Flexible connectivity, integration and extensibility
We give customers the greatest range of options for how to deploy and what data to securely connect to.
Tableau native data connectors
Connect to all of your data – no matter where it resides. Tableau offers native connectors built and optimised for many databases and files – from spreadsheets and PDFs to big data, cube and relational databases on-premises or in the cloud, even application data or data on the web.
Tableau partner ecosystem
"We needed a tool that could take all of that great data and information and allow us to turn it into an insight. Now, with what we’ve created with our logical data warehouse and Tableau, people can collaborate and all of that information is accessible."
Data science integrations
Analytics extensions help make your statistical and predictive models accessible to more people. Extend Tableau calculations to dynamically leverage popular data science programming languages, tools and platforms – including R, Python, MATLAB, and more.
Dashboard application integrations
With our Extensions API, developers can create dashboard objects that enable customers to integrate and interact with data from other applications directly in Tableau. See what other developers and partners have built in the Extension Gallery.
Put interactive analytics directly in people’s workflows by embedding Tableau into custom web portals, applications and customer-facing products. Learn more on our Embedded analytics product page.
