MEDIA ALERT: Tableau Expands Cloud Capability for Asia Pacific Customers with New Regions in Japan and Australia
SINGAPORE - 02 JUNE 2020 - Tableau Software, the leading analytics platform, announced that it has launched two new regions in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) for the fully hosted SaaS offering, Tableau Online. These new regions will provide customers with enhanced performance and new choices in data locality. Located in Tokyo, Japan, and Sydney, Australia, these are Tableau’s first regions in APJ and fifth worldwide including the United States and Europe, serving cloud-based analytics to new and existing Tableau Online customers across APJ.
“Given the current climate, which is changing how we work and how businesses operate, many organizations are accelerating their shift to the cloud. We have a large base of Tableau Online customers in APJ, and a growing call for local regions. As we continue to listen to our customers and deliver on their needs, the new APJ regions will enable us to better support them through their journey to the cloud,” said JY Pook, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific & Japan, Tableau.
The launch of the new regions in APJ helps reduce the distance between a customer's data and their analytics service. The strategic placement in APJ reduces latency, with shorter load times and faster extract refreshes for customers. In line with Tableau’s commitment to strengthen data protection for all customers, the regions make it easier for customers to comply with regional data residency regulations.
“Tableau Online — our analytics platform fully hosted in the cloud—is a fast-growing area of our business and we continue to expand our capabilities to meet our customers’ needs. Our investment in these two new regions in APJ will allow more and more customers to migrate their analytics to the cloud and help with their business transformations,” said Tom Walker, Executive Vice President, Cloud, Tableau.
“Airtasker rapidly deployed Tableau Online in a cost-effective way, with little internal engineering support, highlighting the ideal pace and seamlessness our suppliers need to model to propel us forward. Tableau's flexibility and ease of data exploration have enabled Airtasker to make sense of our data in a way that was previously not possible. We make more data-informed decisions as a result,” said Dan Gooden, Data Lead, Airtasker.
The regions are now available to both new and existing Tableau Online customers, who have the option to select their preferred location when setting up their Tableau Online site.
