1. Beyond CSV and JSON: working with other data sources

Surely, CSV and JSON are the most common data sources when it comes to storing the data. And WebDataRocks perfectly copes with its processing. 

But if you prefer to load the data directly from the database, you can try connecting to relational or NoSQL databases from Flexmonster Pivot.

Or if your data comes from an OLAP cube, you can connect to Pentaho Mondrian or Microsoft Analysis Services and start pivoting your data in minutes.

Lastly, if you prefer Elasticsearch to any other data storages, that’s not a problem at all likewise. You can easily connect to the index from the pivot table just as fast.

As you can see, Flexmonster provides a lot more data source options to which you can connect.

What else deserves special attention is the special algorithm under the hood of Flexmonster which ensures the data from the cube or index is loaded piece-by-piece, meaning the component loads only the data that is specified by the current slice

This approach guarantees that all the data calculations are performed on the server-side and less data is loaded into the browser thereby improving the overall performance of your app.
