This YouTube tutorial shows you a handy way to load your Excel data to Cloudera Hadoop with Alteryx, and how to see and understand your data even faster with Tableau connected to Impala.
The same tool chain to load and access data can be used with Hive (eg. on Hortonworks) or Spark SQL (eg. on MapR). A overview on common data process technologies can be found in the Big Data jungle guide.
