Updated: 26 Feb 2021


In this article, we will walk through on how you can connect your Oracle Marketing Cloud (Eloqua) data to SAP Lumira Discovery using Progress DataDirect Eloqua JDBC driver. This tutorial assumes that you have SAP Lumira Discovery installed.   While this tutorial uses the Eloqua JDBC driver, these same steps would apply to any other DataDirect JDBC driver. 

In addition to JDBC, SAP Lumira Discovery also has the capability to connect to OData sources. Learn more about DataDirect's solution for OData data sources.
