Adaptors overview

The fundamental building block of a data-flo is an adaptor.
An adaptor is a function that performs a specific task, e.g. combining separate data or splitting a text field.
There are three categories of adaptor:
  1. 1.
    ****Import: to bring data in to Data-flo from external data sources
  2. 2.
    Transformation: to perform all necessary manipulations on the data
  3. 3.
    ****Export: to make data available outside of Data-flo
Adaptors are connected to one another to create a data-flo.
A complete data-flo generally includes all three categories of adaptors.
