Provide a less database centric view of data sources

The data platform needs to provide a less Database centric view of each supported data source. Currently any user wanting to move data from a source such as Salesforce is required to have a deep understanding of the database structure and associated schema to be able to select all the desired data fields. Providing a somewhat abstracted data object view that enables less technical users to select the data objects they are more familiar with from a data source UI standpoint such as “Cases” or “Accounts” vs having to know all the relational DB tables and fields that end up comprising those objects in the Salesforce UI.

    We will be updating the view of assets in the catalog to help users better understand where the data comes from and what information is in the table. Discovery will also become much easier to implement as a business user.
