Google Launches BigQuery Tools For Big Data
Google added two features to a project it calls BigQuery, giving users new ways to work with data, according to Ju-kay Kwek, Google's BigQuery product manager. The first, BigQuery Connector for Excel, makes it easier to execute queries using Microsoft Excel. It takes advantage of Excel’s standard Web query feature to eliminate manually importing data and running queries directly in Excel. The other tool allows users to designate a query as a batch query and it will complete within a few hours. Kwek provides the pricing model for the service.
