This multi-part tutorial demonstrates how to get instant data warehousing and reporting in place using Amazon Redshift and Tableau.  Once your data is available in Redshift, begin Reporting within Tableau by utilising the out of the box Redshift data connector.

If you don’t have an Amazon Redshift account, shuffle along here http://aws.amazon.com/redshift/ where your friendly Amazon people will take your credit card and only charge after a generous number of trial hours are used up.  Likewise you can commence a free Tableau trial here http://www.tableau.com/products/online where you get access to publish to the Tableau cloud reporting portal, and utilise the Tableau desktop tool to author reports for either Windows or MAC.

  1. Hi Peter, Thanks for your post – have you worked on any enterprise implementations of a similar nature, and does BCIG have some expertise around Amazon Redshift services…?
