Data Connectivity For All Your Initiatives

In 2023, it’s no surprise that how an organization uses data is what sets it apart from its competition. Yet, as data volumes increase and more data becomes available from even more sources, many organizations are struggling to manage it all—including the ability to connect data efficiently. This is where Progress DataDirect can help. DataDirect offers a wide range of data connectivity solutions, including drivers and connectors for relational databases, cloud-based data sources, and big data platforms. These solutions allow businesses to easily connect to and extract data from these sources, regardless of the complexity of the data or if the data is in the cloud, on-premises, or elsewhere.

Once the data connection is made, DataDirect works seamlessly with your BI and/or analytics solution of choice. In fact, DataDirect connectors are customized to provide enhanced performance and functionality for both Power BI and Tableau, to name just a couple. Organizations today use DataDirect in Power BI to retrieve data from its original source in real-time and use .TDC files in Tableau for an improved connection experience—all of it making for an “easy to use” experience for our customers.

There are so many more ways to use DataDirect within your organization.
