With the new External Data Sources and External Objects feature, data repositories like SAP can be accessed in Salesforce by reference without the need for data replication. One of the standard connectors provided with External Data Sources is based on the Open Data protocol (OData) that provides for a standardized way of creating and consuming data APIs. Join us for an introduction to External Data Sources, External Objects, and the OData Connector. We'll cover both sides of data connectivity, including an overview of basic characteristics of External Objects, their setup and usage, as well as a survey of the OData ecosystem. You'll learn best practices for implementing OData-backed External Objects for integration solutions.
