Integrate Google Cloud Spanner to Xero
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 Xero
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 Xero. Here are some of our most popular use cases:
Retrieve data about any account you have in Xero - bank accounts, expense accounts, sales accounts, etc., - including the account’s name, ID, type, and description. Then, integrate this data with other endpoints - like invoices and payments - to track income and expense details for each account. This will provide you with a more comprehensive understanding of your company’s overall financial performance.
Track all bank transactions that are captured by Xero, including both payments that you have received and business expenses that you have paid. Then, use that data to gain a better understanding of your finances. Specifically, look at details gathered from those transactions - such as the bank account IDs, transaction dates, amounts paid, relevant contact IDs, and type of transaction - to better understand your finances and see if any changes need to be made.
Get a range of important accounting data for different contacts within your Xero database. This includes communication details - like the contact’s name, email address, and organization - as well as details about their relationship with your company, such as their outstanding balance and their customer status.
Create or retrieve data related to any bank transfers to or from accounts that are linked to Xero. This can include the name and ID of every involved account, the amount that was transferred, and the date the transfer happened. This data can help you keep track of your bank accounts so that you can maintain an accurate and clean accounting database.
Retrieve data for any invoice that has been prepared and sent using Xero, including its total amount, due date, associated contacts, and relevant payment IDs. This data can help you accurately track a variety of financial metrics, including your sales data and your expected revenue.
Get details about any payments that were sent to Xero for accounting, including the payment date, amount, and any unique identifiers that are associated with it, including account ID and invoice ID. Then, use those IDs to link the payments back to relevant accounts, contacts, and invoices. This will help you create more detailed and accurate sales analytics.
