Nintex K2 Cloud provides customers with a robust platform to build apps in a SaaS offering that doesn’t require the day-to-day management or on-going support of other K2 infrastructure. Many customers needed a way to access their on-premises line-of-business (LOB) data within K2 Cloud. As a result, we initially introduced customers to our K2 Cloud Secure Data Access (SDA) offering. After speaking with many SDA users, we learned that it was not the perfect solution for your day-to-day business needs. As such, we are excited to announce an improvement in this offering — Nintex K2 Cloud On-premises Data Access (OPDA).
OPDA is the future of our on-prem data access strategy for K2 Cloud customers that want to build apps in the cloud and interact securely with data that lives on-premises and behind your firewall. This data is made available to your K2 Cloud tenancy using a network appliance that will be deployed within your private network.
What this transition means for you…
While the outcome of OPDA for you as an SDA customer is the same, the setup and day-to-day management is greatly improved. In order to migrate from SDA to OPDA, the Nintex team will work with you to replace your current SDA appliance and update any relevant K2 Cloud service instances.
