Introduction

The Connector is at the core of the ManagementStudio platform allowing the movement of data from various Endpoints across an IT ecosystem. The Connector enables the transport and transformation of data from systems such as Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), SNOW, Lakeside Systrack, Active Directory (AD) etc. It allows an administrator to focus more on developing business logic, and less on connectivity details. Once the Connector is set up, it will automatically check for and retrieve new information on a daily basis or on the frequency specified.
