DataDirect Virtual Partner Summit 2019

About

The modern era of cloud, analytics-first organizations introduces new data connectivity challenges for ISVs. They include SaaS data silo explosion, the abstraction of data behind proprietary APIs and network complications while providing access to on-premises data. At Progress, we innovate relentlessly so that you, our partners, have maximum advantage in this ever-changing landscape. This year, we are launching a Virtual Partner Summit to share our innovation and success stories with you.

Join us for this three-hour exclusive virtual event. Handpick your agenda, dial-in from your desk and interact with data connectivity experts and practitioners. Here’s just a taste of what you can expect.

Anatomy of a SaaS Connector

Did you know there are 15000+ SaaS companies listed on AngelList today? The average enterprise-level company uses 26 SaaS apps at an organizational level. This equates to 26 data silos. While your customers demand a seamless experience with their SaaS apps, building a SaaS connector can be daunting. In this session, experts from the DataDirect Engineering team will walk you through the various components of a robust SaaS connector focusing on performance tuning, security, proxies, APIs and debugging.

Corticon

Connect to Any REST Data Source Without Any Coding

The number of REST APIs continues to explode due to SaaS, Cloud, Microservices, Web, and Mobile. Applications must integrate with all REST sources in order to deliver a seamless experience for end-users. But, developing such connectors in-house is not scalable as every REST API is different. In this session, James Arsenault, Director of Software Engineering for Progress Corticon, will narrate how Corticon leverages our latest product Autonomous REST Connector to quickly and easily connect to SaaS, customers’ proprietary REST data sources with zero coding.
