Top Executive: Tableau 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, but the company has continued to operate as an independent subsidiary.
In March Tableau debuted the 2021.1 release of its platform that incorporated Salesforce’s Einstein Discovery predictive modeling and machine learning technology, boosting Tableau’s predictive analysis capabilities.
CEO Adam Selipsky remained Tableau’s top executive following the acquisition by Salesforce. But in March Selipsky left to become the new CEO of Amazon Web Services. Mark Nelson, previously executive vice president of product development at Tableau, was named Selipsky’s replacement.
