Salesforce Wave has a number of approaches to build an analytical dataset, and a common one includes the following steps:
Step #2 is often the most difficult as it requires integration with data located off the Salesforce platform. Many organizations turn to Progress for accessing external objects via OData from Salesforce for integration, external object reports or wave trending. To further leverage these OData endpoints, my developer relations team decided to make things easier for Wave Analytics by building an open source wave connector that can access those same OData endpoints, even without external objects. It was developed by Saikrishna Teja Bobba. Progress is a member of the OData technical committee and we support adoption of data access standards such as OData.
There are many OData endpoints in the ecosystem you can leverage today without any additional services. If you’re looking for an OData endpoint for your on-premises ERP systems, data warehouses or Hadoop platforms, Progress has lightweight OData connectivity services for popular databases such as Oracle, SQL Server, IBM DB2, Postgres, Amazon Redshift, Hadoop Hive, and more. You can deploy an OData service in minutes with a free trial if you’re interested.
Learn more and grab a trial of Progress DataDirect OData services to connect the Salesforce Platform to external data for use with External Objects, Salesforce Reports and Wave DataSets through an industry standard REST API. And don't forget to check out the open source wave connector on GitHub.
