Subject Re: ODBC drivers for Hive 2
Date Fri, 11 Mar 2016 00:06:49 GMT
The problem with Tableau is that it tries to optimize the code itself which
really does not work for something that uses generic ODBC 3. We used to
have it with Tableau connecting to Oracle TimesTen IMDB (that did not have
its dedicated ODBC driver in Tableau so had to use ODBC 2, even an older
version). I am sure until Tableau knows how to optimize the query for Hive,
it would not really work. Optimizing joins in Hive etc at the moment I am
not sure.

I checked Tableau connectivity but they seem to suggest drivers from
Hortonworks and Cloudera and also their propriety Hadoop tools.
