Tableau’s intuitive, visual-based data discovery capabilities have transformed business users’ expectations about what they can discover in data and share without extensive skills or training with a BI platform. Tableau’s revenue growth during the past few years has very rapidly passed through the $100 million, $200 million and $300 million revenue thresholds at an extraordinary rate compared with other software and technology companies.
Tableau has a strong position on the Ability to Execute axis of the Leaders quadrant, because of the company’s successful “land and expand” strategy that has driven much of its growth momentum. Many of Gartner’s BI and analytics clients are seeing Tableau usage expand in their organizations and have had to adapt their strategy. They have had to adjust to incorporate the requirements that new users/usage of Tableau bring into the existing deployment and information governance models and information infrastructures. Despite its exceptional growth, which can cause growing pains, Tableau has continued to deliver stellar customer experience and business value. We expect that Tableau will continue to rapidly expand its partner network and to improve international presence during the coming years.
One thought on “2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms – Tableau Wins Again”
Thanks for posting, Michael. Tableau is certainly showing itself to be the new breed of BI leader. But in reading the description around MicroStrategy, it is amazing that the problems Gartner calls out – ability to execute, product quality, poor customer experience – are so astonishingly self-induced over the past year. And, frankly, they are being kind given the mass exodus of people and raging disfunction going on within the company walls.
