This module explores the feed mashup builder, the operators used to manipulate and transform the data in the feed mashup builder, and the steps to follow to create a mashup. Using this information, two mashups are created to solve the veterinarian's business problems.
The feed mashup builder is the drag and drop environment used to manipulate the data and ultimately, create output that solves a problem. This module explains how to use the feed mashup builder and the process to use when composing a mashup.
You will create two mashups. The first mashup outputs a list of clients sorted by last name, living in the state of Wyoming.
The second mashup lists the zip codes where disease outbreaks are occurring, the article about the outbreak, and the client information for clients that live in those zip codes.
After completing the lessons in this module you will understand:
- How to use the feed mashup builder.
- The general capabilities of each feed mashup builder operator.
- How to define the business problem in terms of the desired outcome of the finished mashup.
- How to create a feed mashup using a feed from the MashupHub catalog, and how to filter and sort the data.
