Luminesce is a data virtualization engine for LUSID and other applications.
Luminesce enables you to query multiple sources of business intelligence in real-time—including investment management data stored in LUSID itself—and build a consolidated picture, optionally importing external data into LUSID. Alternatively, you can use Luminesce in a standalone capacity, without any interaction with LUSID.
Data virtualization means you don’t have to extract, transform and load data into a data warehouse or lake, with all the attendant cost, complexity and obsolescence issues. You don’t have to worry about data in multiple sources being in different formats or conforming to different models. You can query any data source for which a Luminesce provider exists in place, using a uniform set of SQL-based tools. We supply providers for LUSID and other popular external data sources, or you can create your own.
If you are a LUSID user, and providing you have an appropriate license and permissions, you can interact with Luminesce using the LUSID web app, via the Data Virtualisation menu:
Alternatively, you can interact with Luminesce programmatically using a variety of API, SDK and command line tools.
