Google BigQuery

by Mar 10, 2015


As Aqua Data Studio has added support for some diverse databases lately, I thought it would be worth asking if you would consider support for Google BigQuery? BigQuery uses an SQL-like language, and its data model is sort of extended-relational. It supports "nested columns", which one can use to model hierarchies. But queries generally flatten results to tabular form. So I think it fits the Aqua Data Studio product fairly well.

In fact, using…/ I was able to set up a connection in Aqua Data Studio using ADS's generic JDBC support. But it would probably be even nicer if ADS supported some of BigQuery's native features directly.

What do you think?
