I work in IoT space and would like to know what people are using for visualization.
I deal with mostly time series data sent from sensors. It is stored in Parquet/ORC format in the cloud. I have Hive running to query this data (and give access to other people within company) and sometimes SparkSQL. I use Spark for ETL type of stuffs. However, missing piece of the puzzle is visualization.
A lot of non technical people inside the company want to query and visualize this data, which means:
- Programmatic approach to visualization (like jupyter notebook) is out of question as these users are mostly non technical.
- Many traditional viz tools don’t seem to work with Big Data (eg. PowerBI)
I thought connecting to Hive/Hadoop/Spark and doing visualization was pretty standard however I can’t seem to find them. Given my setup, what tools do you recommend (can be commercial, FOSS).
PS: I checked Apache Superset (https://github.com/apache/incubator-superset), which looks really cool but docs on integrating Hive is lacking.
