-<p>The functionality and sheer usefulness of Drill is growing fast.  If you&#39;re
a user of some of the popular BI tools out there like Tableau or SAP Lumira, now is a good
time to take a look at how Drill can make your life easier, especially if  you&#39;re
faced with the task of quickly getting a handle on large sets of unstructured data.  With
schema generated on the fly, you can save a lot of time and headaches by running SQL queries
on the data where it rests without knowing much about columns or formats.  There&#39;s
even more good news:  Drill also works with data stored in the cloud.  With a few simple steps,
you can configure the S3 storage plugin for Drill and be off to the races running queries.
 In this post we&#39;ll look at how to configure Drill to access data stored in an S3
bucket.</p>

 <p>If you&#39;re more of a visual person, you can skip this article entirely and
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8gZ2nn_ZUQ">go straight to a video</a>
I put together that walks through an end-to-end example with Tableau.  This example is easily
extended to other BI tools, as the steps are identical on the Drill side.</p>

+<p>Hadoop has always been a powerful platform, but it is even more so with the release
of Apache Drill, a valuable technology for self-service data exploration on big data. For
BI users, this is really exciting news. </p>
+
+<p>With Apache Drill, you can immediately query complex data in native formats, such
as schema-less data, nested data, and data with rapidly-evolving schemas. And with analytic
tools likes Tableau, you can easily create queries, build dashboards and explore data. </p>
+
+<p>Want to learn how to leverage Apache Drill in order to get better analytical insights?

+
+&lt;p&gt;Hadoop has always been a powerful platform, but it is even more so with
the release of Apache Drill, a valuable technology for self-service data exploration on big
data. For BI users, this is really exciting news. &lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;With Apache Drill, you can immediately query complex data in native formats,
such as schema-less data, nested data, and data with rapidly-evolving schemas. And with analytic
tools likes Tableau, you can easily create queries, build dashboards and explore data. &lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Want to learn how to leverage Apache Drill in order to get better analytical
insights? &lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Join us on Twitter&lt;/strong&gt; for a one-hour,
live SQL-on-Hadoop Q&amp;amp;A, next &lt;strong&gt;Wednesday, December 17th starting
at 11:30am PST, 2:30pm EST&lt;/strong&gt;. Use the &lt;strong&gt;hashtag #DrillQA&lt;/strong&gt;

-&lt;p&gt;The functionality and sheer usefulness of Drill is growing fast.  If you&amp;#39;re
a user of some of the popular BI tools out there like Tableau or SAP Lumira, now is a good
time to take a look at how Drill can make your life easier, especially if  you&amp;#39;re
faced with the task of quickly getting a handle on large sets of unstructured data.  With
schema generated on the fly, you can save a lot of time and headaches by running SQL queries
on the data where it rests without knowing much about columns or formats.  There&amp;#39;s
even more good news:  Drill also works with data stored in the cloud.  With a few simple steps,
you can configure the S3 storage plugin for Drill and be off to the races running queries.
 In this post we&amp;#39;ll look at how to configure Drill to access data stored in an
S3 bucket.&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;Jeff Feng is a Product Manager at Tableau and leads their Big Data product
roadmap &amp;amp; strategic vision.  In his role, he focuses on joint technology integration
and partnership efforts with a number of Hadoop, NoSQL and web application partners in helping
users see and understand their data.&lt;/p&gt;

behind the MusicMatch (now Yahoo Music) and Veoh recommendation systems, he built fraud detection
systems for ID Analytics (LifeLock) and he has issued 24 patents to date. Ted has a PhD in
computing science from University of Sheffield. When he’s not doing data science, he
plays guitar and mandolin.&lt;/p&gt;

 &lt;p&gt;If you&amp;#39;re more of a visual person, you can skip this article
entirely and &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8gZ2nn_ZUQ&quot;&gt;go
straight to a video&lt;/a&gt; I put together that walks through an end-to-end example
with Tableau.  This example is easily extended to other BI tools, as the steps are identical
on the Drill side.&lt;/p&gt;
