I gave the prezi below on SQL access to SaaS at #PRGS13 in Boston and it was well received by Application Partners, Industry Analysts and Global Organizations in attendance.
The goal of the presentation at an appdev conference like #PRGS13 was two fold:
1. Illustrate how direct real-time SQL access instantly connects the business systems to SaaS data silos for data driven organizations.
2. Show ISVs how ODBC/JDBC access enables those data driven organizations to increase value from their SaaS applications. Salesforce platform is just one example.
