This is part of the SAP Lumira Discovery blog series.
SAP Lumira Discovery connects directly to a wide range of non-SAP data sources ranging from Databases, Cloud applications and Big Data systems through JDBC drivers. Once the data is imported, we can refresh it as required subsequently.
(Note: Discovery can also indirectly connect to a lot of data sources through SAP BuinessObjects Universe, thereby expanding the possibilities and reusing existing investments in SAP BI)
A similar approach is followed for Big DATA, where Discovery supports Hadoop and Spark through Apache and Impala through Cloudera connectors.
A full list of SQL sources can be found under : Main Menu > Preferences > SQL Drivers
Once the connection is established, we would be able to access the tables or query using freehand SQL.
