The DataDirect Cloud service will be fully delivered in the second quarter of next year.
Progress Software is offering a beta program of its DataDirect Cloud connectivity service, which enables simplified SQL access to a spectrum of cloud-based data sources through a single standards-based interface.
Connectivity-as-a-service (CaaS) provides standards-based SQL access to cloud data without requiring customized interfaces or new libraries to learn. It executes the SQL query against the appropriate cloud data source, managing all of the complexity, application programming interfaces (API), and versioning itself so that the application does not have to.
Delivery of the connectivity management service is expected in the second quarter of 2013, with beta program access available for a limited number of participants beginning in January 2013.
"The success of cloud computing and SaaS based applications will depend in part on eliminating the ‘data silo' these applications create for their customers," says Michael Benedict, VP and business line manager, Progress DataDirect. "Our customers and partners have big ideas and we can help them to bring these ideas to light through greater access to data. With the DataDirect Cloud offering, we are delivering the final link to effectively integrate SaaS-based applications with the common tools most organizations have in house today. "
