High Level HDFS / Alteryx Question

Asteroid

Hi,

 

We receive large amounts of Excel data on a weekly basis and are looking to move our storage and ETL into Hadoop / HDFS.  At the same time we are trialling Alteryx.

 

My questions are :

 

A) can we use Alteryx to 'import/upload' these excel files to HDFS?

B) by using Hadoop's clustered processing power, run any Alteryx data preparation/processing routines?

C) write back our data to HDFS storage to be used by our analytics layer (eg, Tableau, Microsoft BI)?

 

Any high level advice appreciated!

Hi @fiorano,

 

Quick answers:

A) Yes

B) Yes, using IN-DB tools on Hive or Spark

C) Yes... this should be pretty simple

 

The longer answers though involve process. How are you loading the files? Into what structure?
