Fragmented, disparate backend data systems have become the norm in today’s enterprise, where you’ll find a mix of relational databases, Hadoop stores, and NoSQL engines, with access and analytics tools bolted on every which way. This mishmash of options presents a real challenge when it comes to choosing frontend analytics and visualization tools.
How did we get here?
