Why connect Tableau to BigQuery
Create a backup copy of your data
Use BigQuery as a place to store a backup copy of the data extracted from your Tableau views. Connect Tableau to Google BigQuery in a few easy steps without coding or installing unsafe third-party software. With just a few clicks, select a Tableau view to extract data from and a BigQuery table to load the data to. Enable the automatic data refresh and configure the frequency for scheduled exports of data to make your backup copy self-updating. Apply other features provided by the Tableau to BigQuery integration, such as selectable import mode, table schema autodetect, and others.
Compile data from multiple sources in one repository
Collect data from different sources including Tableau in your dedicated BigQuery projects as a single destination. Blend the data extracted from Tableau views with the information exported from other apps and files in BigQuery data sets or tables. Enhance your reporting by automating data flows from different sources to BigQuery and transforming the loaded data according to your needs. Build custom reports or dashboards based on the collected and compiled data from Tableau and numerous other supported sources.
Carry out advanced data analysis
Use the data exported from Tableau dashboards to make advanced queries in BigQuery. Form multi-sources datasets and analyze them to derive insights to make data-driven decisions. Leverage the Tableau data in making forecasts, building machine learning models, and using other analytics options of BigQuery. Integrate Tableau with BigQuery to schedule exports of data from your views instead of manually downloading CSV files every time you need to refresh your data.
