Your Application’s Unfair Advantage with Data Connectivity

Connect to any data using a single API across
relational, data warehouses, cloud, SaaS, big data, and NoSQL.


Get connected with the world’s most comprehensive portfolio of 200+ data source connectors across ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET and OData. We disrupt the disruption to your application’s data access layer from the exploding data landscape.

Benefits include reduced development cost, reduced complexity and risk, reduced support and maintenance burden, and improved customer experience.


Embed Our Connectors Into Your Data Access Layer

  • Launch in minutes, not months

    DataDirect connectors are lightweight and architected to connect directly to data without additional client libraries or dependencies.
  • Customize your data access layer

    Every last detail is fully customized so you can own the data access experience from end to end. For example, Microstrategy even branded error messages with our OEM package: "[MicroStrategy][ODBC Oracle Wire Protocol driver][Oracle] ORA-00942: table or view does not exist"
  • Respect your runtime

    DataDirect connectors are the fastest on the market and use less memory and fewer CPU cycles to protect your application’s core resources

How We Give Your Application an Unfair Advantage

  • Develop against open standards

    Avoid vendor lock-in by adopting open industry standards. DataDirect is the leader in data connectivity standards having co-founded the ODBC specification and serves on the JDBC Expert Group, OData Technical Committee and ANSI SQL Committee.
  • Connect to unlimited data with a single API

    Access the full breadth of data sources using a single, decoupled, code base and API for the data access layer protecting you from changes in metadata, error handling, and API or protocol revisions.
  • Get a single dedicated partner

    Deliver full support for the breadth of data sources in all shapes and sizes, with constant vigilance for the next security vulnerability (POODLE, FREAK, LOGJAM) in your data access layer. Focus your engineering resources on your core business.
  • Get unlimited support

    We live for your next big customer. Make sure your POC is a success with 24/7 partner support and access to expertise from our engineering teams, partnerships and leading technology companies such as Microsoft, Oracle, and IBM through our TSANet multi vendor support channel.

Using Progress DataDirect, it took us just 20 minutes to combine the data back together in Salesforce and suddenly the customer had visibility into 25% more opportunities. We were able to decrease our time to market by 5X using DataDirect versus building our own connector. And we are able to build a proof of concept within just hours to demonstrate the value to our customers. From the development side of our business this is very exciting

Our partnership with Progress has allowed us to stay on the bleeding edge with all the Big Data, SQL as well as NoSQL datasources, without incurring a lot of additional QA and engineering resources.

Tom Tortolani Head of Product Management, Tibco Jaspersoft

Our clients are constantly asking for new data source support, and we know that DataDirect will quickly make an ODBC driver available. The Salesforce and Hive drivers are only the most recent in a long series of such innovations. They position us very favorably against the competition.
