We are excited to announce our partnership with Tableau, the leading analytics platform that helps people see and understand their data.

The team at Tableau is focused on providing customers with the choice and flexibility they need to deliver analytics at scale, and for an increasing number of customers, that means deploying Tableau in the cloud-wherever those customers may be and wherever their data may reside.

Tableau’s partnership with us is a natural one as Alibaba Cloud has the third largest share of the global cloud computing market. Enterprises across the globe have fueled their business transformation efforts from Alibaba Cloud’s extremely scalable, secure and flexible technology infrastructure and data management services.

Connecting to More Data

Tableau on Alibaba Cloud provides customers with choice when it comes to maximizing the value of their data in the cloud, across clouds and on premises. Customers can now leverage Tableau in addition to Alibaba Cloud’s native BI product, Quick BI, to derive powerful insights from Alibaba Cloud’s data platform.

Currently, Tableau customers on Alibaba Cloud can easily connect to leading databases such as RDS for MySQL, SQL Server and Postgres via Tableau’s native connectors. In addition, Alibaba Cloud and the team at Tableau are actively working with Tableau’s Connector SDK to build out native connectors for MaxCompute, AnalyticDB, Data Lake Analytics, and more to help provide access to a variety of data sources that best fits your needs!
