DataStage : Trino connector

We need a connector for Trino in InfoSphere Datastage as Trino is not supported officially by IBM. PMR No : TS016068863

#emea #csm #mea Integrate IBM Knowledge Catalog Governance into DataStage Flows

Issue: Currently, in IBM Cloud Pak for Data, data protection rules defined within Watson Knowledge Catalog are not directly applied to DataStage flows, even when governed assets from the catalog are used. This creates confusion and a sense that no...
