IT News - BI

Tableau Conference 2023 wraps up today in Las Vegas after a three-day run, sending thousands of people back to the data sources from where they came. While data camp might be over for now, the lessons will hopefully endure. Here are nine things I learned about the company while attending the show.

Tableau has the sort of huge, engaged customer base that many brands would love to have. When Salesforce bought Tableau for almost $16 billion in 2019, the company had 86,000 customers. That number had increased to 121,000 by 2021, and by one count it now has north of 126,000 customers.

That extended 'data fam' showed up in large numbers this week for Tableau Conference 2023, which was held at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Sin City. More than 5,000 people attended the conference, which was twice the figure from last year, the company said. Next year's conference will be in San Diego in May. Can it double attendance again and bring 10,000 to America's Finest City?

'The need to deliver provable value to the organization at scale is driving these trends in D&A,' said Gareth Herschel, VP Analyst at Gartner. 'Chief data and analytics officers (CDAOs) and D&A leaders must engage with their organizations' stakeholders to understand the best approach to drive D&A adoption. This means more and better analysis and insights, taking human psychology and values into account.'
