MarkLogic Connector for Tableau provides a fast, easy, real-time connection to full Tableau functionality. It enables you to unearth the value in your data with MarkLogic’s integration, search, governance, and built-in curation capabilities, and the dynamic visual analysis and reporting of Tableau. It’s available on Tableau’s connector extension gallery.
Developed on top of the Tableau SDK, the Tableau Connector for MarkLogic offers reliability and ease of connection for business analysts, data engineers, or anyone who needs to provide data to end-users downstream.
MarkLogic Connector for Tableau works on Mac, Windows, and Linux and is built on top of PostgreSQL’s open-source ODBC driver. Users can download the connector, move the downloaded taco file to the “My Tableau Repository” folder, start Tableau and select the MarkLogic connector under the “Connect” tab, and that’s it. This reduces friction in getting your data to Tableau and your data users can immediately start analyzing the data.
Alternately, you can still connect to Tableau via REST for visualizations of unstructured hierarchical data sources.
