Import Anaplan Data into Spotfire



Could someone explain how we can import Anaplan data into Spotfire?

Is there a specific connector that I should install?


I heard there is a Auth 2 connection, but I have a very basic level in all this. Don't know how to handle this.

Something that explains step-by-step how to make it happen would be awesome.


Thanks for your support!

    It looks like Anaplan supports JDBC drives. With this JDBC drivers you can ask you Spotfire admin to create an information link and add the JDBC driver to the.\tomcat\custom-ext directory. Anaplan also supports ODBC so if you want to connect only your client, you can do so with ODBC. Here are step by step guide I found from Anaplan. Once you have the drivers and everything you need for a successful ODBC connection, then you can use Spotfire as many other software to bring the data from it. I recommend however, using TDV (Tibco Data Virtualization) which is part of Spotfire to get data on-demand and perform dynamic queries through its connector vs bringing all data at once on memory via ODBC in you are dealing with large amounts of data
