Service Description

Tableau Software is an American interactive data visualization software company focused on business intelligence. It was founded in 2003 in Mountain View, California, and is currently headquartered in Seattle, Washington.[3] In 2019 the company was acquired by Sales force for $15.7 billion. At the time, this was the largest acquisition by Sales force (a leader in the CRM field) since its foundation. It was later surpassed by Sales force's acquisition of Slack. The company's founders, Christian Chabot, Pat Hanrahan and Chris Stolte, were researchers at the Department of Computer Science at Stanford University. They specialized in visualization techniques for exploring and analyzing relational databases and data cubes, and started the company as a commercial outlet for research at Stanford from 1999 to 2002. Tableau products query relational databases, online analytical processing cubes, cloud databases, and spread sheets to generate graph-type data visualizations. The software can also extract, store, and retrieve data from an in-memory data engine. Tableau products include:  Tableau Desktop  Tableau Server  Tableau Online  Tableau Prep Builder (released in 2018)  Tableau Vizable (consumer data visualization mobile app released in 2015)  Tableau Public (free to use)  Tableau Reader (free to use)  Tableau Mobile  Tableau CRM Functionalities: Tableau has a mapping functionality, and is able to plot latitude and longitude coordinates and connect to spatial files like Esri Shapefiles, KML, and GeoJSON to display custom geography. The built-in geo-coding allows for administrative places (country, state/province, county/district), postal codes, US Congressional Districts, US CBSA/MSA, Area Codes, Airports, and European Union statistical areas (NUTS codes) to be mapped automatically. Geographies can be grouped to create custom territories or custom geocoding used to extend existing geographic roles in the product.
