Tableau Software, the global leader in rapid-fire business intelligence (BI) software, has recently named international BI/IT consulting firm, InterWorks, Inc., as the inaugural Tableau Gold Partner within Tableau’s extensive worldwide partner program. As a Tableau Reseller and Certified Training Partner, InterWorks has been an integral partner with Tableau for the last five years, providing exemplary training and consultation to clients from educational institutions, government agencies, and organizations ranging from small businesses to the most reputable Fortune 100 companies around the world.

InterWorks’ Advantage and Support for Tableau:
InterWorks began business in 1996 focusing on IT infrastructure solutions, but quickly expanded into web strategy, software development and business intelligence. Having a diverse and deep knowledge, combined with optimal experience, the InterWorks team has proven to be a very capable provider of BI, IT and business solutions for organizations of any size or industry.
InterWorks started its affiliation with Tableau in 2007 and quickly became an avid evangelist of the power of data visualization with Tableau. Focusing on Tableau user training and consulting, InterWorks’ BI team has grown to be one of the largest and most experienced Tableau support teams in the industry.
Tableau is fast and easy but client data isn’t always neat and clean. InterWorks contributes to client success by helping them achieve excellent outcomes quickly, and by implementing strategies that sustain high levels of user-adoption of Tableau Software in the client’s organization. InterWorks provides comprehensive data solutions, from data architecture to industry leading Tableau consulting and training for organizations looking to advance and capitalize their BI investment. InterWorks’ business intelligence services encompass: Tableau best practices training, dashboard design, data warehouse design/implementation, performance tuning, ETL solutions, integration strategy, ad hoc analysis, enterprise reporting, and data assurance.
InterWorks Director of Business Intelligence, Dan Murray, reflects on the rapport InterWorks has built with Tableau, its users and the industry: “I’ve been working with Tableau for six years and joined InterWorks in 2008 because together we understand the capabilities of this ground-breaking data visualization tool. We came to the space understanding the value Tableau Software provided because we successfully deployed Tableau as a customer first. We realized very early in Tableau’s evolution that the tools it was creating were important and had the potential to become industry standards. InterWorks wanted to make a meaningful contribution to the success of both Tableau Software and its customers. Tableau is going to lead the way and our team is dedicated to advancement of the movement. We are proud to be associated with Tableau Software.”
Data visualization with Tableau is just the beginning – organizations need to know how to implement the right program customized to their business’s needs, how to involve teams properly, optimize data, increase performance and maximize the potential of the software. Through consulting and training, InterWorks collaborates with these organizations to move them into self-sufficiency.
In 2012, InterWorks leveraged software development experience and produced a customized Tableau Performance Analyzer tool, which has over 500 downloads to date, and has been praised by Tableau Software and the customer community. The Tableau Performance Analyzer plugin is free to download on InterWorks’ website.
In addition, the InterWorks team has assisted with starting (3) Tableau User Groups in North America and actively participates in monthly user group meetings by donating consulting time for presentations. Further, the diverse team of BI consultants, analysts, developers and network architects work to regularly publish supplemental Tableau/BI wisdom to its blog to assist users of varying experience. Tableau users searching for answers to questions, insider knowledge, video tutorials and dashboard design expertise, turn to the InterWorks blog for solutions. The team of BI experts are continually involved with the Tableau community, Tableau user groups nationwide, and Europe-based training/events. InterWorks is also the Silver Sponsor for this year’s highly anticipated Tableau Customer Conference in San Diego.
In reaction to the growing data market, InterWorks has expanded its operations vastly in recent years. In addition to its centralized headquarters in Oklahoma, the company has added divisions in the U.S. on both east and west coasts, and founded its international branch in Europe.
Kelly Wright, Senior Vice President of sales at Tableau Software says, “InterWorks has been and continues to be an exemplary partner and advocate for the best practices using Tableau Software. Through their direct and indirect efforts, InterWorks, Inc. has contributed millions of dollars in Tableau Software sales within industry, government and the education markets since becoming a Tableau Partner.”
