Part of Microsoft's Hadoop efforts include an ODBC driver for Hive, the Hadoop query engine, which will provide “direct realtime querying from business intelligence tools into Hadoop,” Leland said. The Azure Hadoop service and the Hive ODBC driver will be available in preview before the end of 2011, with a community technology preview for Hadoop on Windows Server arriving next year.

BI in the Cloud
Business Intelligence in the Cloud “psst…it’s about Data Mining” Lynn Langit Practioner, Author, Instructor
History (Better Reporting drives BI)Make OLTP more ‘readable’• Add indexes• Duplicate the data (‘the reporting database’)• Replicate or distribute parts of the dataWe can write T-SQL queries• We can train analysts to write great T-SQL• Client tools ‘mask’ (generate) T-SQLLet’s just give up and buy something• Proprietary, expensive and inflexible
Current State • I define my OLAP Let’s all • Maybe it’s a read-only copy of my OLTP –OR- OLAP • Maybe it’s a cube • Maybe it uses some data mining too • I’ll keep it on premisesIt’s my data • I’ll secure it, tune queries, back it up, etc. Data Mining • Too difficult, expensive, proprietary…. really?
Current State QuestionsWhy did this happen?When did this happen?Where did this happen?Who is responsible?What might happen to this one value in the future?Can you write me a report for…?
