Integrate Google Cloud Spanner to LeanKit
Google Spanner is a Google Cloud-based database system that is ACID compliant, horizontally scalable, and global. Spanner is the database that underpins much of Google’s own data collection, and it has been designed to offer the consistency of a relational database along with the freedom of a non-relational one.
Integrate Google Cloud Spanner to LeanKit
Why We Like Google Cloud Spanner
To help facilitate high availability, Spanner includes automatic synchronous replication, which allows for your data to always be up-to-date while still being as consistent as it would be with a traditional relational database.
Just like with any relational database, Spanner can handle SQL queries and schemas, and it even supports an array of languages. Spanner also facilitates the dataflow for the likes of Adwords and Gmail, so it’s built to meet your business needs no matter how globally-reaching your company is.
Since Google developed Spanner for its own global use, it has a built in global functionality, which allows spanner to scale to fit your needs. Your data can be stored on five nodes in one region or two hundred thousand nodes scattered around the world. This means your data is available whenever and wherever you need it.
Xplenty and Google Cloud Spanner
Xplenty supports a range of data stores through Google Cloud that integrate well with Spanner, but we also can provide you with the ability to move data from non-Google Cloud-based data stores as well. You may want to move data from a legacy data store to Spanner, because you want to take advantage of its increased consistency and scalability, and Xplenty can help with that. Or maybe you have a number of data sources that all need to be merged and moved into Spanner. Xplenty can handle that, too. We can also pull data down from Spanner, transform it, merge it, and then store it anywhere you like. Our wide variety of data integrations and our simple cloud-based service allows you to take full advantage of the convenience a scalable database like Google Spanner affords. So Spanner’s ability to both protect the integrity of the data and provide horizontal scalability is especially compatible with our product functionality.
Popular Use Cases
Xplenty can extract any data that you need from LeanKit. Here are some of our most popular use cases:
Follow card movements through various lanes and retrieve the IDs of the board, card, and lane. Additionally, monitor when a card enters and exits the lane. This allows you to track speed of movement for these cards and send that lane movement information to other relevant tools.
Receive data about all available cards, including both identification info - like the card ID, card title, parent card ID and parent card title - and more action-oriented analytics data, such as card priority, start time, planned finish date, and current lane. Use this endpoint to track insights about specific cards or make card data accessible in other integrated data sources.
Historic User Assignments
Get a card’s assignment history. This includes the assigned users’ IDs, names, and email as well as historical data about when the card was assigned. This helps gauge the efficiency of various users and understand the workflow speed of each card.
Current User Assignments
Request a list of who is assigned to which cards. This list includes both data about the cards themselves (card ID, priority, and type) and information about the assigned users, such as their name, email address, and user ID. Use this data to track a specific user’s progress with their cards and/or visualize where and why bottlenecks occur.
View a list of cards with custom fields and access an array of information about them, such as their card IDs and the ID, label, type, and value of the related custom fields. Then, use this endpoint to export custom field data into data sources that provide valuable insights about those fields.
Examine all accessible lanes and get both identification data - like lane ID, title, class and type - and data about how the lane is used, such as the lane’s policy, creation date, position, and WiP limit. Integrate this endpoint with endpoints like ‘Cards” and “Current User Assignments” to get more specific analytics about the efficiency of different lanes in your workflow.
See the board IDs, card IDs, and titles of all tags that are attached to cards in your LeanKit. Use these tags to track more specific data from integrated data sources. This will allow for better, more detailed organizational structures.
