Easy Data Connectivity From Any Application

Get connected to all of your data in 3 easy steps:


Create Your Connection

The CData Connect Cloud platform is designed for business. To get started, log into Connect Cloud and select one of the supported cloud applications, databases, data warehouses, or other integrations.

As a native cloud application, the platform follows standard patterns for secure cloud connectivity by supporting user-based oAuth authentication wherever possible. As a result, connecting to your desired source is typically as easy as logging into the data source's web interface.


Define User Access Permissions

Once users have created a data connection, they have the ability to define granular security controls for the data that will be made available to external clients.


Connect from Any Application or Tool

After configuring data connections, users can connect to these data sources from almost any application or tool in real-time.

CData Connect Cloud includes support for standard web connections like REST and OData and database connectivity - allowing connections to appear just like a relational SQL Server database to any client.


Technical Features

Universal read/write SQL connectivity

SQL-based connectivity to data allows clients to access any data source bi-directionally through a consistent relational model. Connect to any data, just like you would a simple database.

Comprehensive data model & dynamic discovery

Comprehensive access to all the data and metadata exposed in the underlying connections, including full access to dynamic data and easily searchable metadata making finding the data you want quick and effortless.

Enterprise support

Full single sign-on support (Okta, Azure AD) simplifies large-scale deployments, while user-level permissions secure every resource. Curated derived views provide easy access to different business data without any extra configuration.

Monitoring and governance controls

Keep track of all connections, queries, users, permission levels, logs, and account settings in a centralized, user-friendly dashboard providing a bird's eye view of all your important activities.

Accessibility from any application or tool

When you connect a data source to your CData Connect Cloud account, you make the data from that source available to clients of your choosing — anytime, anywhere you want.
