With IBM® Cloud Pak for Data, you can connect to the different data sources in your enterprise so that everyone can find the data that they need quickly and easily.
Connect to data sources
- To create a connection to use in the enterprise data catalog, see Connecting to data sources.
- To create a connection that is not in the catalog for use in an analytics project, see Adding data sources and remote data sets to analytics projects.
If you need to create a connection to an unsupported data source, contact your administrator to import a JDBC driver for the relational database.
If you need to consolidate data that is available in multiple data sets into a single table, you can virtualize the data by joining the tables. For more information, see Data Virtualization.
Search for data
You can search for the data that you need either from the toolbar, or from the data catalog. See Searching for data.
