It’s always nice to be recognized by the national media. To be named the “2007 Application of the Year” by Computer Reseller News is both flattering and a nod to our Engineering team’s vision and skill. But what I like best about this is that CRN used “BI” and “breathtakingly simple” in the same sentence when describing Tableau. You don’t often see this in industry product reviews. In fact, business intelligence software is generally perceived as “heavy,” “hard,” and “expensive” by most people.
We see the future of business intelligence using imagination and creativity. In fact, adjectives like “simple,” easy,” and “beautiful” are core tenets at Tableau. Thankfully, our customers have responded very positively to this.
Tableau Software is attracting a new generation of data workers who simply expect more from BI applications. We understand this and it informs everything we do. Thanks to CRN for the recognition.
