Data connectivity is increasingly critical to companies’ ability to win, serve and retain their customers. In order to leverage that data, they must have access to quality information from various sources that provide impactful metrics from which they can build a plan of action. Data connectors are an essential component of data integration which enables enterprises to integrate various data sources and turn the information into actionable insights. With Progress DataDirect connectors, organizations can seamlessly connect any data source, both in the cloud and on-premises, to any application in a secure, reliable and high-performing way—arming them with the insights they need, regardless of infrastructure, to drive revenue and customer success.

“Businesses the world over are tasked with leveraging technology in new and unique ways in the face of disparate workforces, hybrid events and a future of work that is continuing to evolve. To be successful, every organization needs to leverage new sources of data that are highly distributed, diverse, and dynamic, which is difficult, at best,” said Stewart Bond, Director, Data Integration and Intelligence Software research at IDC. “Data access and integration has become a mandatory requirement, as organizations look to tap into new data types to better understand customers, business operations, and economic conditions, to compete effectively in a digital-first world.”
