Business intelligence initiatives, real-time dashboards, and improved reporting are on everyone's radar. Unfortunately, data is more dispersed than ever before, increasingly distributed in the various SaaS applications that a business relies upon. This makes the challenge of implementing these initiatives far more difficult than in the ‘good ole days,' where one could simply connect the tools directly to a database. SaaS data is not open and accessible in a standard way. Instead, it is exposed via APIs (programming interfaces) that require custom coding and expensive integration projects just to connect the pieces together.
