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.

SaaS prezi tool for SQL Access

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
