With Google’s extensive reach, it is likely that your organization uses one or more of their services. Tableau integrates seamlessly with the entire Google Cloud Platform to ensure maximum efficiency for all of your analytics needs. Google's Cloud Platform is the enterprise solution of choice for many organizations with large and complex data problems. With Tableau, any user can visually explore that data in real-time. Tableau captures the entire spectrum by connecting natively to Google Analytics, Google Adwords, Google BigQuery, and Cloud SQL to analyze billions of rows in seconds without writing a single line of code. With no need to move data to in-memory storage, you can analyze data in-place to take full advantage of Google’s cloud computing capacity, providing an end to end analytics solution.
