Tableau Software Wins CODiE Award for Best Business Intelligence Solution

Visual Analysis Solution Tableau Desktop is Recognized by Peers in Prestigious Awards Program

SEATTLE, Wash. – May 29, 2008 – Tableau Software®, the global leader in fast analytics and visualization software, today announced that it was named the “Best Business Intelligence or Knowledge Management Solution” by the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) at its CODiE Awards Gala.

“Everyday businesspeople use Tableau’s visual data analysis tools to help them see and understand data – our customers include people who do not necessarily have the highly technical business intelligence training and skills required by other solutions,” said Christian Chabot, CEO and co-founder of Tableau Software. “We believe that this award is a testament to the need for this type of pervasive technology, and we’re especially honored to have received this recognition from our peers.”

The CODiE Awards holds the distinction of being the only peer-recognition awards program of its kind in the industry, providing a unique opportunity for companies to earn the praise of their competitors. The CODiE Awards program, now in its 23rd year, remains the standard-bearer for celebrating outstanding achievement and vision in our industry.

Tableau Desktop connects directly to a wide assortment of data sources, integrating data exploration and visualization to make analytics fast and easy for nearly anyone of any experience level. Also available are Tableau Server provides Web-based sharing and collaboration capabilities, and the company’s free Tableau Reader, which enables anyone to use and benefit from visual analysis. Tableau’s products have already attracted more than 10,000 licensed users in companies from one-person businesses to the world’s largest organizations.

"The 2008 CODiE Awards recognize those companies providing the best new technology products and services across a broad array of industries," noted SIIA President Ken Wasch.
