When it comes to Tableau Online, the desktop users benefit the most from it. Tableau Online is highly secured for data visualizing and it is limited for editing of workbooks, dashboards, and visualizations. The management tools of Tableau give its users the control over everything from user permissions to data source connectivity and the visibility they need. Tableau naturally fits within the needs of the business so that they can easily scale from small teams to full organization.
Starting from a small office in Seattle, today Tableau has spread its wings across the world. It has offices in U.S., UK, Singapore, Japan, Australia, and China. The users of Tableau Software range from large corporations to sole proprietors. Some of the top companies which are transforming their business and seeing dramatic results with Tableau belong to Automotive, Banking, Insurance, Manufacturing, Media and Entertainment, Business Service, Communications, and Education sectors. While facing competition with the leading business intelligence companies like IBM, SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft, Tableau has managed to obtain a unique position in the market. Although initially the software was not accepted by the IT professionals, it has now strived to emerge in the era when the leading BI companies are already enjoying their success. Since the launch of its first initial public offering in 2013, raising 250 million dollars, the company has never looked back. In the past seven years, Tableau has seen a tremendous growth of 82 percent in its sales. In the near future, the company has plans to extend its products into data preparation and improving in-memory data processing. Further, they envision including data-audit capabilities, introducing ‘instant analytics,’ delivering natural-language processing (NLP) query capability, and offering threshold-based notification-triggering.
