Organizations moving to cloud services and Platform-as-a-Service solutions are attempting to reduce costs, increase agility and outsource their IT infrastructures. The dynamics are creating a variety of integration challenges as developers discover they need effective ways to connect to and surface critical business data. With the new range of RSSBus Data Providers for Google, QuickBooks, Salesforce.com and SharePoint, your developers can easily connect to these services and build powerful, integrated applications.
“The RSSBus Data Providers empower Microsoft Visual Studio developers with innovative tools for building a new generation of solutions that connect and interact with applications, databases and Web Services,” said Eric Madariaga, Director of Marketing for RSSBus. “They provide unprecedented ease of use and simplicity."
The RSSBus Data Providers can databind .NET applications to internal and external services like QuickBooks, Google, Twitter, Amazon, eBay, FedEx, Salesforce, SharePoint—and it’s just as easy as binding to SQL Server. Developers can implement the connections within minutes using simple Visual Studio wizards.
What’s more, developers can leverage their existing knowledge to deliver cutting-edge WinForms, ASP.NET and Windows Mobile solutions with full read/write functionality. The RSSBus Data Providers offer complete read/write access to services through an easy-to-use interface that is already familiar to .NET developers. If your team is familiar with ADO.NET, they already know how to use the RSSBus Data Providers.
“The RSSBus Data Providers make everything look like a SQL table. It is a one-stop tool for easily connecting to virtually any data source,” said Madariaga. “Using the RSSBus Data Providers, your .NET applications interact with local applications, databases and services in the same way you work today with SQL Tables and Stored Procedures.”
As fully managed ADO.NET data providers, RSSBus Data Providers plug directly into Visual Studio and can integrate with the Visual Studio Server Explorer to provide database-like access to any of the supported data sources. And the Data Providers also can be used in code through familiar classes and in data controls like DataGridView, GridView and DataSet.
The ADO.NET data model also works perfectly with new Visual Studio technologies like LightSwitch. The RSSBus Data Providers are immediately accessible from the latest version of LightSwitch, giving developers the tools they need to build integrated applications with little or no coding required.
