The first thing you need to know is that we give you three different methods to interact with your SlicingDice's databases:
- The JDBC, ODBC and ADO.NET SQL Drivers.
- The API-based SQL Endpoint.
- The API-based JSON Endpoint.
These methods allow you to insert and query data, using standard SQL (on the SQL Drivers and SQL Endpoint) or JSON requests (on our API-based methods). You are going to see examples for all the methods we support as you go through our documentation pages.
The second thing you need to know is that SlicingDice has few but important differences to other databases or data warehouses. You can understand more about these differences and concepts accessing the SlicingDice key concepts page.
Are we a good fit for you?
SlicingDice is very simple and easy to use. Although we are faster and cheaper than our competitors.
If you are a developer, notice that you can integrate SlicingDice to your system using our REST API (JSON) or our JDBC, ODBC and ADO.net SQL drivers.
If you are a database administrator (DBA), you can load your existing data from hundreds of sources directly to SlicingDice using the Data Loading & Syncing module, without having to write a single line of code, and then connect your SQL Workbench [SQL or BI tool] to start leveraging our amazing query speed. If you don't already have a BI tool, you can use SlicingDice's Data Visualization module.
For both cases, the only information you need to learn in order to move forward with SlicingDice is described on the SlicingDice Key Concepts page.
