Gary Player, a great golfer of the 1960's and 70's, once said "The harder I work, the luckier I get". Tableau just had some good luck based on the hard work of our development team (who work hard to listen to customers). In the last 10 days, we were honored to win or be finalists for 3 different awards. In addition to winning the Network Products Guide Award for Product Innovation in Business Intelligence, we were selected as a finalist for the American Business Awards (the "Stevies"). And, just Tuesday we learned we won a CODiE award for Best Business Intelligence/Knowledge Management solution.
Sponsored by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the CODiEs are particularly meaningful to us because it's a peer-reviewed award. Industry experts selected the finalists from over 1,100 nominations. Then members of the SIIA (over 650 organizations strong) voted on the finalists.
We are very honored and pleased to have won these recognitions. So we'll keep doing what we do - which includes listening to our customers and engaging in large measures of hard work.
