8. Big Data Integration and Analytics Made Easy
Whether a data scientist, analyst, executive, or operational worker, big data is available for exploration via self-service tools, dashboards, custom apps, or analytical documents. WebFOCUS extends its support for big data with new adapters for Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery, and MariaDB. New adapters also support EXASol, IBM i JDBC, Apache Phoenix, and MapR/Apache Drill, enabling high-speed access to big data. This allows Hadoop to be used directly as an analytical source, eliminating the need to move big data out of the repository.
