Comindware integration with Data Studio

Data studio is a google service that provides the ability to connect to any data source. Based on them, you can create interactive dashboards and beautiful reports, available both for individual users, teams, and for the whole world.

Data Studio cannot connect directly to CMW Tracker because the product has a graph database instead of a relational one. Most of the existing inbuilt connectors are designed specifically for the relational databases. To still be able to upload data from CMW Tracker templates, you need your own connector. Comindware Connect was created for exactly this purpose. In this article, you will learn how to set up data transfer from CMW Tracker to Data Studio using this connector. All settings will be made in Data Studio.

1. Go to the Data Studio website.

2. If you are visiting the Data Studio website for the first time, click the "USE IT FOR FREE" button to access the site's features.
