Actian JDBC

Tableau Connector Plugin to Actian Data Platform, a fully managed hybrid data warehouse that runs on-prem and across multiple cloud platforms, including AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. Actian Data Platform is designed from the ground up to deliver high performance at scale across all dimensions – data volume, concurrent user, and query complexity – at a fraction of the cost. This connector offers enhanced SQL support and works with Actian’s OLAP and OTLP databases.
