It connects to a wide range of databases (SQL and NoSQL), including Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MS Access, Teradata, MongoDB, etc.Zoho Analytics is an online Business Intelligence and Reporting service that can be used as an online database.
It allows you to import data from local or hosted databases such as MySQL, MS SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, etc. You can also extract data from NoSQL databases and import it into Zoho Analytics. This platform neutral API allows you to integrate real-time data changes from your applications or databases into Zoho Analytics. With the launch of Zoho DB & Reports on Wednesday, we now have 3 services that handle structured data.The main goal of Zoho Creator is to create custom database applications online.
It allows you to quickly create a powerful online database application to collect data and trigger workflows through forms and scripts. On the other hand, Zoho Analytics is optimised for reporting and querying rather than serving as a real-time online transactional database. You can create multiple types of views - Tabular View, Chart View, Pivot View, Summary View, etc. from the “New” button.Analyse and uncover hidden insights from the data present in your internal databases (both SQL and NoSQL) using Zoho Analytics.
