A mission that matters

We help people see and understand their data. Eight words that drive everything we do. And they’ve never been more important.

In 2020 the world will generate 50 times the amount of data as in 2011 and 75 times the number of information sources (IDC, 2011). Within these data are huge opportunities for human advancement. But to turn opportunities into reality, people need the power of data at their fingertips. Tableau is building software to deliver exactly that.

Our products are transforming the way people use data to solve problems. We make analyzing data fast and easy, beautiful and useful. It’s software for anyone and everyone.

We are Tableau Software.

It began with three guys from Stanford

It started with a brilliant computer scientist, an Academy-Award winning professor and a savvy business leader with a passion for data. They came together to solve one of the most challenging problems in software – making data understandable to ordinary people. These were the fundamental ingredients for Tableau.

We believe in power
for the people

Building a company that fundamentally changes how people see and understand data requires a different philosophy. So Tableau founders imbued their company with disruptive points of view.

Liberate data

We believe data analysis should be about asking questions, not about learning software. We make inspiring, easy-to-use products that help people achieve greatness with data. So that data can reach its full potential and positively impact the world.

Data yearns to be free, to tell its stories to all those who care about its revelations. Discovering and sharing those stories should be easy. But it’s not. Why? Most software intended to help people access and understand data is hard to use. For too long, data has been trapped behind scripts, wizards and code.

Today, all that changes. Today, people can choose another way. Join us in the cause to liberate data for everyone.

A different kind of company

We can’t change the world if we have the culture of a typical corporation. So we don’t.

We are on a mission

We believe helping people to see and understand data is one of the most important missions of the 21st century. We proudly wear the mantle of “data geek.”

We use our products

“We Use Our Products” is a core company value. We’re not just listening to our customers’ needs. We’re living them. We’ll never stop listening to customers and we’ll never stop seeing the world from their point of view.

Data informs our decisions

We put data into action. Our R&D team analyzes billions of log records from our products to improve them. Our HR team studies our hiring trends to optimize facilities for growth and employee comfort. Our support team tracks customer cases to solve emerging issues early.

Sound science

There’s a science to building great software. We live by it. Research and experimentation inform our product design choices.

Here are a few examples of areas Tableau is making big contributions:

The cycle of visual analysis

Helping people answer
their questions

We believe in the triumph of facts. A collection of data is a collection of facts, and facts are the foundation of human progress. Hear first-hand how our customers are using Tableau to harness the power of data.

Fostering collaborative colleagues and happier workers

Better workplaces mean happier employees empowered to express their fullest ingenuity and creativity.

Our goal is to liberate the natural curiosity and creative energy stored in people everywhere, energy which is too often suppressed because it hasn’t had a proper channel for activity.
