Exploring the Software

Let’s find out about Tableau and its philosophies.

Tableau first appeared in 2003 in Mountain View, Silicon Valley. The team of founders includes Christian Chabot- a savvy business leader, Pat Hanrahan- an Academy-award winning professor, and Chris Stolte- a brilliant computer scientist. Products by Tableau can query relational databases, OLAP cubes, cloud databases, and spreadsheets. They can then render a variety of graphs and can also extract data and store and retrieve from its in-memory data engine.

The greatest dream of Tableau is to let databases and spreadsheets be understandable to ordinary people.

Core Cultural Values at Tableau

The Tableau team believes who they are is as important as what they do. Here’s eight pieces of ethics they swear by:

1. We are on a mission- to help people see and understand data.
2. We build great products.
3. We use our products.
4. We work as a team- we’re heavily invested in each other.
5. We respect each other.
6. We are honest.
7. We keep it simple.
8. We delight our customers.
