Couchbase Analytics

by Couchbase Analytics


The Couchbase Analytics Tableau connector provides familiar and secure native Tableau connectivity so that you can quickly visualise and analyse your operational JSON data. It uses Couchbase Analytics tabular views to annotate your data with type and relationship information for Tableau and provides an easy-to-use SQL-based interface to support your analytics-driven query needs. This connector works with Couchbase Server v7.1 and later.
