Tableau Software.

Tableau Software, a provider of visual analysis software, has brought out Tableau v3.0, designed for information workers in all job functions and industries. Tableau v3.0 enables people to summarize and explore their everyday data with an intuitive interface that generates crisp visual displays.

Tableau v3.0 enables users to create fully interactive dashboards in an "effortless drag-and-drop workflow," the Seattle company said in an announcement. "Without any IT support or programming, you can monitor and compare information, including data from multiple sources. For example, you can monitor business performance in a dynamic dashboard using data from Excel, Oracle and SQL Server simultaneously."

Tableau v3.0 delivers a new class of filters that dynamically update all displays in worksheets and dashboards. Now, users can create and adjust a filter and watch an array of visual displays update simultaneously. The product also lets users add free-form comments and dynamic data labels to any visual display. All annotations are dynamic and automatically reposition themselves as users explore and analyze.

The new release enables users to build presentation-ready tables that maintain their live connection to underlying data sources. The new formatting includes control of fonts, colors and shading on all axes, rows and columns. Also, with just one click, users can add dynamic reference lines to any analysis. Reference line calculations now include medians, statistical distributions and confidence levels.

Moreover, the company says, Tableau v3.0 enables users to define "on the fly" groups within a visual display. By using the new "paper clip" icon, people can combine and re-categorize multiple data fields with one click. All groups are saved with the workbook and dynamically update as the data changes.

In addition its support for Excel, Access, SQL Server, SQL Server Analysis Services, MySQL, Oracle and Hyperion Essbase, Tableau has added connections to IBM DB2, PostgreSQL, Firebird and tab-delimited text files.
