Hadoop and Big Data

For rapidly growing, unstructured data, Hadoop is the platform of choice for many organizations, enabling them to store, process, and analyze petabytes of information. Tableau empowers business users to quickly and easily find valuable insights in vast Hadoop datasets. 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 connect directly to your own performant database. Tableau also simplifies working with XML files, unpacking and processing on the fly for true flexibility. It even works with popular query software such as Impala and Hive.
