No one makes data shine brighter than Tableau. It’s why the BI vendor stands so far above the crowd in Gartner’s BI and Analytics Platforms MQ Leaders report.
Think of Walt Disney answering some of your most pressing business questions. There’d have to be a picture, and you’d probably even be able to interact with it.
That’s what Tableau gives you: Answers in vizzes and tools that invite you to play with your data. Maybe Tableau’s magic has something to do with the fact that one of the company’s founders, Pat Hanrahan, once worked for Pixar and has won two Academy Awards for Science and Technology.
So it’s no wonder that Gartner BI Challenger Birst showed an interest in hooking up with Tableau. Today the vendors announced a “partnership” in the form of an ODBC connector that makes it easy for their mutual customers to leverage Birst’s data extraction and normalization engine with Tableau.
