As new and different types of data are introduced in an organization, data teams end up with a growing patchwork of disparate technologies and systems to manage and integrate. This means your teams spend more time setting up connections, checking access controls, and monitoring performance than surfacing insights to business analysts.
That’s why we are excited to introduce the new one-click connector to Tableau Cloud that’s coming soon to Starburst Galaxy. This will eliminate additional connectivity tasks like manually passing through server hosts, usernames, and ports. It will also improve productivity for data engineers and allow customers to create interactive dashboards on their modern data lakes faster than ever.
