Note: If users have rights, they can setup configurable data sources themselves directly from inside the data modeling tools.

Pass-through Direct Query

Pass-through datasources can be natively queried by Pyramid with direct queries. This means that the data does not need to be pre-processed or copied by Pyramid (or any other technology) before it can be queried by users.

Note: MS Analysis Services (OLAP and Tabular) can be directly queried using their existing cubes and tabular models.

Data Targets

'Targets' in data preparation allows Pyramid to mash up data and WRITE the resulting database to the targeted technology and designated server. Given that Pyramid can write to a variety of data stacks, the targeting options give users a wide variety of options on where to build intermediate models and how to correct issues with their data before they start the analysis process.

Pulse

A number of datasources are compatible with Pulse. When connecting to a Pulse datasource, you may opt to directly query the datasource, or you may add select or multi-select nodes to perform data streaming.
