Here are six reasons why leading brands choose Tableau


People prefer Tableau’s intuitive visual analytics

With Tableau, you analyse as you visualise, keeping the focus on your questions, not the software. Our customers tell us this ability to stay in the flow of analytics is a huge factor in why they choose our product.

And in Tableau, there are no limits to the amount of data you can analyse. In fact, Hyper, Tableau’s new data engine technology, is designed to handle large, complex data sets. Read to see how customers rate Tableau for user satisfaction and success.

So what does it mean to be a Leader?


Deliver customer-centric innovation—fast

Tableau has been disrupting the BI industry with customer-focused innovation since its founding in 2003. With unrivaled research and development and a deep connection to its community and customers, Tableau continues to release innovative analytics features that are recognized for ease of use and impact to real-world customer needs.

Tableau builds visual best practices, artificial intelligence, and machine learning capabilities into the core of its products to make powerful analytics easier for everyone. This includes smart recommendations for database joins and prep cleaning steps, drag-and-drop advanced analytics like clustering and forecasting, and natural language interaction that understands the user intent and the context of the data.


A flexible platform to fit your data strategy

We support you no matter what your data strategy is: on-premises, on the public cloud, in our fully-managed cloud platform, on Windows or on Linux.

With 67 native data connectors, you can access data from virtually any source – from databases like Microsoft SQL Server and Vertica to cloud applications like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google BigQuery. Connect directly to your database for real-time insights or with data extracts powered by Hyper. Your platform should work with your data, regardless of where that data lives.





Customer-focused innovation that drives value

Since our founding, Tableau has revolutionised how people interact with data.

We listen to customer needs and deliver innovative technologies that make it easier to find insights in large data sets. In the last year, Tableau delivered over 100 new capabilities – including the Hyper data engine, PDF connector, geocoding improvements and viz in tooltip – with four robust releases that help customers do more with data. We’re making headlines with natural language processing, machine-learning-enabled data preparation and more.

Celebrate the passionate, giving data community

Through its community forums, 500 worldwide user groups, and events like the annual Tableau Conference, more than 1 million passionate, diverse, and engaged users provide one another valuable support to grow, succeed, and celebrate data. Such a community, unlike any other in enterprise software, helps to speed up time to market and ensure lasting engagement.

The community is also a force for doing good with data. More than 12,000 new visualizations are shared with the world by nonprofits, journalists, bloggers, political enthusiasts, and more through Tableau Public, which totaled more than 1.5 billion views last year. Through a partnership with PATH, Tableau and its community have helped drive a 90% reduction in malaria-related deaths in southern Zambia. And Tableau Foundation committed to giving $100 million in software, training, and grants between now and 2025 to support nonprofits using data to move the needle on complex issues—from disease research and patient care to education and government spending.
