Enterprise-Class Data Acquisition
Incorta’s data connectors provide point-and-click support for a huge variety of databases, technologies, and enterprise applications and custom sources.
With over 40 connectors available today, and an expanding ecosystem of connectors being developed by Incorta and its partners, any data can now be acquired, enriched, and analyzed with unprecedented speed and agility.
Solving the Requirements of Enterprise-Scale Workloads
For many companies today, the rate of data proliferation coupled with the complexity of modern and distributed business data systems has far outstripped their capacity to collect, analyze, synthesize and act responsively.
To make such large volumes of data ready for analytics at the speed of business, we had to rethink the way data is acquired and prepared.
Data connectors are a complimentary part of Incorta’s data acquisition process that includes the data loader, schema introspection, and Direct Data Mapping™.
Incorta presents the user with a configuration page for each data connector type. It is easy to add credentials, parameters, filters, and other properties as needed by the connector.
The Incorta Connector SDK makes it possible for customers and 3rd parties to create new connectors that run as first-class system components to expand the Incorta ecosystem as new requirements arise.
The connector design allows for complex scenarios, allowing extraction logic to be optimized at the source, or custom processing dependent on the data origin. A connector can invoke source-side logic, such as application-level procedures, SQL joins, and API calls to return chunked or partial file transfers.
Connectors not only return data, but they also obtain metadata from the source system. Metadata is used during schema creation to discover and label the data elements to be extracted and mapped into the data lake.
In addition to remote data sources, local data files can be uploaded directly into memory from a local disk.
Incorta supports these file types: CSV, GZIP, JSON, TSV, TAB, TXT, XLSX, XML and ZIP files.
An Expanding Ecosystem
New connectors are being continually developed by Incorta and our partners.
