How To Integrate Tableau and Hadoop with Hortonworks Data Platform

Chances are you’ve already used Tableau Software if you’ve been involved with data analysis and visualization solutions for any length of time. Tableau 6.1.4 introduced the ability to visualize large, complex data stored in Hadoop with Hortonworks Data Platform via Hive and the Hortonworks Hive ODBC driver.

If you want to get hands on with Tableau as quickly as possible, we recommend using the Hortonworks Sandbox and the ‘Visualize Data with Tableau’ tutorial.

Additionally, Tableau have partnered with us to produce these two fantastic resources to assist with integrating their tools on HDP.
