Cloudera-certified InfoCaptor, adds native Impala functionality within Visualizer so users can leverage Date/time functions for date hierarchy visualizations, time series plots and leverage all the advanced hierarchical visualization natively on Cloudera Enterprise.

"This is a great promise for the big data world and affordable analytics with sub-second response time, finally CEOs and CIOs across industries can truly dream of cultivating a data driven culture and make it a reality."
