I attended the Salesforce World Tour event in Washington DC this week - they were demonstrating INSERT and UPDATE support using Lightning Connect in a Preview version of the software. Lots of "Safe Harbor" caveats, but it was described as coming either later in 2015 or early 2016. This is the first time I've seen INSERT and UPDATE publicly demonstrated.


I know this is a late answer but I came across this question when looking for information about lightning connect.

From within Salesforce we can only query external data sources when using Lightning Connect. We cannot perform updates against it. External sources are read only.



As of winter 16 release this feature is available .Please check the below winter 16 release notes for more info
