AWS S3 Connector for Tableau Unlocks Data Insights for Better Decision Making

AWS S3 Connector for Tableau Unlocks Data Insights for Better Decision Making

Today at Tableau Conference, Salesforce and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced an integration between Tableau and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). The AWS S3 connector for Tableau provides customers with quick and simple access to unstructured data stored in AWS S3 directly from Tableau, improving the flow of work and driving greater efficiency and better decision-making.

Significance: Forty-one percent of business leaders find their data complex and hard to access, making it difficult to make data-driven decisions. Unstructured data in particular does not have a predefined format, making it even harder to understand and process.

The AWS S3 Connector for Tableau is powered by Hyper technology, Tableau’s in-memory data engine. It speeds up data ingesting and analytical query processing, and makes it easier to access and analyze unstructured data from S3 and gain insights directly in Tableau.

Innovation in action: With the addition of the AWS S3 connector for Tableau customers can:

  • Derive insights from existing data formats: Customers can access data from several file types and glean insights as-is, without changing the format, delivering analytics faster while maintaining cost
  • Analyze data from multiple sources: Users can quickly access and visualize data directly from S3 at scale from various file types including Excel, CSV, CSV Compression, and Parquet, providing joint Tableau and AWS customers with critical insights that enable better decision-making.
  • Keep analysts in the flow of work: Joint customers can discover and share insights across organizations with ease and efficiency directly from S3, without having to leave their Tableau

In addition, Tableau and AWS offer connectors for Amazon Redshift, Amazon EMR Hadoop Hive, Amazon Athena, Amazon Aurora, and Amazon DocumentDB.
