Companies typically build numerous internal applications and complex APIs for enterprise data access. These APIs are often engineered for application developers and based on protocols such as REST or SOAP with payloads in XML or JSON.
However, enterprise data teams need to access this data for analytics, which requires standard query capabilities and the ability to surface metadata. As enterprises adopt new analytical and data management tools, a SQL access layer for this data becomes imperative. Many industries such as financial services, healthcare and technology rely on Progress® DataDirect® OpenAccess™ SDK to build a custom ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET or OLE DB layer on top of their internal APIs and hosted multi-tenant databases.
