Cloudera and Tableau

Tableau allows you to connect to CDH in minutes. Once connected, you can do ad-hoc visualization of the data so you can see patterns and outliers. You can’t get value from your data unless you can see what’s inside of it.

Cloudera and Tableau Extend the Usability of Apache Hadoop

Tableau connects to CDH through Hive using Cloudera’s ODBC driver. Connecting to Hadoop is as easy as connecting to any other data source from Tableau, with no additional setup or programming required. This puts the powerful capabilities of Hadoop into the hands of anyone who wants to analyze data. 

Tableau makes it easy to perform sophisticated visual analysis without having to write any code, while allowing more advanced users to take full advantage of Hive capabilities. A connection to Hadoop from Tableau is visually displayed as a series of fields that you can drag-and-drop to visualize the data relevant to the analysis.
