  • Integration – BigQuery can be used from Google Apps Script(e.g. as a bound script in Google Docs), or any language that can work with its REST API or client libraries.

Trivia :

  • After a limited testing period in 2010, BigQuery was generally available in November 2011 at the Google Atmosphere conference.
  • In 2014, MapR introduced the Apache Drill project, which was meant to solve similar problems.
  • BigQuery provides an external access to the Dremel technology, a scalable, interactive ad hoc query system for analysis of read-only nested data.
