10 reasons to join the Tableau 10 beta

Update: Tableau 10 is here! Download now to try out the feature outlined below.

Spring is in the air. You know what else is in the air? The sweet smell of the Tableau 10 beta.

We are excited to announce the Tableau 10 beta is now available. Tableau 10 includes a brand new look and feel, and a host of new features to help you prep, analyze, and share your insights even faster.

Here is a preview of the 10 most exciting features coming in Tableau 10.

1. Cross-database joins

Disparate data can now be friends. Join data from different data sources like Excel and Oracle, and create an integrated data source in Tableau. You can also create a Tableau extract of this data source and publish it.

2. Tableau Mobile for Android

You asked and we delivered. Tableau Mobile is coming to Android phones.

3. Device Designer

We’re making it easier for you to share dashboards on any screen. With Tableau 10, you can design, customize, and publish a single dashboard with optimized views for tablets and phones. We’re also adding workbook-formatting control so you can change font styles across your entire workbook with a single click.

4. Global cross-database filters

With cross-database filters, a single filter can apply to more than one data source in a workbook. These filters make it easier to analyze data across multiple data sources.

5. Clustering

With Tableau 10’s powerful Analytics pane, you can do drag-and-drop cluster analysis. Use clustering to visually spot patterns and groups in your data.

6. Custom regions

Here’s a feature to make sales-planning a breeze. You can make maps of sales territories or regionally explore your data.

7. Web authoring

Stuck with just a browser? Don’t worry. You can do more on the web. Add published data sources and author dashboards right in the browser.

8. Data-source analytics

See what’s hot in your organization with data-source analytics. Monitor data-source usage stats at a glance, and favorite the data sources you use most.

9. Connectors

We're adding and improving our data connectors so you can start analyzing your data faster. Enjoy connections to Google Sheets, Quickbooks Online, Kognitio, memSQL, OData, and WDC 2.0 for web data.

10. Mobile device management

Deploy Tableau Mobile at scale. We’re supporting AirWatch and MobileIron for enterprise Tableau Mobile deployments.

Want to stay up to date on the latest from Tableau?

To help you plan for upcoming releases, we’ve launched a new Coming Soon website with more details on all planned Tableau 10 features. We’ll update the site throughout the beta period with more information, screenshots, and videos.

When will Tableau 10 be released?

We have a timeline for getting Tableau 10 out the door, but we’d first like to get solid usage in beta and fix any bugs. We want your feedback as early as possible to catch any issues and ensure the new features are great. The features included in beta and in the final version of Tableau 10 may change over time as we get feedback from beta users.

Want to join the beta?
