ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at Gartner's IT Symposium, Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA), a global leader in rapid-fire, easy-to-use business analytics software, partnered with Google Cloud Platform to demonstrate how their combined technologies can help people see and understand their data and quickly get insights from multiple data sources so they can make data driven decisions and optimize cost management.
Tableau and Google created a series of dashboards to visualize enormous volumes of real-time sensory data gathered at Google I/O 2013, Google's developers' conference. Data measuring multiple environmental variables, such as room temperature and volume, was analyzed in Tableau and presented to attendees at the Gartner event. With Tableau's visual analytics, Gartner attendees could see that from the data created, I/O conference managers could adjust the experience and gain insights in real time, like re-routing air-conditioning to optimize power and cooling when rooms got too warm.
"Google Cloud Platform combined with Tableau provides a fast, low cost model compared to traditional BI platforms," said Lynn Smith, Vice President of Strategic Sales at Tableau Software. "The scale, through-put, and performance of Google Big Query combined with Tableau rapid-fire business analytics allows dynamic visual analysis of multiple and varied data-sources with live queries, plus the flexibility to interrogate data that businesses are seeking to give them the competitive edge."Earlier this year Gartner positioned Tableau as a "Leader" in its 2013 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms* report. Google and Tableau will demonstrate this transformative platform at the following 2013 worldwide Gartner Symposium events:
