How will hybrid data access revitalize your cloud journey? Introducing Hybrid Data Pipeline, the industry’s first embeddable hybrid data access service.
55 percent of CIOs stated that their organizations would adopt a “cloud-first” strategy, according to data protection company Bitglass. With so much data still residing on systems behind a firewall, higher value cloud projects tend to require integration, which slows the time to market for cloud adoption. To solve this problem, Progress has released the industry’s first embeddable hybrid data access service, Progress DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline. This launch will change the way organizations think about cloud.
Organizations have stored and used data in on-premises systems for decades now from behind a firewall, and it’s growing in size with new big data initiatives. The company firewall creates a challenge when it comes to integrating that high value business data with today’s cloud infrastructure.
Intuit, for example, wanted to migrate to Salesforce, but they had used Siebel CRM for over 20 years. This made eliminating the heritage infrastructure infeasible. Instead, they made their Siebel data available as an OData feed, using Progress DataDirect Cloud (a hosted version of Hybrid Data Pipeline), which they could integrate with Salesforce. This saved countless hours for the Sales team, who could then access all their data from the cloud using a single Salesforce interface.
Solutions such as Intuit’s underscore the value of the Hybrid Data Pipeline. It enables standards-based solutions that avoid opening ports in your company’s firewall, yet still enables a flexible, secure connection with minimal coding and maximum impact. This allows companies to rest easy with the assurance that their business data residing in on-premises systems is safe and available on demand, without having to replicate it into the cloud. This is critical for cloud projects that need access to sensitive data in a world where cloud security is of paramount concern.
