Build Dynamic Tableau Dashboards Using Live Couchbase Data

Using the CData ODBC Driver for Couchbase, enterprises can unite the powerful visualization and reporting features of Tableau with their Couchbase NoSQL data stores to build dynamic dashboards based on live Couchbase data. Thanks to the innovative features of the CData ODBC Driver, users can work with a relational model of non-relational Couchbase data, unlocking a seamless experience with live Couchbase data in Tableau.

The CData ODBC drivers offer unmatched performance for interacting with live Couchbase data in Tableau due to optimized data processing built into the driver. When Tableau issues complex SQL queries to build its visualizations, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Couchbase, freeing up local resources and easing the processing burden on Tableau. With built-in dynamic metadata querying, you can visualize and analyze Couchbase NoSQL data using the exact data types that Tableau expects.
