Highlights of What’s New in Toad Data Point 3.5


Expanded data sources

Toad Data Point has always been on the forefront of adding support and data connectors to the sources that you require. And in this release, we've made one of the biggest enhancements to the number of data sources we connect to with by providing a host of new BI and NoSQL connectivity, including Google Analytics®, Azure® DataMarket, Azure Table Storage Service, Cassandra®, OData®, DynamoDB®, SimpleDB®, Apache® HBase®, MongoDB®, and Microsoft® SharePoint® . With Toad Data Point Pro and above, you can now join data from all these different sources without ever leaving the tool.

Improved collaboration and sharing

The Power to Do More is Dell's mantra and what we aim to do across all of our Toad products. And that's why we've enabled you to share your Toad Data Point files with other users. You can drastically do more and improve productivity by sharing and collaborating with other Toad users on queries you've written, datasets you've created , data visualizations, ER diagrams and more. Don't let your team work in a silo – work together and share all the great reports you have built with Toad Intelligence Central. 


Improved Salesforce support

Running complex reports in Salesforce is challenging at best. Blending that data with your Oracle or Access data is even harder. That's why we've created connectors to – to make it easy for you query and join that data with other sources. We received a lot of feedback from you and what you needed to be successful with Salesforce, including single sign on. With this latest release, we have enabled single sign-on with your corporate credentials when connecting to Salesforce®. Watch How to connect to Salesforce in Toad Data Point
