Dan’s motivation for joining Tableau is clear. “I want to change the way people think about data. Data analysis doesn’t have to be hard, scary, and left to specialists. Everyone has a thirst to understand and a desire to explore. And add to that making it so easy to share and weave data-centric stories, and Tableau is really helping people to further their understanding and get the (data) stories out. Those stories can change the world.”
