Progress Enhances DataDirect Cloud with OData Connectivity

Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced expanded capabilities for its leading DataDirect Cloud® data integration solution with new support for the Open Data Protocol (OData), a data access protocol for querying and updating data. This new capability makes it simple to interact with data from a variety of applications and programming languages so it’s easier to consume by both information workers and developers from any platform or device.

As businesses look to facilitate access to their wealth of data, OData provides the ideal means to standardize the link between applications and the broad spectrum of enterprise data sources. Because it is built on standards such as REST and JSON, OData makes it easy for mobile, enterprise mobile, SaaS, Web, and PaaS applications to access data from sources such as Salesforce, DB2, Oracle and SQL Server.

Much like ODBC and JDBC have done to standardize data connectivity, OData is quickly becoming the standard protocol of choice for mobile and cloud apps in the increasingly agile enterprise. Combined with the speed and simplicity of the DataDirect Cloud solution, businesses can quickly realize results with real-time data analysis from any number of sources on mobile and Web applications.

Additional data sources that can be accessed via the DataDirect Cloud data integration solution include:

  • MySQL Enterprise
  • PostgreSQL
  • Apache Hadoop Hive
  • Amazon RedShift
  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM
  • Oracle Service Cloud
  • SugarCRM
  • Google Analytics

Executive Quote:

Tony Fisher, VP, data collaboration and integration at Progress, said, “Today’s data savvy enterprises are realizing the value in making data widely available internally and outside of their organizations. OData is leading the way in standardizing how that data is made accessible and will play a vital role in enabling businesses to increase the ROI from their data with the DataDirect Cloud solution.”

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
