DataHub v3.0 extends the functionality of Dataviews by providing access to a variety of additional data sources and a means to cache retrieved data. This topic introduces DataHub v3.0.
DataHub, as a product, has changed.
Earlier versions of DataHub included functionality for creating and managing Dataviews; this functionality has been removed from DataHub and moved into our Discovery v3.0 add-on module and its successor, Logi Platform Services. Another change is that DataHub itself now requires a Logi product license.
Without DataHub, the data defined in Dataviews is retrieved in real time and cached using Logi Info's standard memory and temporary cache file technology.
However, when you install DataHub v3.0, the functionality of Dataviews is extended: they can also access a variety of file-, cloud-, and application-based data sources, including:
- Amazon Dynamo DB
- Financial Accounts (OFX)
- Google Analytics
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM On Premise
- Microsoft Dynamics GP
- Quickbooks Online
- Quickbooks On Premise
- Quickbooks POS
- SAP Netweaver
- Microsoft Excel file
- Comma-Separated Values (CSV) data file
Data from these sources can be used alone or joined with data from the traditional data sources available for Dataviews.
In addition, a self-tuning, easy-to-maintain, columnar data store is installed, allowing you to cache retrieved data in a database for improved performance, especially with large data sets. Once the data is cached, a schedule can be established to refresh it periodically.
