Want to use your double click data with BigQuery but no idea how to import it fast and without knowledge of code? The BigQuery Transfer Service makes this possible. The service allows you to easily load your data from different sources like DoubleClick, Youtube and AdWords and has already proven to be quite helpful to our business and our customers.
In this blog, we explain how it works and what the benefits are.
The BigQuery Transfer Service
The BigQuery Data Transfer Service automates the transfer of data from SaaS apps to Google BigQuery in a planned and managed manner.
The BigQuery Transfer Service democratizes data analysis by making it possible for everyone in your analysis team to lay the foundation for a data warehouse without having to write a single line of code. This means that everyone that is allowed to have access to the Google Cloud Platform and the different Saas apps can use the service.
For which sources?
Currently, the BigQuery Data Transfer Service supports loading data from the following data sources:
- Google AdWords (beta)
- DoubleClick Campaign Manager
- DoubleClick for Publishers
- YouTube - Channel Reports (beta)
- YouTube - Content Owner Reports (beta)
To start using the transfer service, you don't have to install anything; you just have to configure it through a user-friendly interface. After entering your account information and verifying the access, the data will appear in BigQuery right away. The service will keep your data always up to date. When a supported source app announces a change in reporting, the corresponding BigQuery Data Transfer Service retrieves this newly announced data for your analysis.
Well, we think the explanation above already sums it up, but you are not convinced, here are some extra benefits for the transfer service.
