Tableau Selects CData to Extend Real-Time Data Connectivity

We're proud to announce that Tableau, a leading analytics platform and a Salesforce company, has selected CData to expand their data connectivity offerings. CData's broad portfolio of data connectivity solutions will enable Tableau customers to connect to the critical cloud applications and data sources that power their businesses.

Customers depend on real-time access to data across enterprise systems and applications to deliver actionable insights. But as organizations shift their infrastructure to the cloud, data is becoming increasingly fragmented and decentralized.

CData offers an extensive array of data connectivity solutions to simplify the way applications work with disparate data. Our standards-based solutions streamline data access and insulate applications from the complexities of data integration. Combining best-in-class data connectivity from CData with Tableau's leading analytics and data management solutions will enable customers to make data-driven decisions based on real-time data from more than 250 popular enterprise data sources – including on-premise and cloud applications, relational & NoSQL databases and data warehouses, APIs, flat files, and more.

"CData has been a data connectivity partner for Tableau for several years – they simplify our ability to support integration with the data sources our customers care about."

-- Kirk Law, SVP of Product Development, Tableau

"We love innovating with companies like CData to help extend our data connectivity options," said Kirk Law, SVP of Product Development, Tableau.

From the Fortune 500 and the Global 2000 to SMEs worldwide, thousands of organizations rely on CData connectivity to overcome data fragmentation and unlock value from diverse, dispersed data assets. Leading vendors across SaaS, data management, integration, analytics & BI, data science, data testing, AI & machine learning, and data governance embed CData software to solve data access, management, and integration challenges.

Breadth of data connectivity, security and performance were critical factors to Tableau's selection of CData. Future CData connectors will further extend Tableau's capabilities by providing fast, secure access to enterprise SaaS, relational and NoSQL data for analysis.

"Leading vendors across almost every facet of data management embed our high-performance connectivity to solve their data access and integration challenges," said Amit Sharma, CEO, CData. "Through this partnership, we are excited to bring that same CData connectivity to one of the most popular platforms for business, providing customers with fully-integrated live data access directly from Tableau."
