Oracle Apache Hadoop Hive ODBC Driver For OBIEE
Posted by sranka on July 3, 2013
Last few months have been a crazy ride, wrapping up on new opportunities and getting upto speed on Hadoop took all the free time away . During my read on Hadoop , I always wondered why we dont have out of the box ODBC driver? I tried using out of the box ODBC driver given by HortonWorks and it worked up to certain extend but running using cloudera was a challenge. Finally to the sigh, with 220.127.116.11 Oracle has introduced Oracle Apache Hadoop Hive ODBC Driver For OBIEE.
So far extracting the data using Hadoop have never been a challenge, but using the data to make sense out of it has been a constant challenge. With this integration, there would be some amount of relief with the existing investment people have made in OBIEE. Hive’s SQL dialect, called HiveQL doenst support the full SQL-92 specification, please refer 18.104.22.168 Metadata Repository Builder’s Guide for not supported features.
For details on where to start please refer 22.214.171.124 Metadata Repository Builder’s Guide. For importing the metadata from Hive you will have to download ODBC driver from oracle support web, for details please refer DocID 1520733.1 .
In coming weeks I will be working more on Big Data approach and Solutions.
Hope this helps
