Hadoop is the platform of choice for many organizations that store, wrangle, and analyze rapidly growing unstructured data. Tableau empowers business users to quickly and easily find valuable insights in their vast Hadoop datasets.
Tableau removes the need for users to have advanced knowledge of query languages by providing a clean visual analysis interface that makes working with big data more manageable for more stakeholders. Business users can now explore and find value in their Hadoop data.
Native connectors make linking Tableau to Hadoop easy, without the need for special configuration — Hadoop is just another data source to Tableau. Bring data into a fast, in-memory analytical engine for rapid queries, or use a live connection to your own performant database. Tableau also simplifies working with XML files, unpacking and processing on the fly for true flexibility. We've got your back even if you work with query software like Impala and Hive.
Enhancing the Hadoop experience
Tableau’s solution for Hadoop is elegant and performs very well. This obviates the need for us to move huge log data into a relational store before analyzing it. This makes the whole process seamless and efficient.
