Synonym: Operational Data Provisioning
What is Data Provisioning?
Data Provisioning is the process of creation, preparation and enablement of a network to provide data from source to destination system of the user.
There are four types of provisioning:
- Real-time provisioning: In real-time provisioning data is fetched in real-time or latest data is ingested from source to destination.
- Near Real-time Data provisioning: In near real-time provisioning, it allows users to work on meta-data or data before the data is ingested from source to destination.
- Data Federation: In data federation, the actual data is not moved from the source but virtual tables are created at the destination. A user can go and build models on the data and send them to application layers.
- Local data import: Allows the user to import CSV and XLSX files directly to the destination system.
