Publish Date: 2015/01/13

Tableau Software, a global leader in easy-to-use, rapid-fire business analytics software, today announced that it has been placed among the top broad-use BI vendors in a survey from KLAS Research. The report, published in December, 2014 and titled Healthcare Analytics Performance: The Data Deluge, ranks Tableau first in ease-of-use and notes high satisfaction with Tableau from customers in the healthcare industry.

KLAS Research is an analyst firm that helps healthcare providers make informed technology decisions by reporting on the performance of vendors and products. Its most recent healthcare analytics report is based on independent feedback on vendors from 463 healthcare providers.

To develop its report, KLAS cites the hands-on experiences of healthcare providers. Respondents called Tableau one of the simplest visual analytics products to use and praised the visualization capabilities, speed, quick installation times, and strong value of Tableau Server. Feedback from Tableau customers includes:

  • “Tableau Server is a wonderful product because of how easy it is to use. People can start using it as soon as it is installed. If people can use Excel, they can probably use Tableau easily. It is just very intuitive and simple. It is easy to create different views of the data. Tableau Server is quite a remarkable product.”
  • “It seems like Tableau Server is the tool that is talked about most often by business folks who aren’t traditionally data people. By using the product they kind of turn into data people and business analytics people. There is not as much technology in healthcare as there is in other industries, and Tableau Server is like an entry point that helps healthcare people and organizations become more data drive.”

“Healthcare providers today have a wealth of data available to them,” said Elissa Fink, Chief Marketing Officer at Tableau Software. “Tableau helps healthcare firms get critical business insights from their data faster and more simply than ever before. It’s exciting to see people’s successes with Tableau validated in this report.”
