APOS Live Data Gateway -
Creating Governed, Performant Connections

Performance and governance are two extremely important aspects of data connectivity that IT professionals and BI & analytics platform managers must consider in selecting and implementing a data connectivity solution. Unfortunately, the importance given to these two aspects may result in trade-offs between them. Do you need to sacrifice performance for governance, or governance for performance?

APOS Live Data Gateway answers with a resounding “No.” You don’t have to sacrifice either performance or governance to achieve universal data connectivity.


Performance is a function of:

  • Speed of connection
  • Data rendering time
  • Query calculations

If you are working with large data sets, especially if they are in the Cloud and present extra layers of connectivity complexity, you have to know that connections are established quickly, data is rendered quickly, and query calculations occur quickly.

Watch this APOS Live Data Gateway demonstration of connecting to a large data set (a Snowflake data set of over a billion rows, in this case), and the speed with which data is rendered and queries calculated.




You can see that there is no performance sacrifice, but what about governance?

APOS Live Data Gateway provides governed data connectivity:

  • Data is accessed from its existing location – Establish a single, simplified and consistent connection into relational, OLAP, Cloud, and Hadoop data.
  • Data is always current – Stream live data from the source and consume it via OData. JDBC, or ODBC across the SAP solution landscape.
  • Data never leaves the firewall – Your on-premise data source queries do not transmit data to SAP Analytics Cloud or other Cloud solutions. Data is assembled in the client browser.
  • Data access leverages existing security – your existing security governs data access.
