Can Ataccama connect to data sources like SharePoint & MS365 and classify data?

Can Ataccama connect to data sources like SharePoint & MS365 and classify or label data say that has Personally Identifiable Information - SSN,SIN, date of birth, etc? Can it detect and auto classify data based on specified criteria?

Hi Partha,

We don’t officially support documents saved in Sharepoint or Office365 so we don’t have any documentation on it nor do we guarantee its functionality. However there is a way to get it to work. If you can find a JDBC driver for sharepoint or Office365 and add it to the runtime directory of the Ataccama build, you can read/write data using the JDBC reader/writer step

DQA has very limited capabilities and you can’t use validation steps inside it. You can do some classification by using a Column Assigner step with some expressions but that is all. You could use the DQC to validate SIN, DOB etc.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks.
Aneeq
