Unified Data Views with DreamFactory
Today's organizations have the luxury of choosing from an enormous number of software products and services capable of satisfying every business requirement. Therefore it isn’t uncommon for even small companies to use upwards of a half dozen distinct software solutions for data warehousing, business analytics, point-of-sale, customer relationship management, marketing automation, and other key business operations.
Although these heterogeneous environments can be very advantageous, enterprises must figure out how to effectively query and present data in a unified manner. For instance, a cohesive customer profile might consist of information drawn from Salesforce (CRM), Stripe (purchase history), and Intercom (support interactions). DreamFactory can help you weave these distinct data sources together in order to produce a consolidated view.
Combine Multiple Data Sources
Aggregate data from different databases regardless of vendor or cloud, presenting it via a single unified response.
Build Compliant Interfaces
Use role-based access controls to ensure your interfaces and data flows are conformant to compliance and regulation policies.
Focus on Presentation Instead of Plumbing
An API-driven approach ensures your team focuses on delivering customer value rather than struggling with data management.
A major hedge fund used DreamFactory to create a trading interface which unifies information drawn from dozens of data sources.
One Query, Multiple Data Sources
It isn’t uncommon for organizations to adopt multiple databases over the course of time, only to struggle with collating the data within a single interface. DreamFactory’s Data Mesh feature can create virtual relationships between multiple databases irrespective of vendor and hosting location. Once configured, a single API call can produce a single response consisting of data hailing from MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, and IBM DB2 databases.
Create Customized, Role-specific Dashboards
Data privacy regulations such as GDPR and HIPAA require personal information records be restricted in part or in whole according to the prospective formally defined access control policy. DreamFactory’s granular role-based access controls ensure your data is distributed in an accessible yet compliant fashion.
