BOSTON -- August 21, 2013

Lavastorm Analytics, a leading global analytics software company, today
announced that it has partnered with Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA), to empower
knowledge workers to unlock high-impact business insights hidden in their
data. As part of the Technology Partnership, Lavastorm will work with Tableau
and their customers, prospects, and channel partners to extend the benefits of
using both companies’ products in conjunction.

“Tableau and Lavastorm share a common goal of making it easy to extract
meaning from an ever-growing volume and variety of data,” said Dan Jewett,
vice president, Product Management at Tableau Software. “By joining Tableau’s
partner program and bringing deeper levels of integration between our
respective products to the market, Lavastorm will be able to help
organizations using Tableau Software to break down their data silos and
unleash the potential of their data to analyze, optimize, and control their
business processes.”

The Lavastorm Analytics Engine is used by business analysts to create a
virtual data mart on the fly by rapidly combining and transforming data from
multiple sources without having to resort to lengthy, expensive, and
error-prone custom development projects. By creating flexible, reusable ETL
and core analytic processes with Lavastorm’s easy-to-use visual configuration
environment, customers can break through data availability and quality
bottlenecks to dramatically reduce the time it takes to discover important
business insights in Tableau.

“Our customers have been using Lavastorm software in conjunction with Tableau
to accelerate time-to-value for quite a while now,” said Toffer Winslow,
general manager, analytics business for Lavastorm Analytics. “Our field-proven
agile, data management software, go-to-market strategy, and price points all
align very well with what Tableau customers are seeking. We’re very pleased to
have formalized our partnership with Tableau, and we look forward to deepening
our collaboration for the benefit of knowledge workers around the world
seeking actionable insights to continuously improve business performance.”

In support of Lavastorm’s partnership with Tableau, the company announced
today that it has released a new set of capabilities that deliver tighter
integration between the Lavastorm Analytics Engine and Tableau. After using
the Lavastorm Analytics Engine to acquire, prepare, and federate data from
many sources, business analysts can publish their results to the Tableau Data
Extract format thereby accelerating the pace and reducing the cost of business
discovery. A fully functional, free trial of the Lavastorm Analytics Engine,
including the Tableau integration features, is available for download on the
company’s website.

In addition, Lavastorm will attend the Tableau Customer Conference, in
Washington, DC from September 8 – 12, 2013, where the business benefits of the
integration between the companies’ respective products will be showcased.
Tableau customers can request a private meeting with Lavastorm by emailing
