The Efficient, Agile Way to Access Cloud Data
Enterprise use of cloud computing services and cloud data storage is growing rapidly. The growth is driven by the powerful attractions of the cloud service delivery model, including frictionless scalability and pay-for-use pricing. At the same time, the increased utilization of cloud based applications and cloud data presents challenges to enterprises in terms of integration and interoperability.
In many enterprise environments, multiple applications need to interface with multiple cloud data sources, each with its own proprietary API. Further complicating matters, enterprise applications that interface with cloud data often must also access on-premise databases. Enterprise data infrastructures that were already heterogeneous have grown even more variegated with the advent of cloud data.
