Business b-ridge ODBC Driver

Business b-ridgeODBC Driver を使って、ODBC 接続をサポートするあらゆるアプリケーション・ツールからBusiness b-ridge にデータ連携。

Business b-ridge データにデータベースと同感覚でアクセスして、多様なデータに使い慣れたODBC インターフェースで双方向連携。



CData ODBC Driver for Business b-ridge を使って、SAS からBusiness b-ridge データを連携利用。

SAS は、高度なアナリティクス、BI、データ管理、予測分析のためのソフトウェアです。SAS とCData ODBC Driver for Business b-ridge を合わせて使うことで、SAS からリアルタイムBusiness b-ridge data へのアクセスが可能になります。本記事では、SAS でBusiness b-ridge のライブラリを作成し、データベースのようにデータを扱い、レポートを作成します。

The CData ODBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Business b-ridge data in SAS due to optimized data processing built into the driver. When you issue complex SQL queries from SAS to Business b-ridge, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Business b-ridge and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations (often SQL functions and JOIN operations) client-side. With built-in dynamic metadata querying, you can easily visualize and analyze Business b-ridge data in SAS.

Connect to Business b-ridge as an ODBC Data Source

Information for connecting to Business b-ridge follows, along with different instructions for configuring a DSN in Windows and Linux environments (the ODBC Driver for Business b-ridge must be installed on the machine hosting the SAS System).

When connecting to Business b-ridge, CompanyKey, ProjectKey, and SubscriptionKey are required.

To obtain the SubscriptionKey, follow the steps below:

  • Log in to Business b-ridge API Protal and go to "Profile" in the "Your name" menu.
  • In your subscription section click "Main Key" to retrieve their respective values.

Authenticate to Business b-ridge Account

Set the following connection properties to connect:

  • CompanyKey: Set the Business b-ridge Company Key of the connection destination.
  • ProjectKey: Set the Business b-ridge Project Key of the connection destination.
  • SubscriptionKey: Set the value "Subscription Key".

When you configure the DSN, you may also want to set the Max Rows connection property. This will limit the number of rows returned, which is especially helpful for improving performance when designing reports and visualizations.

Windows

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

Linux

If you are installing the CData ODBC Driver for Business b-ridge in a Linux environment, the driver installation predefines a system DSN. You can modify the DSN by editing the system data sources file (/etc/odbc.ini) and defining the required connection properties.

/etc/odbc.ini

Create a Business b-ridge Library in SAS

Connect to Business b-ridge in SAS by adding a library based on the CData ODBC Driver for Business b-ridge.

  1. Open SAS and expand Libraries in the Explorer pane.
  2. In the Active Libraries window, right-click and select New.
  3. Name your library (odbclib), select ODBC as the Engine, and click to Enable at startup (if you want the library to persist between sessions).
  4. Set Data Source to the DSN you previously configured and click OK.

Create a View from a Business b-ridge Query

SAS natively supports querying data either using a low-code, point-and-click Query tool or programmatically with PROC SQL and a custom SQL query. When you create a View in SAS, the defining query is executed each time the view is queried. This means that you always query live Business b-ridge data for reports, charts, and analytics.

Using the Query Tool

  1. In SAS, click Tools -> Query
  2. Select the table sources and the table(s) you wish to pull data from. Then, click OK.
  3. Select columns and right-click to add filtering, ordering, grouping, etc.
  4. Create a local view to contain the query results by right-clicking the SQL Query Tool window, selecting Show Query, and clicking Create View. Name the View and click OK.

Using PROC SQL

  1. In SAS, navigate to the Editor window.
  2. Use PROC SQL to query the data and create a local view.
    NOTE: This procedure creates a view in the Work library. You can optionally specify a library in the create view statement.
    proc sql;
      create view cdata_view as
      select 
        itemid, 
        structureid 
      from 
        odbclib.cdata 
      where 
        ItemTypeId = '1';
    quit;
    
  3. Click Run -> Submit to execute the query and create a local view.

Report On or Visualize Business b-ridge Data in SAS

With a local view created, you can report, visualize, or otherwise analyze Business b-ridge data using the powerful SAS features. Print a simple report using PROC PRINT and create a basic graph based on the data using PROC GCHART.

Print an HTML Report

  1. In SAS, navigate to the Editor window.
  2. Use PROC PRINT to print an HTML report for the Business b-ridge CDATA data.
    proc print data=cdata;
      title "Business b-ridge CDATA Data";
    run;
    

Print a Chart

  1. In SAS, navigate to the Editor window.
  2. Use PROC GCHART to create a chart for the CDATA data.
    proc gchart data=cdata;
      pie itemid / sumvar=structureid
          value=arrow
          percent=arrow
          noheading
          percent=inside plabel=(height=12pt)
          slice=inside value=none
          name='CDATAChart';
    run;
