Date 2012/12/18 13:23:39 | Topic: Product News

MarkLogic Corporation, provider of the MarkLogic® Enterprise NoSQL database, and Tableau Software, the global leader in rapid-fire business intelligence software, announced a partnership that delivers world-class analytics and visualization over unstructured Big Data. As a result, business users can now harness the power of Tableau's award-winning business intelligence and reporting solutions to access disparate data sets of structured and unstructured data stored in a MarkLogic database.

MarkLogic's data and analytics are made available to Tableau via an industry-standard SQL API over ODBC (Open Database Connectivity).  MarkLogic 6 is an Enterprise NoSQL database for building reliable, scalable and secure Big Data search and analytics applications, quickly and easily. It's the only database that offers real-time performance and massive scalability over operational Big Data, structured or unstructured. MarkLogic features full-text search, real-time alerting, and an array of analytic capabilities such as co-occurrence and in-database MapReduce.

The out-of-the-box ODBC driver for SQL connectivity to Tableau added to MarkLogic 6 makes it easy to integrate Tableau and MarkLogic. Specific benefits include:
* Gain new insights from Big Data: rich interactive analytics dashboards based on all data, in real time, improve decision-making
* Leverage existing tools and skills: using MarkLogic and Tableau together requires no additional training, and allows customers to reuse existing report templates and avoids the need for custom integration
* Simplify IT infrastructure: now you don't need to maintain and synchronize separate stores for unstructured Big Data and for analytics -- you can store, manage, query all your operational Big Data in MarkLogic and create interactive visualizations directly on that data
