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