The Data Environment uses ADO. But to answer your question, the only reason you would need the Data Environment (and then only temporarily) is if you are using Data Reports.  Otherwise, refrain from using it.  It is more trouble than it is worth.

Thats what I was thinking. I have an application that I am now supporting and modifying that has over 25,000 lines of code.  It is using a data environment and no data reports. It also has one command in the data environment and the rest of the stored procedures are on the sql server.  

I am going to convert it . Just wanted confirmation. Thanks
