CData Tableau Connector for Sage 300
The CData Tableau Connector for Sage 300 offers self-service integration with Tableau. The connector facilitates live access to Sage 300 data in Tableau using the connection window. The connector also provides direct querying to visualize and analyze Sage 300 data.
The connector supports Tableau Desktop 2020.1 or later and Tableau Prep 2020.4.1 or later. For older versions of Tableau, the CData ODBC Driver for Sage 300 or the CData JDBC Driver for Sage 300 can serve as an alternative means of connecting to Sage 300 data in Tableau.
Once a connection has been configured, see Getting Data to set up a data source that offers live connectivity to Sage 300.
Advanced Features details additional features supported by the connector, such as defining user defined views, ssl configuration, remoting, caching, firewall/proxy settings, and advanced logging.
