I have been working with an increasing number of organizations that deployed a hosted multi-tenant database, and are now looking to expose data to individual tenants for reporting purposes. With the increased adoption of SaaS, many organizations are feeling pretty good about their data being hosted. However, challenges may be introduced when clients require SQL access to their data for reporting and analytics. The solution to avoid a potentially costly architectural overhaul is DataDirect OpenAccess. The most common data access use cases we see are in shared schema architectures. However, for the more isolated architectures, we are starting to see various security requirements from end users. And if you're interested in learning about the latest technologies in multi-tenant databases that solve this challenge, check out what's new in OpenEdge 11: Multi-tenancy Overview and Multi-tenancy Getting Started. How does DataDirect OpenAccess work? OpenAccess enables organizations to enforce tenant level security at the driver level without touching the hosted architecture. This is done by writing a couple lines of code within two methods that build a robust set of data access clients (ODBC, JDBC, .NET, OLEDB) to support applications such as Microsoft SQL Server BI Suite (SSIS, SSRS, SSAS), Informatica, DataStage, Ab Initio, SAP Business Objects, SAP Data Services, IBM Cognos, Microstrategy, OBIEE, Pentaho, JasperSoft, Actuate and many more.
