Connect to NetSuite CRM and ERP data for visual analysis and reporting. With features like intelligent rowscan, type detection, relationship exploration and support for unstructured data, the NetSuite Connector allows you to seamlessly analyse your NetSuite data in Tableau.

Connector contains an embedded SQL Engine that pushes supported SQL operations to the data source and processes unsupported operations client-side (Query Folding): - Issue complex queries using SQL-92 compliant operations and clauses. - Leverage server-side data processing for supported operations. - Build new relationships and custom datasets.

Connector supports bulk operations, push-down, client functions, aggregation and advanced TLS/SSL data encryption.
