 Progress Expands Capabilities to Facilitate Data Integration for Application

Business Wire

BEDFORD, Mass. -- July 29, 2014

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

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

  *MySQL Enterprise
  *Apache Hadoop Hive
  *Amazon RedShift
  *Microsoft Dynamics CRM
  *Oracle Service Cloud
  *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.”
