Tableau, a Salesforce Company
Top Executive: President, CEO Mark Nelson
Tableau offers one of the most popular data analytics and interactive visualization platforms in the industry. The Tableau Platform includes Tableau Server, Tableau Desktop and Tableau Online editions, as well as the Tableau Prep data preparation tools and other products.
Tableau was acquired by Salesforce in 2019 for $15.7 billion. Tableau has since been building links between its software and other Salesforce products, but the company has continued to operate as an independent subsidiary.
A late 2021 update to Tableau’s software included new data preparation and governance capabilities, dynamic scaling, centralized row-level security and an enterprise reference architecture.
Also in 2021, Tableau completed a two-year overhaul of the company’s partner program that provided partners with more visibility and consistency in partner requirements, assessments and benefits.
