    Unlock your HDF5 data and make it available to your users who are not hard-core programmers (e.g., business users, analysts, and engineers) who “just want to query the data” from their go-to analytics tool.

    The HDF5 ODBC Connector (Basic Edition) provides SQL-based interface for querying HDF5 data from within Excel, Tableau, R, SAS or any other analytic tool that supports the industry-standard ODBC interface. This software makes HDF5 data easily compatible with a much broader set of analytic tools, thereby reducing the cost of development, deployment, and operations for working with HDF5 data.
