Stocks in this article: DATA

SEATTLE, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Slalom Consulting, a business and consulting firm offering technology expertise through a national network of local offices, has been selected as a winner in the Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) Partner Challenge by building a fully featured CFO profitability analysis solution in Tableau. Additionally, the two companies recently renewed their strategic partnership enabling continued collaboration to help current and potential Tableau customers to maximize business value from the platform.

Tableau, a leader in rapid-fire business intelligence, judged each partner's solution on its creative incorporation of Tableau content, customer success stories, business impact, market opportunity, technical depth and the partner relationship with Tableau.

"We are pleased to name Slalom Consulting as the winner of the Tableau Software Partner Challenge for their impressive and creative work with the CFO profitability and analysis solution," said Mark Schwendener, Vice President of Global Channels at Tableau Software. "Slalom has been an important Alliance Partner for Tableau, as they help companies from the Fortune 500 to emerging businesses gain exposure to and benefit from our products."

The CFO profitability analysis solution provides chief financial officers with a one-stop portal to rapidly evaluate the health of their business and can be deployed at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. It combines leading-edge technology, proprietary methods, and a lean, collaborative approach that enables companies to access and analyze data quickly and cost-effectively. The solution features a profitability summary, customer/product analysis, drill-down capability on product details and the ability to forecast product profitability based upon historical trends.

"We are thrilled with the honor of being named a Tableau Partner Challenge winner and the opportunity to strengthen the partnership between Slalom Consulting and Tableau," said James Young, Slalom Business Analytics Practice Director. "As a Tableau partner, we will be able to offer our business and technology expertise through a wide range of business intelligence, analytics and data management solutions to Tableau customers, helping those businesses realize the true potential from their data, while maximizing the benefits from their Tableau investment."

The partnership between Slalom Consulting and Tableau fosters strong ties across the sales, product and channel endeavors of both companies and is further facilitated by the close geographic alignment of company offices.  Slalom Consulting offers a wide array of consulting services focused on the Tableau platform, ranging from enterprise strategy, architecture, and development to governance, change management, training and adoption.
