Data Connectivity for Low-Code Platforms

Low-code (and no-code) platforms provide business users and developers alike with the ability to easily build applications to increase productivity and drive business. Low-code platforms and frameworks generally provide straightforward connectivity to databases but often fall short when it comes to connecting to external data. Users may get basic API connectivity but are forced to write code to work with a business application's API.

CData solves the integration problem for on-premise platforms and frameworks through standard connectors like JDBC, ODBC, and ADO.NET and for cloud-based low-code solutions through the CData Cloud Hub.

Regardless of where your platform or your data is hosted, CData makes it easy to connect. With access to data from more than 200 SaaS, Big Data, and NoSQL data sources, CData unlocks data access for a wide range of use cases - from building internal operational applications to marketing tools, custom reporting, and more.

You can learn more about how CData extends data connectivity for low-code solutions on our low-code data integration page or scroll down to read about specific use-cases and jump to full walk-through articles.
