What can I do with CB Linked Server?
CB Linked Server has a wide array of applications. Here are some use cases and scenarios:
How does it work?
CB Linked Server is an integration solution based on the Connect Bridge platform. If you think Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio is a powerful tool, check out how using CB Linked Server makes it even more powerful!
Here is what you need to do, step by step:
Install the Connect Bridge Platform
Self-hosted, either on-premises or your virtual machine = you have full control
Configure Connect Bridge for your target system
This works for 400+ target systems = you have a lot to choose from
Create a Linked Server in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio
You can do the configuration in a matter of minutes = you don't waste any time
Type your SQL queries and use stored procedures
Use standard SQL statements (SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE) or the stored procedures provided instead of calls to the software API = you avoid studying the API documentation
Connect to the Target System you want
We support a vast number of target systems, such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Dynamics or SAP. There is no need to study the documentation for each system’s API. SQL language is enough for CB Linked Server.
Choose One-way or Two-ways
CB Linked Server for Applications gives you the ability to grab the data from your target application, let’s say Microsoft Dynamics 365. Even better, you can also write back to it! Yes, you can actually choose between one-way or two-ways!
CB Linked Server can be set up and running in just a few moments. Integration of all the corporate data you need will be super quick. You’ll need to see it to believe how fast it is.
Finally, the power is in your hands! Once you have the data in Microsoft SQL Server, you can work with it as you desire: build cubes, analyze the data, connect to a legacy system, really whatever you want!
Who is this for?
CB Linked Server is perfect for those that focus on the data and use Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio:
System and IT Administrators
ISVs and System Integrators
Business and Data Analysts
Easy to Learn
SQL syntax knowledge is more than enough for the integration process. Use simple SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE statements for your integration needs.
Use Your Team
Handle all your business software integrations in-house, with your current team. They can quickly become integration heroes with Connect Bridge.
Keep Your Data Secure
You visualize all entities as database tables, but what you see is not the actual database. This approach protects your data and respects all your existing business and security principles.
CB Linked Server is self-hosted
You can choose to have it either on-premises or on a virtual machine.
You can use Connect Bridge’s database-style connection to connect to virtually any packaged software using its wide array of connectors. We have 400+ connectors available, which means you can connect to 400+ target systems. Popular choices include Microsoft Dynamics, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Salesforce and SAP, but many, many more connectors are at your disposal.
