Get Secure SQL Access to your Financial APIs

Connect to your data access layer through the centralized access control, identity management, data lineage and financial business logic from external BI tools through compatible SQL based clients- ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, or SSIS.

As Financial Services companies adopt the latest technologies, many complex APIs are created - internal, customer, partner, enterprise, REST, SOAP, XML, JSON, CTree, etc. The long-term success of these financial companies is determined by their ability to integrate this data into core Business Analytics tools. DataDirect OpenAccess SDK allows you to be at the forefront of this analytics wave, by allowing you to quickly deploy SQL clients on top of your API layer.

DataDirect OpenAccess SDK is the industry’s leading custom driver development kit that enables custom drivers for any data source to be developed within weeks. The world's largest financial institutions and 100+ independent software vendors (ISVs) have used OpenAccess SDK to create custom drivers for their data sources. Whether your data source is a proprietary file format or a proprietary API, OpenAccess SDK can be used to make it SQL-accessible.

30 days Active (i.e. latest shipping version) and all Supported versions
Medium Risk
(CVSS 5-to-8 or industry equivalent)
180 days Active (i.e. latest shipping version)
Low Risk
(CVSS 0-to-5 or industry equivalent)
Next major release or best effort Active (i.e. latest shipping version)

* Priority is established based on the current version of the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), an open industry standard for assessing the severity of computer system security vulnerabilities. For additional information on this scoring system, refer to

We evaluated several offerings, but we chose Progress DataDirect OpenAccess because of DataDirect’s leadership and demonstrated success within the market. Progress is a developer-oriented products company. They have a long history of building software that developers use to build business applications. And part of that is DataDirect and the ability to connect data sources like VoltDB – a NewSQL database - to existing tooling. Leveraging Progress Software’s knowledge and experience has been very beneficial for VoltDB.

John Piekos

VP of Engineering, VoltDB

The DataDirect support is great. We were able to port some old driver code to the new DataDirect version within a few days, working with DataDirect via e-mails sent from engineer to engineer for clarification. Response time was frequently a matter of minutes.

Development PM, NetSuite

One of the things we liked about Progress DataDirect - other than that they are the most widely recognized supplier of ODBC, JDBC, and .NET drivers—is that the technology is standards-based. We could assure our customers that the client and server part of our solution does not radically depart from what database vendors could offer.
