Writing data to DV table on Cloud Pak for Data

In CP4D 2.5, we cannot export data to DV table from Modeler flow and Notebook.

Please add features that can do that.

In our customer's organization, we have to have the data-scientist-role users use only limited data, and are planning to use Data Virtualization to accomplish that.

In an Analytics Project, some data scientists only use specific database tables for monthly task (e.g. running model and creating monthly predicted output to pre-defined table). We hope to create DV tables for that exporting data.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? CP4D system architects and operators in a company with multiple large organizations
How should it work?

We can export data to DV table from Modeler flow and Notebook.

As a limitation, DV tables that can be exported must have the same data model as the actual tables. That means, there is no need to support DV tables as a combined view of multiple tables.

Idea Priority Urgent
Priority Justification It is necessary for designing CP4D data governance in our client that have multiple large organizations

    Client use case: CP4D operation team in customer is planning to permit users in some divisions only to use DV tables. Because DV can hide DB access information from users. The users use DV tables registered as connected data asset in analytics project in Notebook and Modeler flow. They use these DV tables for reading data and writing back. In Modeler flow, user should be able to export data to these data assets of DV tables.

    Client name: Kyocera

    This is in context of SPSS Modeler (aka Modeler flow) in Cloud Pak for Data.

    Please share the client use case and based on How it should work desc this is using SPSS Modeler / Notebook have export capability to DV to create objects.
    Please share some formats. Share Client name(s).This is in context of SPSS Modeler within CPD or different? I see the heard chage to " Export from Modeler to create DV object rather than write back"
