We can do an “api call” or something similar to the Platform instead of storing the data in SF

-we are currently sending all the Invoices from the Platform to Salesforce (via the famous web-service)
-by having those invoices in SF, we can create reports
-but could we report on those invoice by simply doing an “api call” or something similar to the Platform instead of storing the data in SF (ie instead of duplicating in SF the data that is in the Platform)?

Hi,
So Salesforce Connect is an AppExchange product? Need to install it?

Hi Imo,

No its not an AppExchange product.
Salesforce Connect is a framework through which you can access and modify data outside saelsforce(like ERP).
You don't need to duplicate entire data in Salesforce.
