Accessing the Connect Service Using an ADO.NET Data Provider

The SuiteAnalytics Connect for ADO.NET data provider enables you to access the Connect Service from the Microsoft .NET platform. This type of data provider is appropriate for multi-tier architectures where you want to perform more complex data processing and analysis. Using a Connect ADO.NET data provider provides increased scalability for applications. The two main components of ADO.NET for accessing and manipulating data are the .NET Framework data providers and the DataSet. You can incorporate the Connect Service as one data source (of possibly multiple data sources) in to your ADO.NET schema.

The following table lists the tasks you must complete to set up your environment, download, and install the ADO.NET driver.
