    About Big Data Analytics and Regular Analytics

    Gouri Sankar S

      I had learnt that Tableau now had deviced product for handling big data analytics.

      So can we have two different parallel systems providing data to tableau - one from regular warehouse - say star schema and another from the new hadoop environment.


      Can the users have the access to the analytics seamlessly with the new hadoop environment data added to the existing architecture. More detailed way of putting my question..


      How does tableau expect the data to be provisioned to it? Do we need to integrate the data from both environment to a rdbms data or entirely to hadoop? can we have a dimension to be picked from warehouse table - say product and say campaign from hadoop? Is that really possible?


      Is Tableau hadoop and regular analytics product co-exist and gel well as a single product for user? Is the metadata shared across these products?
