SDK for Financial Services to control their data destiny | ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, ODATA

November 12, 2014 0 Comments

One of my favorite onsite meetings is with R&D teams at Financial Services shops for the following reasons:

  • Smart and talented R&D teams
  • Build and deliver highly sophisticated systems and operate similar to a software company
  • Do real work with real data
  • Adopt and experiment with the latest technologies

DataDirect Custom Connectivity for Financial Services R&D

I’ve learned a lot from meeting with finserv database R&D teams around data connectivity, and I want to give back to my new techie friends with DataDirect OpenAccess SDK. The most common thing I’m hearing is the challenge of consuming the latest disruptive technologies for developers since they don’t always play nicely with business systems, in a highly regulated vertical. We solve this with our commercial drivers in most cases (similar to MongoDB which we solved), but we want to enable your R&D teams to address every possible case.

Leave no data behind | Common custom data connectivity projects across financial services

  • SQL enable semantic data layers to query enterprise business logic from existing infrastructure such as IBM Cognos or Tableau.
  • Access data directly and in real-time from flat file compliance archives. This same architecture applies to any intermediary repository or data lake with real-time data connectivity requirements
  • Databases as a service in private clouds where DataDirect OpenAccess SDK is used to build a combination of the client connectivity and virtual layer over databases. It’s a very similar use case as to what NetSuite has done using the SDK for their public cloud application, except I’m going to take a wild guess you want private clouds.
  • Enterprise search integration to enrich intelligence from indexed customer data with dashboards used by financial reps.


Build a prototype today to open up new data opportunities

I recently built ODBC, JDBC, and ADO.NET connectivity to Apache Solr using DataDirect OpenAccess SDK in less than an hour; and have built drivers to proprietary flat files on layovers to the west coast.

Download a free trial of ODBCJDBC and ADO.NET OpenAccess SDK to build your own drivers, and we should already have legal evaluation agreements in place for evaluations where required. We even provide run-time installers and branding capabilities if you want to start distributing the software to end clients.

Tweet @SAsInSumit on what you're planning to build next

That was a little finserv humor, so call us at 1-800-876-3101 to speak under NDA. We should already have them in place at all the top shops.
