SEATTLE, WA and SANTIAGO, CHILE--(Marketwire - Oct 22, 2012) - Tableau Software, the global leader in rapid-fire business intelligence software, today announced strategic partnerships with some of the leading IT companies in Latin America to offer Big Data analytics across all industries. Whether an e-commerce site, financial institution, hospital or university, Tableau is developing new ways to unleash the power of Big Data, regardless of the database and data management systems in use.
In line with its global expansion strategy, Tableau has partnered with industry-leading IT consulting firms in the region that have countless years of experience offering business intelligence software, solutions and services, including:
"All of our strategic partners have shown great foresight and unwavering commitment by investing in the business relationship and helping people see and understand their data," said Miguel Nhuch, Vice President for Latin America at Tableau Software.
The exponential growth of data locked in spreadsheets and traditional databases has made analyzing and visualizing that data more complex. Tableau helps people to easily access that data, whether in a relational database, in the Cloud or Hadoop, and deliver quick and easy visual analytics.
This is big news for companies across all verticals in the region that have long struggled with disparate sources of information and legacy systems. Tableau easily and seamlessly makes Big Data accessible and useful throughout the enterprise, delivered via desktop, web and mobile devices.
