Introducing a faster, easier way to embed Tableau into products, applications, and portals
Integration is on the business agenda, and for good reason. A study by Mulesoft this year found that organizations risk losing an average of $7 million if they don’t complete their digital transformation initiatives, and it cites lack of integration across disparate apps and systems as problem number one. The solution lies with the use of reusable building blocks, like APIs, that make it easier to connect the dots.
It’s one more way Tableau helps businesses deliver insights to everyone where they need it—within the context of their work.
- Efficiencies through the use of web components for initialization, so you can add Tableau analytics to your web pages and trust that they will behave the same across modern browsers
- Faster time to market with low-code development that takes only two lines of code to embed an interactive Tableau visualization—four for the authoring experience
- Faster load times and a better customer experience with faster Bootstrap and consistent initialization events
- Availability via a globally-distributed content delivery network (CDN) for more nimble development
Fresh experiences, robust capabilities
The Embedding API v3 powers fresh experiences for end-users who use your products, web applications, and portals. Here are a few Tableau features you can embed with the new API today:
- Seamless and secure authentication between your app and Tableau with Connected Apps
- Self-service analytics from within your application with Embedded Web Authoring
- Custom Context Menus that enable users to take action on data insights without leaving your app
In the coming months, we’ll add support for more Tableau features to make the Embedding API v3 more robust, including pagination for data access and support for Ask Data. Want to be first to know? Join the Tableau developer program and get notifications of future developer previews.
