Tableau announced the general availability of Tableau 9.3, the latest edition of its popular data visualization software with an "always connected" desktop feature and a connection to the Snowflake Elastic Data warehouse.
The "always connected" feature in Tableau Desktop makes it easier to share results with others while staying within the flow of the analysis, according to the company. The software's global map coverage functionality is significantly improved and new data has been added to its Geocoding Database and Tableau Map Service.
The native connectivity to Snowflake Computing's cloud data warehouse system in the 9.3 edition makes it easy for Tableau users to perform simple and complex data exploration and analysis (see graphic). The two companies also will collaborate on ways to help customers move their business analytics processes to the cloud.
