Scribe recently made an agreement with CData that gives us access to CData’s library of over 100 drivers for common applications and databases. Earlier this year we started packaging the drivers as Scribe Online connectors to give you more direct connectivity on the platform. So far we’ve released two new connectors based on CData drivers, Google Analytics and PostgreSQL.
Google launched Google Analytics as a free service in 2005, and since then it has become the most widely used website analysis tool in the world. Installing Google Analytics on a website allows you to track and report on visitor behavior. We use it at Scribe here in Marketing.
As you might expect the connector gives you read access to the data in Google Analytics. You can pull data on the number of visitors by page, where visitors exit and how many complete the goals you’ve defined. You can integrate Google Analytics with CRM or export the data to a database for analysis in tools like Power BI or Tableau if the built-in Google reports don’t provide everything you need. For more on the connector, visit the page in the Connectivity Library.
PostgreSQL is a free, open-source database that originated at UC Berkeley. Today it is the fourth most popular database on the Internet according to iDataLabs. Scribe’s connector gives you full read and write access to PostgreSQL databases, with advanced features like native SQL query.
You can use the connector to integrate with an application that uses PostgreSQL as a data store, copy application data to a PostgreSQL database for reporting or migrate data from a PostgreSQL database to another database platform. See the Connectivity Library page for more information and a video on how to install and use the connector.
