There are currently only two options for extensibility in Tableau:
- Custom ODBC driver
- Web Data Connector
Which way to go totally depends on what sort of hooks does Trillium provide.
Thanks Dmitry. In this case it would be a custom ODBC connector. Any idea how I can approach this? Is this even possible?

If you're interested in building out a custom ODBC driver, look here: http://www.simba.com/drivers/simba-engine-sdk/
Many of the data sources represented by named connectors in Tableau are built with this SDK, and you can trial it out to see if it'll work for you. You should be able to get a PoC reading into Tableau in 5 days or so.
