I recently presented the webinar "Interrogating Your Cloud Applications with Oracle?" to Oracle shops through the Independent Oracle User's Group (IOUG). This session was presented earlier in the year at Collaborate 12 and the audience went crazy over real-time SQL access to Salesforce CRM via ODBC and JDBC. This presentation also applies to standards based connectivity to additional SaaS sources such as Aprimo, Eloqua, SugarCRM, RightNow,Success Factors, Taleo, ADP. Intaact, Concur from the recently announced DataDirect Cloud.
Connect SQL Developer to Salesforce.com for direct real-time SQL-92 access from Oracle Servers running on Linux (or Windows, AIX, Solaris, HPUX) using Oracle Database Gateway for ODBC (dg4odbc).
Connect DB Visualizer via JDBC to view the schema and data in your SaaS application. This is a direct connection without a staging database.
Other standards based ODBC/JDBC Oracle applications include:
• Learn why Cloud application data is difficult to include in your existing reporting tools.
• Make your Cloud Applications data look like Oracle
• Get more value out of your Cloud tools
