To make a report, drag and drop columns. Apply grouping, aggregation, sorting and formatting . Then apply style for finishing touches. Parameters are displayed on the right pane. To make a chart in QuickDesigner, simply pick a data source. Apply column mapping.  Choose a chart type. Then apply desired chart options to finish. The Online Map Builder now supports OpenStreet maps and MapQuest in addition to Google Maps. It supports heat map as well as drilldown by drawing a circle or rectangle to encompass multiple locations for drilling down. SVG maps now supports dynamic images based on parameter in the dashboard.
All products share the same data source management code which can access Big Data sources such as Hadoop/Spark, MongoDB and Amazon Redshift .
The products are written in pure Java and run on all platforms that support Java.  All commercial Application Servers such as WebSphere, Oracle WebLogic App Server, JBOSS, GlassFish, Tomcat are supported. Data sources can come from all JDBC compliant databases, Hadoop, MongoDB, Amazon Redshift, Java classes, XML files, WSDL SOAP.

October 5, 2015 - Quadbase Supports Hadoop Data Source

We are very pleased to announce the support for the popular Big Data platform, Hadoop, Hive and Spark. You can now use Quadbase’s Espress family products to visualize, report and analyze virtually unlimited volume of data with ease and high performance and superb scalability.

Apache Hadoop is an open-source software framework that enables the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of commodity servers. It provides massive storage for any kind of data, enormous processing power and the ability to handle virtually limitless concurrent tasks or jobs, with a very high degree of fault tolerance and readily scales up to thousands of server. Running in conjunction with Hive and Spark, the user can use standard SQL syntax to retrieve data. With Spark’s in memory algorithm, performance can be up to 100 times faster than Hadoop’s two-stage disk-based MapReduce approach.

It is easy to setup connections to Hadoop data source. Configuration including Hive and Spark is required. A JDBC drive that supports this configuration is bundled with the products. Choose Hadoop data source in the data registry and specify the driver and URL with the following format:

JDBC Driver class name: com.cloudera.hive.jdbc4.HS2Driver
URL format: jdbc:hive2://<Servername>:<Serverport>/<Databasename>

Once this is set up, the user will be able to make queries and build reports/charts, dashboards seamlessly in the same way as using any supported database sources.

A dashboard example accessing data from Hadoop is here.
