Learning Tabulify - Step 2 - What's a Data Resource ?
The first job of a data processing platform such as Tabulify is to work with data.
Tabulify calls, locates and knows all data uniformly under the term Data Resource.
- A file is a data resource
- A directory is a data resource
- A url is a data resource
- A database table is a data resource
- A database schema is a data resource
The Tabulify platform supports a lot of different data resources that you can discover in the data resources page.
The big strength and innovation of the Tabulify platform is that all data are uniformly named and manipulated as Data Resource.
It means that you can copy a csv file into a database table and vice-versa with the same command as if you were copying a file to another directory.
The data resources are stored in systems that we can reach with a connection.
