for Oracle Database Access Components.  It contains a bundle of interfaces and technologies that enable you to connect from a Windows environment to an Oracle database.  For example, the following components can be obtained from an Oracle ODAC download:

Oracle Data Access Components (ODAC) for Windows

Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio
Oracle Data Provider for .NET
Oracle Providers for ASP.NET
Oracle Providers for ASP.NET
Oracle Database Extensions for .NET
Oracle Provider for OLE DB
Oracle Objects for OLE
Oracle Services for Microsoft Transaction Server
Oracle ODBC Driver
Oracle SQL*Plus
Oracle Instant Client

From an 3rd-Party perspective, the vendor DevArt similarly has a product called Oracle Data Access Components for Delphi.  This product is specific to using the Delphi IDE with an Oracle database.  The product's interfaces have a direct mode that does not require Oracle Client software.  They are often called "wire protocol" drivers.  If using Oracle Data Access Components for Delphi, you will need to contact DevArt for support.  Should DevArt determine that there are any problems when interacting with an Oracle database, they should open an issue directly with Oracle.
