29 May Real-time SQL Access to Salesforce? – Yes. It’s possible
May has been a very busy month for us in EMEA. First, Bradley Wright hosted a Roundtable Session at Big Data Innovation Summit in London “Big Data Access: High-throughput Data Access to Data Sources Involving Hadoop Systems”, then, with two Salesforce Customer Company Tours, one in London and one in Paris, the rest of the month was all about Salesforce integration.
We had a lot of very interesting conversations about Salesforce integration from different point of views – the architects, the project managers and end users.
So, what’s it all about?
Progress DataDirect JDBC and ODBC drivers for Salesforce basically enable you real- time access to Salesforce data from any reporting, ETL or query tool – Cognos, Informatica PowerCenter, Pentaho, Tibco Spotfire, Tableau, SAP Business Objects Universe, SAS – you name it – even if you use MS Access or Excel PowerPivot as your BI tool for your self-service analytics. We bring standards-based connectivity to Cloud and make Salesforce.com look like any relational data source to your data integration software. We can even enable Oracle-based databases integration with Salesforce – just read about RightNow, Azure, Salesforce, Netsuite SQL integration across the Oracle enterprise, OBIEE and Oracle Database Gateway.
You can leverage the Salesforce bulk load API without making code changes to reduce costs.
DataDirect can help you simplify your architecture and integration for Force developed applications allowing you to reduce costs.
We admit, there is a lot going on. Do you have any questions? Feel free to contact us, or see us at our next stop in July in Munich.
