Big Data

Data is increasingly becoming a key differentiator between wildly profitable and struggling businesses. Exploring and analyzing data translates information into insight. However, the massive scale, growth and variety of data are simply too much and too expensive for traditional databases to handle. For this reason, businesses are turning towards Big Data technologies such as Hadoop, Spark and NoSQL databases to meet their rapidly evolving data needs. Tableau works closely with the leaders in the Big Data space to support any Big Data platform that our customers choose. Tableau lets you find that value in your company’s Big Data and existing investments in Big Data technologies, so that your company gets the most out of its data.

Enhancing the use of Big Data in your organization

Analytics for all of your data

Tableau empowers people throughout the organization to answer questions of their data, large or small, in real-time. The more questions they ask, the more value they extract from the data, leading to smarter business decision every day. Since Tableau works seamlessly with Big Data databases in addition to more traditional databases, you can have one interface into all of your data. This makes Tableau itself the best “Tableau for Big Data” tool.

Light up your Big Data

No matter what kind of Big Data you’re using, from various Hadoop distributions to NoSQL databases to Spark, Tableau integrates seamlessly with your infrastructure. And while Big Data can be inherently messy and complex, the ecosystem around it is quickly evolving to enable you to structure that data for easy exploration or accelerate the performance of the NoSQL and Hadoop databases so they feel much more like the traditional databases that you’re used to.

Maximum business impact

Big Data platforms enable you to collect, store and manage more data than ever before. Previously unseen patterns emerge when we combine and cross-examine very large data sets. These patterns contain critical business insights that allow for the optimization of business processes that cross department lines.

Consolidate and democratize data

Tableau reduces the need to pull individual reports from multiple software or databases. See it all in one place and discover new patterns you might never have seen using separate individual reports. Furthermore, explore this data through the eyes of your entire organization, allowing for more questions to be asked and more discoveries to be made.

Big Data analytics for any business

Whether your data is in a spreadsheet, a database, a data warehouse, open source file systems like Hadoop, or in all of those, you need the flexibility to quickly connect to data and consolidate it. Learn the best practices for approaching big data and how to utilize it to its fullest potential.
