Google BigQuery pivot table reports

Google BigQuery can be used as a data source with SQL-compatible database connector and Simba ODBC driver.

There are no any limitations on the dataset size and in this you can get reports by billions-size datasets in the near real-time. See this youtube video where 1.3Gb data is aggregated by BigQuery in seconds and displayed as pivot table by SeekTable.
