Apache Hive ODBC Driver with SQL Connector Diagram

Apache Hive LogoSimba’s Apache Hive ODBC Driver efficiently transforms an application’s SQL query into the equivalent form in HiveQL. The Hive Query Language, a subset of SQL-92, allows Simba’s solution to interrogate Hive to obtain schema information to present to a SQL-based application. Queries, including joins, are translated from SQL to HiveQL. Market leaders such as Alteryx®, DataStax®, Hortonworks®, MapR® are powered by Simba standard based ODBC to enable Business Intelligence (BI), analytics and reporting on Hive-based data.

Hive is a data warehouse system for Hadoop that facilitates easy data summarization, ad-hoc queries, and the analysis of large datasets stored in Hadoop compatible file systems. Simba’s ODBC standardized solution enables standard SQL-92 access directly to Apache Hive distributions. It efficiently maps SQL to HiveQL delivering full SQL application functionality and real-time analytic and reporting capabilities to users.
