Services and integrations
You can extend the functionality of the platform by provisioning other services and components, and integrating with other cloud platforms.
Provision instances of services and components from the Services catalog. Add service instances and components to the IBM Cloud account to add functionality to the platform. You must be the owner or be assigned the Administrator or Editor role in the IBM Cloud account for Cloud Pak for Data as a Service to provision service instances.
Integrate with other cloud platforms. Allow users to easily create connections to data sources on those cloud platforms. You must have the required roles or permissions on the other cloud platform accounts.

To integrate with data sources, you can create many types of connections to work with a broad array of data sources. Refer to Connecting to data behind a firewall to create secure connections for data sources that are not externalized to the internet.
