Tableau Software has just introduced a new version of their market leading data discovery product – Tableau 8.2 – an update that brings Tableau to Mac users all over the world and provides the ability of easy data storytelling.
Mac users can now enjoy the significant capabilities of Tableau Desktop with the new Mac OS version, allowing decision makers to discover and act on new insights quickly without the help of their IT department. The most popular data sources will be available for the Mac version including Excel, text files, Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, Teradata, Vertica, Hadoop and Tableau Server data.
Another key feature of this release is Story Points, which will help people add extra context, flow and guidance to tell a more structured story with their data. Story Points will allow everyone to create interactive, data-driven stories that they can share with their organisations, networks and the world.
Tableau is represented in Malta by their partners iMovo. Commenting on the launch of Tableau 8.2, Pierre Mallia, iMovo Managing Director, said “People nowadays are drowning in data. Tableau simplifies the task of turning your data into visuals which immediately show you what’s going on in your business. We were impressed with Tableau’s new capabilities that will allow our clients to take advantage of all the diverse sources of data they have within their organisation by finding new ways to harness it and unearth insights that inform decisions. Tableau 8.2 provides a vehicle to tell visually compelling, interactive narratives that bring insights and actions to life.”
