Quick tip of the quarter: Retrieve custom reports using ‘Define New Table’
Did you know you can pull many of the standard and custom reports from a variety of data sources into a table format?
The Define New Table feature exposes views with all your existing data from reports across your favorite tools and systems. This feature enables you to query real-time data from a report, where you can further modify, format, or visualize using tools like Excel, Power BI, or Tableau (or any CData Driver technology). Another added benefit? CData Drivers will expose the relative parameters available for the report view selected.
In addition to an extensive pipeline of drivers for new data sources, CData has some exciting new driver developments coming soon, including:
Enhanced Marketing Analytics

We’re working hard to get these and more features to you in the coming months – hopefully you share our excitement!
