It provides you great flexibility in importing and syncing critical data with Odoo.

What databases can Odoo connect with?

The best news is that you can connect to practically any database with Odoo. In this video we use a powerful library that allows you to not just connect to remote databases but also provides easy to use record set utilities for navigating the data. This avoids having to handle messy CSV files and write code that can be quite difficult to read without lots of commenting.
