    scheduled extraction question

    Charles Brown

      I am completely new to Tableau, and the analytics domain in general. 


      I've been asked to design a small solution to do a daily extract of Google Analytics data and push it into a Netezza database. The expectation is a Java app to POST to GA, convert resulting JSON to CSV, and then SQL INSERT into Netezza. 


      Can I do this within Tableau instead?

          Hi Charles,  Tableau is a read-only application.  It will never insert data into a data source.


          Tableau will take extracts of data and then make available for analysis within Tableau offline, but it will not be able to dump the info into Netezza.


          I'm sure there is a ETL tool out there somewhere that can help.
