Tableau expands cloud capability for Asia Pacific customers with new Japan, Australia regions


Analytics platform provider Tableau Software has expanded its cloud capability for Asia Pacific customers with the launch of new regions in Australia and Japan for its fully hosted SaaS offering, Tableau Online.

Tableau says the new regions will provide customers with enhanced performance and new choices in data locality, and are located in Sydney, Tokyo and Japan.

Tableau’s says the new regions are the first in APJ and fifth worldwide including the United States and Europe, serving cloud-based analytics to new and existing Tableau Online customers.

“As analytics becomes ubiquitous, customers need to access data wherever they are located and at their own moment of need. In today’s climate where the way we work and how businesses operate is dramatically changing, cloud analytics increases speed-to-value and allows resources to be redirected to focus on improving customer experience without the distraction of managing infrastructure,” said Gavin Jones Country Manager, Australia & New Zealand, Tableau Software.

“We are excited to launch our new region in Sydney and believe that this will now provide the ultimate cloud analytics experience for Australian businesses,” Jones said.

Tableau says the launch of the new regions in APJ helps reduce the distance between a customer's data and their analytics service - and the strategic placement in APJ reduces latency, with shorter load times and faster extract refreshes for customers. “In line with Tableau’s commitment to strengthen data protection for all customers, the regions make it easier for customers to comply with regional data residency regulations,” Tableau said

“Tableau Online—our analytics platform fully hosted in the cloud—is a fast-growing area of our business and we continue to expand our capabilities to meet our customers’ needs. Our investment in these two new regions in APJ will allow more and more customers to migrate their analytics to the cloud and help with their business transformations,” said Tom Walker, Executive Vice President, Cloud, Tableau.

Dan Gooden, Data Lead, Airtasker said: “Airtasker rapidly deployed Tableau Online in a cost-effective way, with little internal engineering support, highlighting the ideal pace and seamlessness our suppliers need to model to propel us forward. Tableau's flexibility and ease of data exploration have enabled Airtasker to make sense of our data in a way that was previously not possible. We make more data-informed decisions as a result.”

Tableau says the regions are now available to both new and existing Tableau Online customers, “who have the option to select their preferred location when setting up their Tableau Online site. To learn more about deploying cloud-based self-service analytics click here.
