Seamlessly Deploy, Integrate & Scale

Your BI tool should not dictate your data and analytics strategy. Choose Tableau and deploy where you want, on-premises, public cloud, or SaaS. Connect to the data you have, wherever it’s stored. Scale fluidly as your business grows. And easily share insights with the right people—whether they sit within your organization or not.

Deployment flexibility

Deploy wherever you want: on premises, in the public cloud, or choose our fully managed service. However you deploy, Tableau will integrate with your preferred technology vendors. Reuse your existing data infrastructure to cut costs and timelines. Tableau fits into your existing people and process workflows, with minimal retraining and onboarding required. Tableau has direct connectors optimized for all major database and data application platforms, as well as advanced analytics integration with R and Python.

Fast to Deploy

Tableau is the only analytics platform you can fully deploy to thousands of users in less than a day. Choose Tableau Online and your users can be analyzing, sharing, and collaborating in mere minutes. With Tableau Server you can install, configure, and provision users in less than an hour.

Embedded analytics

Whether you want to share analytics with internal users, external contractors, or the public at large, we have the platform and tools you need. Tableau analytics can be easily embedded in SharePoint, Salesforce, or custom HTML portals for secure access by any authorized user. Our extensive API’s let you create a custom-tailored experience for each of your users. And if you’re monetizing your data and would like to OEM Tableau for your customers, we have that option as well.

Scale up and out

Size your deployment for today's needs, then easily scale up or out as your usage expands. Transition to newer hardware easily or add more nodes for increased redundancy and capacity. Our licensing is designed to give you the most flexible scaling experience; add capacity by adding user licenses or by adding more hardware and CPU cores. Tableau Server can support up to a hundred users per core and scales linearly.
