Configure the CData Cloud Partner Connector for Google Data Studio

Google Data Studio allows you to create branded reports with data visualizations to share with your clients. When paired with CData Cloud, you get instant, cloud-to-cloud access to data from the supported SaaS, Big Data and NoSQL sources for visualizations, dashboards, and more. This article shows how to use the CData Cloud Partner Connector to connect to your CData Cloud instance from Google Data Studio.

CData Cloud provides a live cloud-to-cloud interface for all of your data, allowing you to easily build reports from live SaaS, Big Data and NoSQL sources in Google Data Studio — without replicating the data to a natively supported database. As you build visualizations, Google Data Studio generates queries to gather data. Using optimized data processing out of the box, CData Cloud pushes all supported complexities (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to the underlying data source, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return the requested data.
