Tableau Software, purveyor of data visualization and business intelligence software, and Teradata Corp., provider of data warehousing and enterprise analytics, announced that Tableau’s visual analytics applications are now available through Teradata. Working in partnership, Teradata will be able to distribute Tableau’s data visualization suite with the Teradata Purpose-Built Platform Family to customers.

            The joint offering is already used by several customers in the US and Europe, such as Norfolk Southern. Tableau’s applications are Teradata-certified for TD13, TD12, TDv6.2 and TDv6.1.

            “Companies need solutions that enable business end-users to analyze data directly and easily from their companies’ data warehouses,” said Miles Stephenson, VP solutions and alliances marketing, Teradata. “By using Tableau with Teradata, we create a whole new meaning to enterprise ‘visibility.’ Organizations can literally see for themselves the benefits of their enterprise data warehouse – quickly and easily.”

            The Tableau solution leverages the power of Teradata to scale seamlessly from local or regional operations to national and multi-national levels. Together, the products provide near real-time, enterprise-wide visualizations, dashboards and reports that anyone can create and that can then be shared via a Web browser, embedded into Web pages, presentations, wikis or corporate portals with Tableau Server. By integrating Tableau and Teradata, the joint analytic solution enables more people to access useful information, rapidly accelerates the pace of analysis, and helps people deliver more meaningful, visually appealing analytics for better decision-making.

            Tableau connects directly to Teradata. Unlike other business intelligence solutions, Tableau does not require ETL processes and does not require an intermediate data silo to be created. Leveraging an optimized connector, Tableau relies on Teradata’s superior performance to complete all query processing and analytical processes. The results are Tableau visualizations that are fast, live and always current. Anyone across the organization can visually analyze their data easily, eliminating the need for tedious spreadsheet analysis.

            Teradata customers can rapidly deploy Tableau’s BI suite, Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server to help people build and deliver data visualizations, reports and ad hoc analytics. Tableau Desktop lets people create powerful data visualizations easily. Tableau Server enables entire organizations to share, discover and interact with their data, business dashboards and reports via a Web browser.
