Connecting to the ALTR Rest API for more insight on your security and governance
by Naima Houbati
Cloud technologies open a new era in leveraging data in an easy and elegant way. Data providers publishing REST APIs that enable data pulls from those data providers is a great example of this phenomenon.
But if it was too easy, we would not need to write this blog today. Each REST API has its own way of working and its little secrets when it comes to connection. So let us give you a hand on the ALTR Rest API using Matillion and Snowflake.
Codex Consulting focuses on helping SMBs in integrating any data sources (cloud, on prem, structured or not) into a centralized cloud data platform, thanks to Snowflake. So, we make the complexity of all the formats, protocols, data types out there much easier. Matillion is our data integration platform of choice to streamline any data pipelines and deliver the promised value to our customers.
ALTR is our choice to secure, govern and monitor data consumption.
So, we wanted to share what we have learned to streamline ALTR data into your Snowflake environment.
