Tableau Software, the easy-to-use business analytics software, announced an update on its growth in the Europe and EMEA region.
The company has reached:
- For the third quarter of 2014, 100 percent revenue growth in EMEA, year-over-year
- More than 5,000 customer accounts in over 90 countries in the EMEA region
- More than 150 employees across EMEA
Tableau opened its first EMEA office in the United Kingdom in 2010 and continues to expand in the region, most recently opening an office in Frankfurt, Germany.
“Europe presents a wonderful market opportunity for us,” said Christian Chabot, CEO and Co-founder of Tableau Software. “Tableau is positioned at the intersection of some of the biggest computing trends of our time—big data, analytics, cloud and mobile computing to name a few. We’re seeing tremendous momentum as more and more people seek to harness the power of these technologies to see and understand their data.”
Gartner estimates that spending on business intelligence and analytics in the EMEA region will exceed $1 billion by 2018, at a growth rate percentage of 11.06 percent.[i]
Tableau also announced it has reached more than 5,000 customer accounts in the EMEA region. Customer accounts include Audi AG, Switzerland Global Enterprise, St. George’s Healthcare NHS Trust, and French banking firm BNP Paribas.
Cisco, a worldwide leader in IT, is using Tableau to gain insight into business data for everyone from field representatives to sales managers, directors, and senior executives. “The volume of data that we generate and handle is huge,” said David Baudrez, Head of Business Intelligence and Insights EMEAR, at Cisco. “We knew that we needed to change the mentality that data can only be understood by highly trained analysts and technical experts – we wanted actionable data at everyone’s fingertips.”
Shopitize, a leader in the UK in mobile, interactive shopping intelligence, uses Tableau’s visual analytics to analyze data on consumer shopping behavior. With Tableau, the company is developing reports on real-time shopping behavior in minutes that used to take days. “Tableau has become an integral part of our real-time actionable insights offering, which provides brands with a direct mobile channel to consumers,” says Dr. Alexey Andriyanenko, co-founder and managing director of Shopitize.
Tableau also continues to see considerable growth in its network of partners throughout Europe. The company recently announced a new partnership with Infosys, a global leader in technology, consulting, outsourcing, and next-generation services with a significant footprint in EMEA. Tableau continues to maintain strong relationships with partners in the region such as the UK’s Information Lab.
In October, Tableau received top ratings in the 2014 BARC Business Intelligence Survey, which is based on findings from the world’s largest and most comprehensive survey of business intelligence end-users. Based in Germany, BARC is a leading enterprise software industry analyst firm.
