Tableau 9.1 arrives early


A new release of Tableau's analytics software includes improved connectivity, a new mobile app, and more ways to answer questions with data.

Tableau 9.1 has arrived well before the end of October target mentioned by the company's ANZ country manager Nigel Mendonca.

The new release provides more ways to answer questions with data, an entirely new mobile experience, new options for connecting to data and easier security and authentication for the enterprise, according to Tableau.

"Tableau 9.1 builds on our mission to help people see and understand data, no matter where the data resides and what device they're using," said Chris Stolte, chief development officer and co-founder of Tableau Software.

"We've made significant investments in enterprise features and an entirely new mobile app.

"We also created a web data connector that helps developers extend Tableau to connect to a limitless number of sources from Facebook to Twitter and Google Sheets.

"New native connectors to critical data sources such as SAP and Google Cloud SQL are also included."

The Tableau Mobile App (pictured below) has been redesigned to make it easier for people to find, interact with and manage content on the go, and includes the ability to save favourite views for offline use.
