"Tableau's OEM program provides a flexible and cost-effective visual analytics platform for ISVs and SaaS companies that are looking to quickly add analytical and data visualization functionality to their products," Paul Greenspan, director of OEM sales at Tableau, said in a statement. "This program was originally created in response to strong demand from the ISV community, and the continued growth we are seeing is strong validation that our OEM partners are achieving continued success from the program." By becoming a Tableau OEM partner, ISVs can quickly embed Tableau's visual data analysis tools into their application suites, achieving rapid time-to-market with a solution that lets users create rich analyses and share their insights with colleagues in seconds.
