Publish Date: 2014/09/09

Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA), a global leader in rapid-fire, easy-to-use business analytics software, today announced that its global OEM Partner program added seven new valued partners including Premier, Inc., Redzone, Vocera Communications, CI&T, LeanKit, N2N and PostUp. By partnering with Tableau, these independent software vendors (ISVs) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers gain the ability to integrate, co-brand and embed Tableau’s powerful and easy to use data visualization software into their own products. Many of these new partners along with dozens more existing ones are participating in the annual Tableau Conference. The event this week in Seattle, has attracted a sold-out crowd of over 5,500 customers, partners and data enthusiasts from around the globe.

Tableau’s OEM program provides a flexible and cost-effective visual analytics platform for ISVs and SaaS companies that are looking to quickly add analytical and data visualization functionality to their products,” said Paul Greenspan, Director of OEM Sales, Tableau Software. “This program was originally created in response to strong demand from the ISV community, and the continued growth we are seeing is strong validation that our OEM Partners are achieving continued success from the program.”

Tableau’s OEM program solves a common problem faced by software product vendors: They often want to embed fast analytics and easy reporting into their applications, but they find conventional business intelligence applications heavy, expensive and hard to use. By becoming an OEM partner, ISVs can quickly embed Tableau’s visual data analysis tools into their application suites, achieving rapid time to market with a solution that lets end-users create rich analyses and share their insights with colleagues in seconds.

Companies participating in the OEM program can offer Tableau products to their customers in a co-branded fashion featuring the complete functionality of Tableau solutions. Participating ISVs, both on-premise application developers and SaaS/Cloud providers, benefit from flexible pricing and distribution models, including subscription programs and unlimited distribution options.

Recently signed Tableau OEM Partners include:

Premier, Inc. is a leading healthcare improvement company, uniting an alliance of approximately 3,000 U.S. hospitals and 110,000 other providers to transform healthcare. With integrated data and analytics on one in three U.S. hospital discharges, Premier helps healthcare providers acquire, integrate, and analyze information across their health system. Premier recently launched PremierConnect® Enterprise, a comprehensive data warehouse and business intelligence platform that automatically acquires and integrates healthcare provider data to deliver analysis-ready information and self-service analytics, so providers don’t have to spend time managing IT infrastructure and data feeds. Self-service data visualization within PremierConnect Enterprise is powered by Tableau.

"We looked at a number of different analytics solutions and Tableau was by far the most intuitive and easy to use,” said Sean Cassidy, General Manager of Enterprise Provider Analytics at Premier. “When it comes to analytics, we want our members to feel confident, self-sufficient and arrive at value fast. Tableau helps us accomplish that."

Redzone provides the first mobile and social enterprise software for Food Manufacturers to drive continuous improvement and workforce productivity.

Vocera Communications empowers integrated, intelligent communication in healthcare, hospitality, energy and other mission-critical mobile environments. The Vocera Care Experience solution is a comprehensive approach to improving the healthcare experience by creating seamless communication and coordination across the entire care continuum. To monitor and manage patient experience, Vocera Care Experience provides customers with an intuitive analytics tool powered by Tableau, which provides real-time access to data, organizational trends and performance dashboards. With Tableau’s visual analysis tools, hospitals can track their patients’ experience from current and prior stays across the health system, at the facility-level, or drill down by unit or patient population to understand root cause of readmissions, patient satisfaction levels, service recovery issues, and care team workflow.

“With Tableau, Vocera Care Experience delivers more meaningful analytics, reports and dashboards. We use it to track operational performance and measure the impact of patient experience strategies such as nurse leader rounding, recorded discharge communication, and post-hospitalization follow-up calls,” said Arun Mirchandani, Senior Vice President of Products at Vocera. “Partnering with a company like Tableau has helped us deliver on our promise to provide industry leading communication solutions in crucial situations.”

CI&T is a different kind of technology company, taking its name from the founding principles of collaboration, innovation and transformation. CI&T is headquartered in Campinas, Brazil, with offices across Latin America, North America, Europe and Asia. Using progressive technologies including web, mobile, social, cloud and predictive models, CI&T builds scalable enterprise applications with an added layer of intelligence, allowing companies to dramatically improve customer engagement in the digital world and employee decisions for the business areas.

“In the early days of Analytics Information Systems development, a flexible and user friendly interface was not considered a priority from the start, merely an added bonus at the end of the process,” said Rubens Paes Barreto, Head of Analytics and Big Data at CI&T. “Clearly so much has evolved in a short time and these attributes are both pervasive and expected by the end user today. Tableau has long been a leader in the diagnostic analytics space and when CI&T built an end-to-end big data and analytics product, we knew Tableau was the ideal partner to offer these attributes to our customers.”

LeanKit is helping to change the way organizations work by enabling better work execution and collaboration through visualization. LeanKit makes software that harnesses the innate human preference for consuming information visually. LeanKit is the most powerful Kanban tool available for visually tracking, managing, and executing the fast-paced work flow required by technology and business delivery teams. Using LeanKit, teams can map their own processes on virtual whiteboards to gain a complete and transparent look into status, issues and updates. With the flexibility to support any process or workflow model, LeanKit allows teams to work collaboratively on a shared process.

"The foundation of LeanKit is built upon the concept that people have an innate desire to process information visually,” said Stephen Franklin, CTO at LeanKit.” With Tableau, we found a partner whose strengths align perfectly with our own. By embedding Tableau into our offering we are now able to provide our customers with the same power of advanced visualizations at the aggregate level to compliment the visibility that we provide at the operational level."

N2N is focused on technology innovation in the education sector. The Student Success Platform for Higher Education includes comprehensive tools to support enrollment management, student retention and learning remediation. N2N uses Tableau as an integrated reporting and data visualization tool for the company’s cloud based Learning Media Platform, Integrated Student Information System and Student CRM products.

“While N2N was comfortable with the flexible and comprehensive data model we have designed for higher education, we realized that developing reports and dashboards using conventional BI tools on the market was a very difficult task for a company of our size,” said Kiran Kodithala, CEO at N2N. “After conducting thorough research, we have decided to use Tableau for all our data visualization and reporting needs. Integrating Tableau into our product stack is a perfect fit for the higher education and N2N in particular.”
