Progress DataDirect is pleased to announce the addition of the Stanford Graduate School of Business to our customer base. The school, like most universities, maintains connections with its alumni community for numerous reasons, a benefit to both the university and the alumni. To stay in touch, Stanford utilizes Salesforce.com as a contact management tool. DataDirect’s Connect XE for ODBC drivers provide the school with the real-time connectivity to Salesforce.com that it needs to manage its growing alumni databases.
The drivers were a good fit for Stanford because they deliver out-of-box access, high performance and direct connectivity to Salesforce.com using Oracle Business Intelligence - all without creating additional complications or associated costs. Since Oracle lacks the ability to directly access Salesforce.com data without intermediary layers, Connect XE for ODBC drivers were a perfect fit to provide a cost-effective, clean connection to data stored in the Cloud. For more on how to configure OBI with Connect for ODBC for seamless integration with Salesforce data, read our recent blog post.
