Skylight Connect

Simplify the process of integrating data sources to applications

Skylight Connect is used when Skylight Applications need to receive or send data to enterprise systems, connected objects and/or sensors tied to a specific task or set of tasks associated with a worker assignment.

Using Skylight Connect, IT personnel access out-of-the-box methods to connect to common databases and web services, dramatically simplifying the process of integrating Skylight Applications into their existing enterprise systems. They simply map data to objects that are immediately accessible from Skylight Application Builder.
