ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at Gartner's IT Symposium,
Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA), a global leader in rapid-fire, easy-to-use
business analytics software, partnered with Google Cloud Platform to
demonstrate how their combined technologies can help people see and understand
their data and quickly get insights from multiple data sources so they can
make data driven decisions and optimize cost management.


Tableau and Google created a series of dashboards to visualize enormous
volumes of real-time sensory data gathered at Google I/O 2013, Google's
developers' conference. Data measuring multiple environmental variables, such
as room temperature and volume, was analyzed in Tableau and presented to
attendees at the Gartner event. With Tableau's visual analytics, Gartner
attendees could see that from the data created, I/O conference managers could
adjust the experience and gain insights in real time, like re-routing
air-conditioning to optimize power and cooling when rooms got too warm.

"Google Cloud Platform combined with Tableau provides a fast, low cost model
compared to traditional BI platforms," said Lynn Smith, Vice President of
Strategic Sales at Tableau Software. "The scale, through-put, and performance
of Google Big Query combined with Tableau rapid-fire business analytics allows
dynamic visual analysis of multiple and varied data-sources with live queries,
plus the flexibility to interrogate data that businesses are seeking to give
them the competitive edge."

Earlier this year Gartner positioned Tableau as a "Leader" in its 2013 Magic
Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms* report. Google and
Tableau will demonstrate this transformative platform at the following 2013
