RESTify your SQL, NoSQL, Big Data databases

Easily expose an OData (Standard REST API) end-point from any database to make it accessible from modern applications such as Salesforce, Tableau, Web or Mobile applications or PowerPivot for Excel.

REST API has become become critical for network-based API access from web, mobile, SaaS and other modern apps.  As financial services companies continue to adopt modern applications, their success lies in their ability to truly democratize their enterprise data that resides on relational, NoSQL or a Big Data database. RESTification is the solution! Once you restify your DB, this data becomes accessible from any .NET, Java, C++, Javascript, Python, Objective C, iOS and other similar clients.

OData is an ISO standard for building and consuming REST APIs. Progress DataDirect offers Hybrid Connectivity Services that can help you instantly produce OData (REST API) from any of your relational, NoSQL or Big Data sources. We are a member of the OData technical committee and we can clearly help you understand how the financial services industry can benefit from OData and our connectivity services.

Scott Holden

VP of Salesforce1 Platform, Salesforce

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

We had to provide customers with the choice to use our on-premise solution or access it in the cloud. We already had some experience with Progress® DataDirect® ODBC connectors, so when we found out Progress also offered cloud connectors, that’s where we started. Progress DataDirect was essential for positioning our solution in the cloud. Not resolving the connectivity issue would have been a show stopper.
