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 unrivalled research and development, and a deep connection to its community and customers, Tableau continues to release innovative analytics features that are recognised for ease of use and impact on 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.


Offer industry-leading modern analytics for everyone

Tableau has become the standard language of analytics for business users and analytics professionals – recognised by Forbes as one of the fastest-growing technical skills and one of the most valuable for higher compensation in data science professions.

From the individual analyst to your entire organisation, Tableau offers superior value with powerful analytics and industry-leading educational resources for all skill levels, allowing customers to scale their deployments at a lower total cost of ownership.

Tableau Creator, Explorer, and Viewer subscriptions help make sure customers have the right capability at the right price for everyone using Tableau. Casual data users have a clear path to move to more feature-rich offerings as their skills grow. And Tableau helps people learn and develop their data skills fast, elevating their decision-making and unleashing their creativity with data to increase their value to the organisation.

Provide flexibility and value at scale

Data-driven decision-making saves organisations money, leading to real, recognisable revenue, and increases the probability that future investments will be successful. Tableau not only offers a complete, integrated platform without hidden costs, but also the enablement resources to scale a data-driven culture that drives value through real business outcomes.

Choice and flexibility are Tableau philosophies, allowing customers to get the most value from their technology investments. Deploy Tableau on Linux or Windows, on-premises, in the public cloud, or as fully hosted SaaS, even embedded in web portals and applications. Tableau doesn’t require customers to license and connect a stack of products or disconnected tools to get the full value of a modern analytics solution.

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 with 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 visualisations are shared with the world by non-profits, journalists, bloggers, political enthusiasts and more through Tableau Public, which totalled 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 has committed to giving $100 million in software, training and grants between now and 2025 to support non-profits using data to move the needle on complex issues – from disease research and patient care to education and government spending.
