ODBC Connection to Kerridge DB/Kisam Driver

We'd like to connect Planning Analytics on Cloud to our Kerridge Database via ODBC. As it stands, the Kisam driver doesn't enable us to build a connection in Planning Analytics and is not supported, so we cannot create this connection and instead have to use the SQL which is very slow and hard to work with. This affects all users in the system, so we'd like to make a request for enhancement to add this as a supported ODBC connection.

    This idea is currently not under consideration. The idea can continue to receive votes and the IBM Planning Analytics team may reevaluate the idea at a later date.

    We are not specifically planning support for this data source type. However, we are considering new API endpoints that would make it easier for common ETL services to read and write to TM1 cubes.
