Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) today announced the general availability of Tableau 8.2, an update that brings Tableau to Mac users around the world and adds a feature to help people tell stories with their data. With Tableau 8.2, Mac users will have a fully-featured analytics application that lets them ask questions of their data. Story Points will allow everyone to create interactive, data-driven stories that they can share with their organizations, networks and the world.
“Mac users now have simpler and more seamless access to their data using this new version of Tableau Desktop. It’s specifically designed from the ground up to take advantage of the user interface and rich Retina displays that the Mac OS offers,” said Chris Stolte, Chief Development Officer and co-founder of Tableau Software. “Another key feature of this release is Story Points, which will help people add extra context, flow and guidance to tell a more structured story with their data.”
People are drowning in data – on the web, in spreadsheets and in databases. In order to take advantage of all of that data, people need to find new ways to harness it and unearth the insights that inform decisions. Tableau Story Points provides a vehicle to tell visually compelling, interactive narratives that bring insights and actions to life.
Customers using the Tableau 8.2 beta since April have this to say:
New Tableau 8.2 features include:
Tableau Desktop and Tableau Public on the Mac OS: The Mac version will have the same fast, visually compelling and powerful analytics capabilities available on Windows. It includes support for high-resolution Retina displays and both in-memory and live connectivity to data sources.
Story Points: People will now have the power to tell interactive stories with their data. This feature allows people to combine worksheets and dashboards into stories that remain connected to the underlying data and change as the data changes – or as the views and dashboards change. The stories can then be published to Tableau Server, Tableau Online and Tableau Public so that anyone can view and engage with them directly in a browser or on a mobile device.
Visual Data Window: Tableau 8.2 will include a redesigned data connection experience that will be simpler and more visual for users.
Updated maps: Maps are updated and redesigned to be more beautiful and engaging than ever before.
Tableau Server Improvements: Updates to the enterprise-class Tableau Server are designed to simplify administration and support for server deployments and make the end-user experience even more enjoyable.
