The GoodData platform is a cloud-based end-to-end analytics tool for capturing and loading data from numerous and diverse data sources and then enabling users to build metrics, create reports and dashboards.
Google BigQuery is one of the supported data sources and you can easily integrate it into your GoodData workspace.
This integration does not use your BigQuery resources for computation. Instead, GoodData synchronizes data from BigQuery based on a user-defined schedule and serves as the last-mile analytics platform.
The following diagram illustrates the concept of BigQuery-GoodData integration. Your BigQuery data are loaded by GoodData Automated Data Distribution (ADD) into your workspace for processing by the Logical Data Model (LDM). Then you will use the processed data to create insights.
The following tutorial will guide you through the process of completing BigQuery-GoodData setup and using GoodData. To get familiar with the processes and user interface, we recommend that you start with loading our sample data first and then using them to build your first insights.
