Exciting Week At Tableau Software

By Elissa Fink 2007/11/07
Many exciting things occurred this week at Tableau Software... We debuted Tableau Server – a web-based sharing and collaboration product that extends data discovery, analysis and collaboration across organizations. Check out the press release and our featured highlights.
  • Desktop users can publish dashboards and workbooks securely in real-time with just a few clicks
  • Server users can search, filter, sort and view data with just a browser
  • Everyone can post comments, tag views and participate

We released v3.5 of Tableau Desktop. New features include improved visual styles and even faster performance.

We have made available a FREE application called Tableau Reader. We like to think of it as “Acrobat for Data” and its release is based in part on the influence of our newer Board Member, Adobe Chairman and Founder Chuck Geschke. Once installed, this application allows anyone to immediately start viewing and interacting with Tableau packaged workbooks. Check out our Visual Examples for download information and several packaged workbooks.

We revamped our brand identity, with a new logo and look-and-feel. This new identity better expresses Tableau’s attributes: authentic, personal (not corporate), easy-to-use, clean, smart, and personal. Response so far has been enthusiastic. Your thoughts? I'd love to hear them.

In keeping with the new brand, we upgraded our website. You’ll find deeper content and more surfacing of the content that users care about. This includes a new Learning Center and v1 Community Center. Again, feedback is welcomed!

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. As always, we welcome your feedback.
