Tableau just wrapped up their very successful customer conference a couple of weeks ago. One of the big news from that event that I’ve been waiting for is their announcement surrounding Google BigQuery.

This will be available in next year’s 8.0 release. Francois provided more details about this at his blog.

We have been working closely with both Google and Tableau to make this happen. Some of you may have noticed that we announced a connector at Strata NY back in October.

If you are working with BigQuery and are wondering how to use it from your existing desktop tools, by all means take a look at what ODBC can do for you.
