In this blog, we outline how DataDirect Hybrid Connectivity Services—DataDirect Cloud & Hybrid Data Pipeline—help enterprises leverage disparate data.
The inevitable enterprise movement towards a hybrid environment has finally materialized due to the rise of cloud sources and necessity of on-premises data. Hybrid environments let you fully leverage both on-premises and cloud data sources. In order to do so, it is critical for your organization to be able to support connectivity across the entire hybrid architecture.
Progress DataDirect predicted the following connectivity problems that would arise due to hybrid infrastructure:
We launched DataDirect Cloud to solve these problems. DataDirect Cloud is our hybrid connectivity solution hosted by us on AWS. We also offer a self-hostable version of DataDirect Cloud called Hybrid Data Pipeline. Re-engineered from DataDirect Cloud, Hybrid Data Pipeline can be run wherever you like—on other public clouds, a private cloud or on-premises.
Our award-winning solution has enabled organizations to successfully migrate into a hybrid environment. Here are the top three Case Studies that will help you understand how enterprises benefit from our connectivity solution:
As BOARD International moved to the cloud, a major roadblock to customer adoption was on-premises connectivity. To solve this, BOARD leveraged DataDirect Cloud. Traditionally, BOARD customers would have had to connect to a VPN to get through the firewall. However, our patented on-premises connectivity gateway made it easy for customers to adopt BOARD’s cloud solution.
In addition to resolving connectivity issues, BOARD is now able to OEM the DataDirect Cloud drivers and expects 75 to 80 percent of its customers will migrate to the cloud over the next few years.
The major challenge for Chatham Financial was that different cloud providers require different APIs to move data in and out of the platform. In this case, they wanted a single secure, turnkey solution to connect to Salesforce and Marketo.
They turned to DataDirect Cloud's suite of connectors that securely connected these applications and respective data. Security is very important for such a financial institution and they were happy that we passed all their rigorous security tests. Today, Chatham Financial is able to access Salesforce and Marketo data while meeting the stringent security standards
As Intuit shifted to Salesforce, they faced the challenge of integrating legacy CRM data into Salesforce. Thanks to Salesforce Connect and DataDirect Cloud, Intuit was able to leverage the OData standard to integrate their legacy CRM data. How did they do this?
Intuit produces OData from their legacy database using DataDirect Cloud. This data is in turn consumed by Salesforce using Salesforce Connect. At the same time as this process, our on-premises connector gateway quickly and easily exposed this data in a firewall-friendly manner. Thanks to the combination of DataDirect Cloud and Salesforce Connect, Intuit can keep its data on-premises while still enabling its sales and marketing teams to gain on-demand access to their data.
The DataDirect Hybrid Connectivity solution was first launched, tested and proven through DataDirect Cloud. The same award-winning technology has been re-engineered to develop a more flexible Hybrid Data Pipeline that customers can run wherever and however they like.
Our technology has consistently solved major connectivity problems across all industries. You can learn more about them in our hybrid cloud solutions page. Or go ahead and get started today with a free trial.
