Flexible connectivity, integration, and extensibility
We give customers the greatest options for how to deploy and what data to securely connect to.
Tableau native data connectors
Connect to all of your data—no matter where it resides. Tableau offers native connectors built and optimized for many databases and files—from spreadsheets and PDFs to big data, cube, and relational databases on-premises or in the cloud, even application data or data on the web.
Tableau partner ecosystem
"We needed a tool that could take all of that great data and information and allow us to turn it into an insight. Now, with what we’ve created with our logical data warehouse and Tableau, people can collaborate and all of that information is accessible."
Embed or extend Tableau to do more
Tableau helps you bring more powerful analysis to more people with extensibility and embedding capabilities. You can even integrate other applications into Tableau dashboards.
Data science integrations
Analytics Extensions help make your statistical and predictive models accessible to more people. Extend Tableau calculations to dynamically leverage popular data science programming languages, tools, and platforms—including R, Python, MATLAB, and more.
Dashboard application integrations
With our Extensions API, developers can create dashboard objects that enable customers to integrate and interact with data from other applications directly in Tableau. See what other developers and partners have built in the Tableau Exchange.
