Joint Solution Overview
Easy-to-use business intelligence for Apache Hadoop
Cloudera and MicroStrategy have collaborated to develop a powerful and easy-to-use BI framework for Apache Hadoop by creating a connection between MicroStrategy 9 and CDH. This connection is established via an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) driver for Apache Hive and is available as the Cloudera Connector for MicroStrategy.
The connector allows business users to perform sophisticated point and clickanalytics on data stored in Hadoop directly from MicroStrategy applications – just as they do on data stored in data warehouses, data marts and operational databases. Users can run queries via MicroStrategy’s visual interface without the need to write unfamiliar HiveQL or MapReduce scripts. In essence, any user, without programming skill in Hadoop, can ask questions against vast volumes of structured and unstructured data to gain valuable business insights.
