Ascend Integration Mechanisms

There are three mechanisms to integrate your data in Ascend to other systems:

  • Push the data out from Ascend into another system. Our Write Connectors push the data out and keep the external system synchronized with the data in Ascend.
  • Pull the data from Ascend into other systems. There are two interfaces to pull data, the JDBC / ODBC Connection and File-Based Access.
  • Pull records through the Python SDK. This mechanism is suitable for low latency, low volume of data fetches.
