Hi @narulas8 

It depends on what kind of unstructured/semi-structured data you are working with and where it resides which in turn helps us decide what CData tool you are working with and what data sources you are interested in connecting to.

Generally speaking, CData connectivity solutions hide the complexities of backend systems (through APIs, wire protocols, RPCs, etc.) and simplify the integration process by providing an SQL interface to the data. What this also means is that CData connectors have ways in which they can model the data in a relational or structured manner.

But again, this highly depends on where the data resides and what kind of data is it.
