Karabina Solutions, the winning Microsoft Gold Certified BI partner is excited to announce a partnership with Tableau Software. Tableau is one of the fastest growing business intelligence companies in the world, posting 94 percent bookings growth in 2011, its eighth year of record bookings. Used by more than 7,000 organisations worldwide, Tableau delivers fast analytics, visualisations and rapid-fire business intelligence. The additional front-end visualisation tool from Tableau complements Karabina Solutions’ existing strong business intelligence practice. Says Ryan Jamieson, CTO at Karabina Solutions, ‘Tableau enables customers to rapidly gain valuable insight into data from flat files, databases, warehouses and cubes. Tableau's visualisations bring information to life in captivating new ways that are quickly customised for different business decision makers and scenarios’.

David Ives, GM of Karabina Solutions adds ‘We specifically looked for a rich data visualisation tool that leverages our investment in Microsoft technologies. We love the fact that Tableau is open unlike other proprietary in-memory data visualisation tools. It simply means clients are able to quickly compile and analyse large volumes of data from nearly any data source in minutes and then create interactive data visualisations, dashboards and analytics. It talks to our goal to help professional decision makers see and understand their data’.

“We are pleased to add Karabina to our growing family of regional Partners,” said Suzanne Hoffman, Director of Channel Sales at Tableau Software. “The Tableau Partner Program enables us to provide prospective customers with access to talented business intelligence implementation leaders so they can quickly and easily analyse, visualise and share information.”
