Progress Introduces Day One Support for High-Performance Big Data Connectivity

New Day One Support strategy enables Progress DataDirect data connectivity tools enterprise customers and ISVs to adopt fast-changing big data frameworks with speed, ease and reliability

BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced that its Progress® DataDirect® suite of data connectivity tools now provides Day One Support for disruptive big data technologies with frequent release cycles, including Hadoop Hive, Spark SQL, MongoDB and more. With this strategy - the first of its kind for any data connectivity provider - Progress DataDirect on-premises ODBC and JDBC drivers will support any new versions of supported data sources.

"Big data is one of the cornerstones of digital transformation, but in order for businesses to successfully transform into data-driven organizations, they need to be flexible and adaptive," said Dion Picco, General Manager, Data Connectivity & Integration, Progress. "As a worldwide leader in data connectivity, we're committed to helping our customers navigate this period of constant innovation and disruption, no matter what new data distribution or interface they're using, from day one. That way, if they experience an issue, we can help them address it immediately, so they can accelerate their initiatives, monetize big data sources and respond more quickly to business needs and competitive threats."

The Progress DataDirect suite of data connectivity tools offers a unique data connectivity solution for businesses needing to better manage and integrate data across relational, big data and cloud data sources. It provides proven, high-performance connectivity despite demanding data migration, integration and management scenarios.

Software companies struggle to access big data across all customer environments because it's impossible to continuously certify and manage hundreds of big data components and versions that change monthly, in many cases. With Progress DataDirect Day One Support, those organizations get "big data insurance" with a dedicated technology partner in Progress to ensure all of their customers are successful with big data projects.

"Our partnership with Progress has allowed us to stay on the bleeding edge with all big data, SQL as well as NoSQL data sources, without incurring a lot of additional QA and engineering resources," said Tom Tortolani, Head of Jaspersoft Product Management, TIBCO.

Progress offers DataDirect drivers for a variety of big data sources including MongoDB, SparkSQL, Impala, SAP HANA, Apache Cassandra and Apache Hive, as well as commercial distributions of Hive from Amazon, Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and Pivotal. This is on top of unmatched Progress DataDirect relational and SaaS application adapters that include: Salesforce Lightning Connect,,,, Hubspot, Marketo, Eloqua, Oracle Service Cloud, ServiceMax, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Progress® OpenEdge®, Progress® Rollbase® and many more.
