Tableau introduced latest version 9.2 features new data preparation improvements, customization for maps, enhanced security and a new iPhone App.
People could always use their iPhones with their Tableau dashboards and visualizations, but the Tableau Mobile app now makes it easier for people to interact with and access data on the go.
“Tableau 9.2 advances our mission to help people see and understand data, making it easier to prep data, tell stories with maps and stay on top of your data, right from the iPhone,” said Chris Stolte, Chief Development Officer and co-founder of Tableau Software. “Expanding our mobile app to the iPhone was one of our most requested improvements. We’ve also made it easier and quicker to interact with data and continue to provide more ways to keep data fresh and secure.”
Tableau 9.2 introduces more options for controlling map behavior and unlimited potential for map customization. Mapbox integration in Tableau Desktop means people can easily customize, brand, enhance and add context to maps delivering an unprecedented flexibility to create beautiful and contextually rich maps. Additionally, Tableau is expanding the support for international postal codes with the addition of Japanese postal codes and other data updates such as U.S. congressional districts.
The data interpreter now not only cleans Excel spreadsheets, but automatically detects sub-tables and converts them to tables that can be analyzed in Tableau. Data grid improvements make it easier to craft the ideal data source and quickly move on to analysis and the enhancements to the Data pane help people take fewer steps to find and update metadata.
