In order to connect to Teradata you need access to the Teradata instance (ex: userid and password). It's quite straightforward, you can connect to data through the icon on the top right, or CTRL+D. Teradata is near the bottom of the connections list. You can connect to a single table, multiple tables (join), or custom SQL.
Thanks for the response. However, I am looking for solutions to connect tableau with hadoop. I also want to know teh performance of tableau after its connection to hadoop?
A lot of documentation here, need to install drivers, run some commands in Hive, etc
One caveat is that you cannot allegedly run on a Windows XP environment...at least that's what my IT folks tell me.
Thanks a lot Ben!. I will go through those links.
