Share data in real-time
One version of the truth
Data sharing means that different users not only have access but that access is controlled. Cobbler gives each user abilities limited to feed needs. For example; some users may only be allowed to enter data. That data may be restricted to a few data elements or open as far as needed. Other users may only be allowed to look at real-time results. The combinations of how these controls can be applied is virtually limitless.
Data sharing means being able to work together. Most users have specific jobs requiring specific kinds of data. Those users have ready access to needed data as well as ready access to add new data. There are also cases where data needs to be changed or the user needs greater access.
Does Cobbler have a centralized database? Indeed it does. All data, spreadsheet and row data, is stored in a sharable central database.
The words “we need a centralized database” often means more than just wanting to share data. Cobbler securely shares data with those users with a need to know – in real-time. Data becomes safer with protections to reduce error and cleanly add it to a central data store.
