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.

What to think about while flying through the clouds

  • What are the challenge of accessing SaaS data in the cloud?
  • Where are the business systems and end users that should be consuming SaaS data through standard data access interfaces, ODBC and JDBC
  • Observe the amazing technology that enables seamless SQL access to SaaS data
