Use columnar file formats with cloudworks


WIth the ability to connect cloud storage to anaplan with cloudworks, it would be great to be able to use columnar file formats (like parquet or orc).

Parquet format is considered a better file format for analytical workloads as large sets of data can be read faster than with row files format (.csv, .txt, .tsv..).

As these files format are more and more commonly found in modern data architectures (and yeah they also take far less space than .csv, so better for reducing energy consumption footprints), it would make sens to allow cloudworks to process parquet files formats
