Company.info are Dutch online software services for a large number of data-related tasks such as credit checks and accessing public registers such as Ultimate Beneficiary Owner ("UBO").
Invantive SQL is available on many user interfaces ("clients" in traditional server-client paradigma). All Invantive SQL statements can be exchanged with a close to 100% compatibility across all clients and operating systems (Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS, Android).
The clients include Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Power BI, Microsoft Power Query, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook. Web-based clients include Invantive Cloud, Invantive Bridge Online as OData proxy, Invantive App Online for interactive apps, Online SQL Editor for query execution and Invantive Data Access Point as extended proxy.
The Company.info Power BI connector is based on the Invantive SQL driver for Company.info, completed by a high-performance OData connector which works straight on Power BI without any add-on. The OData protocol is always version 4, independent whether the backing platform uses OData, SOAP or another protocol.
For technical users there are command-line editions of Invantive Data Hub running on iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS and Linux. Invantive Data Hub is also often used for enterprise server applications such as ETL. High-volume replication of data taken from the Company.info API into traditional databases such as SQL Server (on-premise and Azure), MySQL, PostgreSQL and Oracle is possible using Invantive Data Replicator. Invantive Data Replicator automatically creates and maintains Company.info datawarehouses, possibly in combination with data from over 70 other (cloud) platforms. Data Replicator supports data volumes up to over 1 TB and over 5.000 companies. The on-premise edition of Invantive Bridge offers an Company.info ADO.net provider.
Finally, online web apps can be build for Company.info using App Online of Invantive Cloud.
When a query or DML-statement has been executed on Invantive SQL a developer can evaluate the actual calls made to the Company.info API using a query on sessionios@DataDictionary. As an alternative, extensive request and response logging can be enabled by setting log-native-calls-to-disk to true. In the %USERPROFILE%\Invantive\NativeLogs folder Invantive SQL will create log files per API request and response.
The SQL driver for Company.info does not support partitioning. Define one data container in a database for each company in Company.info to enable parallel access for data from multiple companies.
An introduction into the concepts of Invantive SQL such as databases, data containers and partitioning can be found in the Invantive SQL grammar.
The configuration can be changed using various attributes during log on and use. A full list of configuration options is listed in the driver attributes.
The catalog name is used to compose the full qualified name of an object like a table or view. The schema name is used to compose the full qualified name of an object like a table or view. On Company.info the comparison of two texts is case sensitive by default.
Changes and bug fixes on the Company.info SQL driver can be found in the release notes. There is currently no specific section on the Invantive forums for Company.info. Please reach out to other users of Company.info by leaving a question or contact request.
