Submission + - Microsoft, Hortonworks to link Excel and Hadoop->

swandives writes: Microsoft is developing a connector that will allow Excel users to download and analyze output from Hadoop, potentially opening the open-source data processing platform to a much wider audience.

Microsoft is working on the connector with Hortonworks, a Yahoo spinoff that offers a Hadoop distribution and commercial support services. The connector was among several Hadoop-related open-source projects that Microsoft and Hortonworks announced at the O'Reilly Strata Data Conference, being held this week in Santa Clara, California. The two companies formed a partnership last year to adapt Hadoop to the Windows ecosystem.
