We make products that help people see and understand their data regardless of how big or complicated.”

"These ground-breaking companies have outpaced their competition and are reinventing the way we do business today.”

“The companies on the Fast 500 list are among those that have demonstrated remarkable innovation, creativity and business savvy,” said Bill Ribaudo partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP and national TMT leader for audit and enterprise risk services (AERS). “As a result, these companies have continued to successfully forge ahead in a challenging economic environment. We applaud the leadership and employees of Tableau Software for this impressive accomplishment.”
