Each data view answers a different class of questions.

The data source for the SharePoint Integration Data Source Server supplies individual views for the following object types:

Irrespectively of the data type, the data view “no-data” is provided for each object. This is used if no immediate data is needed for a transformation and the existence is sufficient as a basis.
