Apache Zeppelin

Apache Zeppelin is web-based tool which supports data analytics and visualization. Unlike other tools, it does not require any separate programming environment to design the queries and reports. Apache Zeppelin has the concept of web-based notebooks. In the notebooks, you can perform a wide variety of programing and query tasks. It also offers you a few ready-to-use charts that let you visualize the data quickly with the help of simple graphs and pie charts.

Apache Zeppelin can read data from many data backends, such as Hive, Postgress, and Cassandra. To connect with a data processing back end, you need a Zeppelin interpreter. Zeppelin comes with several interpreters that can be used to create web-based notebooks. In this section, we will test drive Zeppelin.
