Modernizing Your Data Connectivity

Modernizing Your Data Connectivity

March 07, 2016 0 Comments

These days data is stored in legacy systems, a variety of cloud-based applications, and data lakes—so you need a new approach to access your valuable business intelligence.

How to Easily Connect to All Your Data

Salesforce, Marketo, Hadoop—the list of data sources goes on and on. With this wide array of choices, getting a unified view across all of them and connecting to them securely is a challenge. 10 years ago, data was dubbed “the new oil,” and it is now the currency of doing business.

Gartner research forecast that as of last year, there are 4.9 billion connected IoT devices. There’s no question that proper data mining and analysis leads to a measurable ROI. However, getting to the point where you are comfortable with integrating data sources and analyzing all of them is not easy.

How to Meet Today’s Complex Data Integration Challenges

While integrating all of your data sources and analyzing them by yourself isn’t impossible, having a partner to help can make the process easier and faster. Progress DataDirect disrupts integration challenges through the implementation/utilization of standards like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET and OData. We provide omni-channel connectivity that solves this problem in the present and the future by connecting real-time to multiple sources. 

You need a unified view across multiple data sources, connecting directly to the data securely and easily through any firewall.
