Tableau is the undisputed leader in data visualization software. Tableau is a listed company with a market cap over $6B. The company was founded 2003 for the purpose of commercializing research work which was conducted at Stanford university between 1999 and 2002. Tableau is capable of querying many different types of data sources and combining them into one. The application is so sophisticated that it can take data in almost any form and automatically figure out the best way to visualize it, thus allowing even non-experts to work and explore complex multi dimensional data sets.
The company recently took its on-premises server solution and adapted it into a hosted cloud solution, Tableau Online – now the company’s fastest-growing product. Joe Specht, Sr. Director of Systems Infrastructure from Tableau will walk through how the Tableau team made it happen.
