Tableau Software

A data visualization software company based in seattle, washington, united states

Tableau was founded in 2003 as a result of a computer science project at Stanford that aimed to improve the flow of analysis and make data more accessible to people through visualization. Co-founders Chris Stolte, Pat Hanrahan, and Christian Chabot developed and patented Tableau's foundational technology, VizQL—which visually expresses data by translating drag-and-drop actions into data queries through an intuitive interface. Tableau enables users to customize dashboards that visualize data effectively, turning it into actionable insights. Like Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheet software, the platform generates worksheets featuring customizable graphs and charts, providing a clear visual picture of a company’s complex, yet covetous data.

Tableau was acquired by Salesforce in 2019. Today, organizations everywhere—from non-profits to global enterprises, and across all industries and departments—are empowering their people with Tableau to drive change with data.

Before the acquisition, Tableau was already generating over $1 billion in annual revenue.
