SQL for Web APIs – Simplifying Data Access for API Consumers

Jerod Johnson CData Software

As the data world evolves, businesses are moving more of their data out of databases and into SaaS applications. Despite the migration, SQL remains a ubiquitous language for data access, so much so that many SaaS applications and non-relational cloud data stores support SQL endpoints in their APIs. While these endpoints allow users to leverage SQL queries to easily request data, there are still costly challenges to overcome when it comes to processing and managing the returned data.

In this session, we’ll showcase popular APIs that offer SQL endpoints, explore the benefits of providing customers SQL access, and cover how standards-based drivers enable SaaS integration and self-service data access through SQL.
