Progress Expands Capabilities to Facilitate Data Integration for
BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
(NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced expanded capabilities for its leading DataDirect
Cloud® data integration solution with new support for the Open Data
Protocol (OData), a data access protocol for querying and updating data.
This new capability makes it simple to interact with data from a variety
of applications and programming languages so it's easier to consume by
both information workers and developers from any platform or device.
As businesses look to facilitate access to their wealth of data, OData
provides the ideal means to standardize the link between applications
and the broad spectrum of enterprise data sources. Because it is built
on standards such as REST and JSON, OData makes it easy for mobile,
enterprise mobile, SaaS, Web, and PaaS applications to access data from
sources such as Salesforce, DB2, Oracle and SQL Server.
Much like ODBC and JDBC have done to standardize data connectivity,
OData is quickly becoming the standard protocol of choice for mobile and
cloud apps in the increasingly agile enterprise. Combined with the speed
and simplicity of the DataDirect Cloud solution, businesses can quickly
realize results with real-time data analysis from any number of sources
on mobile and Web applications.
Additional data sources that can be accessed via the DataDirect Cloud
data integration solution include:
Apache Hadoop Hive
Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Oracle Service Cloud
Tony Fisher, VP, data collaboration and integration at Progress, said,
"Today's data savvy enterprises are realizing the value in making data
widely available internally and outside of their organizations. OData is
leading the way in standardizing how that data is made accessible and
will play a vital role in enabling businesses to increase the ROI from
their data with the DataDirect Cloud solution."
