Askdata and MicroStrategy - Batch Integration

Topic:
March 3, 2020

The MicroStrategy REST API is a RESTful application that uses HTTP requests such as POST, GET, and DELETE. It is designed to help developers build data-driven client applications quickly and easily. It does this by providing light-weight JSON data that is easy to consume because it includes raw data without direct formatting. Developers can use the MicroStrategy REST API programmatically in their own code, or in a tool like curl.


Pros:

  • Ideal for massive data interaction
  • More aggregation functions availalbe due to the limited number of aggregation functions available through the MicroStrategy REST API framework
  • MicroStrategy REST API licensing could not be available

Cons:

  • Data is updated according to the frequency of the batch export
