Tableau Integration with Trifacta

Trifacta has announced deep integration with Tableau. Tableau users now have the option of writing the output of Trifacta data transformations directly to a Tableau Data Extract format.

Trifacta provides Tableau users with an intuitive Data Transformation Platform for Hadoop so they can more efficiently transform and analyze common data formats in Hadoop

The integration between Trifacta and Tableau removes a key barrier between the raw, semi-structured data commonly stored in Hadoop and the self-service process for analyzing, visualizing and sharing of insights provided by Tableau.

Working with big data poses specific challenges. The most significant barriers come from structuring, distilling and automating the transfer of data from Hadoop.
