Empower Your Customers’ BI and Analytics Efforts

Advanced BI and analytics efforts require access to data spread across different sources, including relational, data warehouses, cloud, SaaS, big data, NoSQL and many REST endpoints. Give your customers the flexibility they need to connect to any data source with an exhaustive and ever-growing number of data source connectors across ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET and OData.

Embed Our Connectors Into Your Data Access Layer

Applications can no longer function as islands. That’s especially the case for BI and analytics—regardless of where your customers store their data, modern BI and analytics apps must be able to pull it. DataDirect disrupts the disruption, helping your customers connect their favorite BI tools to different data sources and REST endpoints.

Application Vendors
  • 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

  • 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 on serving your customers, let us take care of the rest.
  • Get unlimited support
    We support you so you can support your customers. Make sure your POC is a success with 24/7 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.

Ken Miller

Product Director, Panintelligence Ltd

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.
