This new functionality will enable existing Tableau users to undertake

  • Improving Tableau’s big data strategy by providing support for large unstructured data sets
  • Improved data integration, data transformation, data aggregation and data blending
  • Richer analytics, such as k-means clustering and window functions
  • Tableau Hyper will also extend the hybrid data model.
  • Unification of analysis and transactional systems

Hyper will also retain connectivity to the 50 or so data sources that Tableau supports in version 10 – this covers disparate data source such as Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery, Snowflake, and SQL 2017 server.
