Huong Nguyen, QA Engineer at Tableau, sent these notes after watching Abhi Mehta of Tresata and Robert Morton of Tableau discuss big data, Hadoop, and Tableau.
When Elephants Rule introduces the Apache Hadoop/Hive from Cloudera connector to Tableau.
Abhi Mehta of Tresata on Hadoop and the power of big data.
One of the most powerful examples of working with big data was showing home pricing data, and then drilling down to the state, county, city, neighborhood, and finally the street level while retaining the rich visualization and data presentation. After really hyping up the promise that Hadoop brings, he handed it off to Robert to do a live demo of Tableau working with Hive.
Here's an earlier recording of Robert's same Tableau and Hadoop demo.
