We’re thrilled to announce the new Tableau Connector for MarkLogic, providing a fast, easy, real-time connection to full Tableau functionality, now available on Tableau’s connector extension gallery. It enables you to unearth the value in your data with MarkLogic’s integration, search, governance, and built-in curation capabilities and the dynamic visual analysis and reporting of Tableau.
Analytics plays a vital role in any organization and today it is insufficient to run traditional analytics over structured data. It is also critical to get deeper insight into fast-changing unstructured data. This often proves to be challenging:
MarkLogic solves the challenge of integrating data so that organizations have a complete picture of their business and can answer more complex questions faster:
After integrating and ensuring quality data, it’s vital to easily access that data with the tools organizations are already using. Tableau has been at the forefront of data visualization and data analytics, and is one of the most popular tools. Their mission to help organizations become more data-driven with intuitive, visual analytics is augmented with the benefits of MarkLogic.
Organizations don’t always know what data is useful or what insight they’re looking for. MarkLogic quickly brings together all the data, curates it, and ensures quality so that the data provided for analytics is correct. Tableau provides the visualization and dashboards for organizations to find new insights buried in your data and allows you to share and communicate the value across the organization.
And it’s never been simpler to access the data in MarkLogic. Tableau Connector for MarkLogic works on Mac, Windows, and Linux and is built on top of PostgreSQL’s open-source ODBC driver. Developed on top of the Tableau SDK, the Tableau Connector for MarkLogic offers reliability and ease of connection for business analysts, data engineers or anyone who needs to provide data downstream to end users. Instead of searching through unofficial connectors, manually configuring an ODBC connection and solving connection issues, users can get data from MarkLogic into Tableau with a few clicks.
With the new MarkLogic Connector for Tableau, users can download the connector, move the downloaded taco file to the “My Tableau Repository” folder, start Tableau and select the MarkLogic connector under the “Connect” tab and that’s it. This reduces friction in getting your data to Tableau and your data users can immediately start analyzing the data.
Organizations want to make use of their data and MarkLogic is simplifying access to curated quality data first with PowerBI and now with Tableau. Together MarkLogic and Tableau work together to enable intelligent, data-driven decisions.
Organizations strive to maximize the value they can accrue from their data. This value is most realized when a business can access all of their data — they rearrange it, synthesize it, and query it to discover new insights and achieve the “360° view”, which enables them to check KPIs and make operational decisions that affect positive business outcomes. MarkLogic is a leading solution to integrate, govern, and curate all your data, not just your structured data. With the MarkLogic Connector for Tableau, it’s easy to get all of your data into a leading BI tool – giving analysts the complete picture.
