Data Connectivity for Cloud-based Analytics and Low-Code Development with Cloud Hub

Ad hoc and citizen integrators are commonly turning to a new era of cloud solutions for data analytics and line-of-business application development. Popular cloud applications like Tableau Online, Looker Studio (formerly Google Data Studio), and Microsoft Power Apps provide a versatile framework for working with data, and offer organizations an easy, flexible, and cost-effective way to process data and connect systems without significant upfront IT investments.

Unfortunately, because of the nature of hosted services, many cloud applications offer limited extensibility – especially as it relates to data connectivity. Outside of a few core databases, many cloud applications support a minimal number of external data sources or POC-quality connectors at best.

The CData Cloud Hub solves these cloud-to-cloud data integration problems with a cloud-based data proxy to hundreds of SaaS-applications, Big Data, and NoSQL data sources.

By exposing a SQL interface for data, Cloud Hub allows cloud BI tools (like Looker Studio) and app development platforms (like Microsoft Power Apps) to interact with any data source in real-time, as if it were a relational database.

With data access and integration handled through Cloud Hub, businesses are freed from integration burdens to focus on core projects that drive business success. In this article, we share several videos showing how to use the CData Cloud Hub to work with data in select cloud-based tools and platforms.
