What's New in REST APIs for Your Database

What’s New in REST APIs for Your Database

Deliver OData-based REST APIs to Modernize your Enterprise Data

REST APIs have grown exponentially over the past decade thanks to the rise of SaaS applications and highly integrated microservices architectures. Organizations are adopting REST API strategies to better integrate data assets with modern consumers across desktop, web and mobile applications.

To simplify the process of building and consuming their REST APIs, many enterprises have increasingly adopted OData, an OASIS/ISO approved standard. In the wake of new data privacy laws such as GDPR, organizations are once again looking for powerful REST APIs to access their systems of record in real-time without duplicating or moving sensitive customer data from their enterprise databases.

Watch this on-demand webinar in which experts from Progress and Gartner discuss:

  • Why you should RESTify your database
  • What OData is and what’s new in the latest ISO-approved version
  • Different options for REST-enabling your databases

Plus —don't miss our quick demo of provisioning OData without code.

Deliver Secure SQL Access for Enterprise APIs

Companies typically build numerous internal applications and complex APIs for enterprise data access. These APIs are often engineered for application developers and based on protocols such as REST or SOAP with payloads in XML or JSON.

However, enterprise data teams need to access this data for analytics, which requires standard query capabilities and the ability to surface metadata. As enterprises adopt new analytical and data management tools, a SQL access layer for this data becomes imperative. Many industries such as financial services, healthcare and technology rely on Progress® DataDirect® OpenAccess™ SDK to build a custom ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET or OLE DB layer on top of their internal APIs and hosted multi-tenant databases.

Watch this on-demand webinar to learn about:

  • Use cases for providing SQL access to your enterprise data
  • How organizations provide SQL Access to its APIs
  • Pitfalls and best practices to building SQL access

Plus—don’t miss our live demo using OpenAccess SDK to provide SQL access for a REST API.
