Web and Mobile Authoring
Drag-and-drop analytics, now in the web and on the go. We took the breakthrough technology of Tableau Desktop--the ability to visually ask questions of data without writing any code--and ported it to the web. Edit existing charts and graphs to answer new questions and iterate on existing dashboards. Start completely new workbooks with published data sources on Tableau Server.
All of this is available on mobile devices too. Query hundreds of millions of rows of data, as much as you have, using just your fingers.
On the web, on a mobile device, on the go. Analyze your data, whenever, wherever. And still no scripting required.
Deep Visual Analytics
It's important to always build features that enable customers to ask deeper questions of their data, and build them with the same easy-to-use philosophy. That's why new deep analytical features--like visual grouping, cohort analysis, powerful set creation, forecasting and advanced data blending--can all still be done with your mouse.
Create visual groups and sets simply by selecting them with a mouse. Do cohort analysis, compare the ins and outs of a set, or forecast any timeseries data into the future in one click. Built completely fresh views with the new treemap in 'Show Me.'
Data blending also got a huge boost in functionality. Now, combine data sources without having to use the linking field in the view itself, giving you more flexibility over how to blend your data sources together.
Cloud Data, Any Data
Data is moving to more places and diversifying at an even faster pace. Today you even see data sources in the cloud. And wherever your data goes, we'll be there. In Tableau 8.0, we introduced our first suite of native cloud data connectors to Google Analytics, Google BigQuery, Salesforce and Amazon Redshift. These connectors work just like any of our other native connectors and have been optimized to take full advantage of each data source's capabilities and characteristics.
And for data not in the cloud, we added a Data Extract API to allow anyone to create Tableau Data Extracts, without even opening up Tableau.
Speaking of Data Extracts, we've made them smaller and faster, even with the same amount of data.
We also added a host of other features, such as subscriptions which allow you to get an email of the view on a regular basis. Data source filters allow one data source to be available to all, while automatically granting access to parts of the data based on the user. New admin views provide a picture of how people are using Tableau Server and which content is popular.
These additions mean you can implement Tableau Server as a central part of your business and allow everyone to make data-driven decisions with ease.
Fast, All Around
Since technology moves fast, so do we. We took advantage of the latest graphics cards enhancements and translated them into faster visual rendering of your data. We rewrote our rendering engine so we can show you millions of data points at a time at blazing speeds.
For Tableau Server and Tableau Public views, we also moved a lot of the rendering work into the web browser for faster and smoother interactions with your dashboards. Both products can also now load all of the items in a dashboard at the same time, instead of one at a time, resulting in faster load times all around.
