In this latest post from our tutorial rumble, Sanjeev Aggarwal guides you through integrating TARGIT with Apache Cassandra via DataDirect ODBC.
TARGIT is a business intelligence solution with dashboards, analytics, reporting and a data discovery platform that is accessible on all devices and platforms. Apache Cassandra is a NoSQL open-source distributed database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers, providing high availability with no single point of failure.
As an organization, you want to feed as much relevant data into your business intelligence solution as possible in order to come up with more informed decisions/predictions. However, currently TARGIT does not offer any native connectivity to Cassandra.
Luckily, Sanjeev Aggarwal has developed step-by-step instructions on how DataDirect ODBC can help you easily integrate your Cassandra data with TARGIT and make it look like any other relational database. While this guide is for Cassandra, these steps can also be applied to any of the data sources on our ever-expanding list of ODBC connectors.
Download the free 15-day trial of the DataDirect ODBC driver for Cassandra. TARGIT BI is a 64-bit application, so download the 64-bit driver and create a 64-bit data source.
Schema Tool Note: The DataDirect Cassandra driver will automatically generate a schema for you without you having to open up the Schema Tool.
Click on "Test Connect" and ensure that your connection is established.
