Devart is glad to present Skyvia Connect Beta — cloud service for connecting various data-oriented applications to databases and cloud applications via unified standard interface.
Skyvia Connect is a connectivity-as-a-service solution that allows you to expose your cloud and database data via the OData protocol. OData is a widely accepted open standard for data access over the Internet, supported in a number of applications and data-oriented technologies, such as BI tools, integration solutions, office suites, mobile applications, etc.
Skyvia Connect allows you to create OData endpoints for your cloud and relational data visually. After this OData consumers can consume exposed data via web, and Skyvia does all the background job - translates the OData requests to your endpoints to SQL or API calls and executes them, manages endpoint security, and logs all the OData requests to your data.
Create a RESTful OData service for your data in minutes without typing a line of code! Expose your tables via drag-n-drop, include or exclude fields visually, and Skyvia Connect will make the rest.
You don't need to give credentials to your database or cloud application accounts. Instead define user names and passwords to your OData endpoint on the Skyvia side. If this is not enough, you can also limit access to the allowed IPs and IP ranges.
Skyvia logs all connections to your Connect OData services with user accounts and IP addresses, all their requests and queries. Whenever necessary you can monitor which users access your data and what they do with them.
Please try our new functionality and leave feedback.
