Progress Introduces Day One Support for High-Performance Big Data Connectivity
August 3, 2016 News


Progress (NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced that its Progress® DataDirect® suite of data connectivity tools now provides Day One Support for disruptive big data technologies with frequent release cycles, including Hadoop Hive, Spark SQL, MongoDB and more. With this strategy – the first of its kind for any data connectivity provider – Progress DataDirect on-premises ODBC and JDBC drivers will support any new versions of supported data sources.

The Progress DataDirect suite of data connectivity tools offers a unique data connectivity solution for businesses needing to better manage and integrate data across relational, big data and cloud data sources. It provides proven, high-performance connectivity despite demanding data migration, integration and management scenarios.

Software companies struggle to access big data across all customer environments because it’s impossible to continuously certify and manage hundreds of big data components and versions that change monthly, in many cases. With Progress DataDirect Day One Support, those organizations get “big data insurance” with a dedicated technology partner in Progress to ensure all of their customers are successful with big data projects.

“Our partnership with Progress has allowed us to stay on the bleeding edge with all big data, SQL as well as NoSQL data sources, without incurring a lot of additional QA and engineering resources,” said Tom Tortolani, Head of Jaspersoft Product Management, TIBCO.
