The key to survive in the fast lane is quick discernment of diverse information. Tableau Software is one such analyst tool in the cloud, which may help you to grasp pivotal information about any business intelligence. The Seattle-based company's information is well researched, authenticated, and insightful—allowing you to make informed decisions regarding your venture. Tableau is one of the fastest growing cloud analytics companies, with big ticket brands like the ACT (standardized test organization that gauges students’ readiness for college) and JetSuite (a private jet carrier) using its cloud-based product, Tableau Online.
It will be worthwhile to mention here that Tableau Online has hit the 1000 accounts milestone within a mere nine months since its launch. With both large and small companies using it, Tableau Online is the company’s fastest growing product.
So what actually makes it work for so many diverse clients? To Jet Suite, Tableau Online provides an affordable alternative to human, hardware and software assets that are traditionally required to service a business intelligence solution. Director of IT for JetSuite, Steven Roy explained that starting with the conceptualization to deployment of dashboards, this cloud based analytics tool allowed the company to complete a solution deployment process within one week. Thus for Jet Suite employees, Tableau Online is a productivity enhancement tool that allows better decisions based on data.
The representatives at ACT reiterated the same point. Tableau Online enabled its employees to stay productive without much interference from the administration
