Configuring Salesforce External Object Reports

Salesforce shops, including ourselves, have been eagerly anticipating external object support with reports. Starting in Winter ’17, you can build native reports with on-demand access to external data sources such as Oracle, SQL Server, Greenplum, Amazon Redshift, IBM DB2 or Hadoop Big Data Platforms.

External objects are powered by Salesforce Connect and provide clicks-not-code data access for admins, devs and general users. But is all of this too good to be true?

During this on-demand webinar, you’ll get:

  • An introduction to external objects and their new capabilities for reporting and Wave trending
  • Steps to setup Salesforce reports with external data sources
  • Steps to produce OData from warehouses, marts, lakes and other reporting systems
