DataMarket helps Dundas contextualize BI data in the most cost effective way

Learn how Dundas uses DataMarket to bring in reliable, trusted public domain and premium commercial data into Dashboard without a lot of development time and costs. This is only possible because DataMarket takes a standardized approach, with a REST-based model for consuming services and data views that are offered in tabular form or as OData feeds. Without having a standard in place, Dundas would be forced to write all kinds of web services and retrieval mechanisms to get data from the right places and put it into the proper format for processing.
