I want to call/execute a stored procedure, which sits on an external database server, from salesforce. This SP basically takes the SF data as parameter and process it.

Is there a way to connect to other databases directly from salesforce, or creating a webservice and consuming it, is the only way.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Unfortunately you cannot directly connect to an outside database from Salesforce. You will need some kind of middle man (integration middle-layer), whether it is a custom built webservice that you call or a market solution like Cast Iron, Dell Boomi etc.
