This new version 13.2, will allow you to build a mechanism to automatically add business data to Google BigQuery tables using only standard features.
Google BigQuery is a cloud service that stores big data and is capable of analyzing it at high speed.

As Google BigQuery is also used by large companies such as UPS, Inc., Twitter, Inc., and Toyota, many companies are working on the use of big data.
Starting with the new version 13.2, Business Processes will incorporate the ability to add data to Google BigQuery tables. You will be able to build a mechanism that is, for example, in the Order Fulfillment Process on an e-commerce site, data such as customer name, order details, order date and time, shipment time can be automatically added to the orders record table of Google BigQuery after the shipping process is processed. You can achieve this just by making configurations, and no coding is necessary.
