What is a federated data source?

Asked 2 years ago

Hello everyone. I am looking for some assistance. I'm struggling to understand federated data sources and was hoping someone could shed some light on this matter. What is a federated data source? How is it different from other data sources? Thank you for your assistance.

Data federation allows various databases to work in one. A federated data means it combines different data sources and offers constant availability of data with federated query.

A federated data source allows data from multiple sources to be combined and accessed as if it were a single source. While the data remains in its original location, the federated data source provides a unified view of the data. This approach uses database data federation tools but is different from other data sources.

Here are a few pointers to further clarify how federated data is different from other data sources:

  • Federated data sources allow users to access data from multiple places.
  • Federated data sources often provide more comprehensive results than other types of data sources.
  • Federated data sources offer more flexibility than other data sources and data management systems.

A federated data source lets you access data from multiple applications simultaneously. Unlike centralized platform data sources, this one has multiple databases connected, each having information about the users and their different aspects. You could use a federated data source to let employees access all the relevant documents without having to deal with two different systems.
