Announcing the DataStax ODBC Driver for Hive

By Robin Schumacher -  December 4, 2012 | 0 Comments

We’re pleased to announce the availability of the DataStax ODBC Driver for Hadoop / Hive. Our new driver conforms to the standard ODBC 3.52 standards, which practically means you can use it to connect to a DataStax Enterprise cluster from many open source and proprietary BI, query, and ETL tools (e.g. Microsoft Excel, Tableau, MicroStrategy, etc.), and work with data in Hive.

To see our new ODBC driver in action, we have a new tutorial posted on our articles page that walks through the driver’s installation and setup, and shows how to use it with Microsoft Excel. The driver is also explained and detailed in our online documentation.

Installation of the DataStax ODBC Driver for Hive is quick and painless, so visit our drivers download page now and give it a try.
