Progress Releases New Connectors for Integration within the DevOps Process

Progress, a provider of application development and digital experience technologies, is releasing a set of new data connectors to improve the integration of analytics and reporting within the DevOps process.

Complementing an expansive collection of pre-built, high-performing, standards-based data connectors, Progress has introduced connectors for TeamCity, GitHub, Aha!, and Jira.

With these new connectors, users can gain a more unified view of the DevOps process, enabling new levels of efficiency and performance, leading to improvement across the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

The new DevOps connectors deliver on the performance, reliability and security standards the DataDirect portfolio is known for, including:

  • Access to disparate data using SQL—No need to learn proprietary APIs or query languages. Every system is accessed the same way. The write-once, consume-anything model saves time and increases developer productivity.
  • High data throughput performance, including bulk data access—Ability to access data quickly resulting in decreased latency while data loads. No manual data workflows increase process and automation efficiencies. In the cloud, faster data processing means compute instances operate for a shorter period of time, decreasing the cost of AWS and Azure instances.
  • Security and support—Security includes update cadence, hotfix policies, support procedures and more.

“The number of applications being used across the DevOps process is going to continue to increase and our customers and partners rely on us to always deliver the tools and connectors needed for businesses to stay competitive,” said John Ainsworth, SVP, core products, Progress. “This is why we are the leader in data connectivity. We understand the impact that data, or a lack thereof, has on a business’s success and we enable our customers and partners to gain the insight they need to make informed decisions.”
