Progress Unveils Autonomous REST Connector

Progress, a provider of application development and digital experience technologies, is launching Progress DataDirect Autonomous REST Connector, a data connectivity solution that, the company says, enables organizations to build enterprise-grade connectors for any application within minutes.

According to DatraDirect, with the new solution, organizations can access data from SQL-based applications, saving time and cost by minimizing the complexity of custom developing and maintaining integrations.

DataDirect says the key benefits of DataDirect Autonomous REST Connector will include:

  • Broad connectivity – DataDirect Autonomous REST Connector provides real-time, secure connectivity and integration, giving organizations immediate access to endless applications, data warehouses, data lakes and more.
  • Intelligent sampling and codeless configuration – Without custom coding, DataDirect Autonomous REST Connector can point to an API, OData endpoint or JSDO catalog and automatically create a configuration file that allows enterprises to immediately start working with the data. Once connected, the DataDirect Autonomous REST Connector solution allows customization of the configuration for enhanced optimization, performance, security, or meeting any internal architectural standards or needs.
  • Rapid development of API connections – DataDirect Autonomous REST Connector enables the fast development of API connections that can be seamlessly integrated into the organization’s portfolio.

“Progress DataDirect Autonomous REST Connector solves a long-standing challenge for enterprises and ISVs – the development time and resources required to custom build data connectors for the sheer volume of applications, data sources and BI platforms that support an IT ecosystem,” said John Ainsworth, SVP, core products, Progress. “With this new advancement, we empower companies to rapidly create the connectivity needed for real-time data visibility. We are excited by the widespread interest from our customers and partners.”
