Hadoop brings scale and flexibility that don’t exist in the traditional data warehouse. Using Hive as a data warehouse for Hadoop to facilitate easy data summarization, ad-hoc queries, and the analysis of large datasets. Although Hive supports ad-hoc queries for Hadoop through HiveQL, query performance is often prohibitive for even the most common BI scenarios.

A better solution is to bring relevant Hadoop data into SQL Server Analysis Services Tabular model by using HiveQL. Analysis Services can then serve up the data for ad-hoc analysis and reporting. But, there is no direct way to connect an Analysis Services Tabular database to Hadoop. A common workaround is to create a Linked Server in a SQL Server instance using HiveODBC which uses it through OLE DB for ODBC. The HiveODBC driver can be downloaded from here.
