Tableau Software today introduced new subscriptions that combine new and existing analytical capabilities into packages appropriate for everyone across an organisation, regardless of skill level.

“With the unprecedented and accelerating growth of data that customers are experiencing, the need to see and understand data is more important than ever before. Professional analysts, teachers, doctors, project managers, marketers, sellers, developers, factory line workers, recruiters – everyone needs data to make better decisions,” said Adam Selipsky, CEO at Tableau.

As a new way to buy and scale Tableau’s analytics platform, Tableau Creator, Explorer, and Viewer subscriptions provide tailored combinations of sophisticated analytics and simplicity.

This allows every customer to create the appropriate mix of analytics capabilities to meet the specific needs of their entire organisation.

From consuming data and performing ad-hoc analysis from curated data sources, to preparing and developing advanced analysis, the new price offerings cover a wide breadth of capabilities.

They also include the newly released data preparation application Tableau Prep, new web authoring capabilities, and the renowned Tableau Desktop.

Customers can choose to work on-premises or in the cloud.

“Organisations are facing the urgent need to empower their entire workforce to help drive more revenue, reduce costs, provide better service, increase productivity, discover the next scientific breakthrough and even save lives. Our new offerings will help entire organisations make analytics ubiquitous, enabling them to tailor the capabilities required for every employee,” added Selipsky.

Customers can choose to migrate their existing Tableau Server and Desktop installations to the new subscription offerings, available today in the Tableau 2018.1 release.

Once migrated, administrators will be able to assign a specific option — Creator, Explorer, or Viewer — to each user in their organisation, completing the transition process.

Tableau Creator gives full analytics capabilities to analysts and power users.

For organisations looking to scale analytics, Tableau Explorer allows self-service analysis of governed data

Tableau Viewer enables casual users to consume dashboards and visualisations created by others.

Tableau’s new offerings are available on-premises, in the public cloud or via SaaS, making it easy to start and to scale.
