From recent consulting projects, I'm hearing from both IT and business users interested in OData production from on-premise business systems. This "self service" need is in contrast to my last article on OData production using the Entity Framework for .NET developers.
The demand is partly due to mobile application development, along with the growing OData ecosystem where we're seeing adoption from the likes of Progress Software, Microsoft, IBM, SAP, Tableau Software, Apple, and Salesforce.
This is my first published blog contribution to odata.org.
