PRESS RELEASE — BERLIN, GERMANY — Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA), the leading analytics platform, kicks-off its 8th annual European customer conference in Berlin today. During the sold-out event, attendees will learn Tableau best-practices from more than 20 customer speakers representing brands like BMW, JLL, Lloyds Bank and Deloitte Germany, hear more about Tableau’s product roadmap including a first look at upcoming features like Explain Data, Project McKinley and Tableau Catalog, and access more than 140 hours of hands-on product training.

Tableau’s Chief Product Officer, Francois Ajenstat, will also give attendees a live, on-stage demo of Explain Data alongside other key features in the beta release of Tableau 2019.3. Explain Data will join Ask Data as the latest addition to a growing portfolio of ‘smart’ features within the Tableau platform. To help customers more quickly understand the “Why?” behind their data, Explain Data is a new, AI-powered capability that automatically uncovers and provides explanations for the value of a specific data point.
Francois also introduced Project McKinley, which provides enhanced security, manageability, and scalability capabilities for Tableau Server. With Project McKinley, its simpler to run large, mission-critical Tableau Server deployments, allowing customers to react to the changing needs of their business, and to save time by streamlining the management process.
And finally, Tableau announced the newest part of the Data Management Add-on, Tableau Catalog. Tableau Catalog makes it easy to get a complete view of the data being used in Tableau. Data owners can automatically track information about the data (i.e., metadata), including user permissions, usage metrics, and lineage. There’s no need to set up indexing schedules, configure connectivity or reset permissions—it’s all done automatically.
Explain Data, Project McKinley and Tableau Catalog will be available in the Tableau 2019.3 beta, coming soon! Join our beta program to try these new capabilities.
