Tableau Software just announced an entirely new mobile application, Vizable, designed to help people see and understand data with just an iPad. The free app was just unveiled at the 2015 Tableau Conference in Las Vegas by Tableau Vice President of Mobile and Strategic Growth, Dave Story.
The free iPad app makes it possible to explore data by using gestures such as pinching, swiping and dragging, allowing people to sculpt data into visualizations in seconds.
Tableau helps anyone quickly analyze, visualize and share information and has already put Vizable into the hands of a number of businesses and organizations. All those who previously had data and questions, but no easy tool to answer those questions, can now find insights to drive and improve their business, even while they’re on the go.
“There is no great app to see and understand a spreadsheet visually, using only a tablet,” explained Dave Story. “This is an incredibly common scenario. Whether you’re a teacher with students’ test data, a small business with the day’s sales, a cyclist with ride stats, or an executive with the past hour’s web site traffic - Vizable brings analytics to more people by engaging them with their data like never before.”
With Vizable, Tableau brings obviously fun and approachable data analysis to even more people. It is currently available worldwide in the Apple iTunes store in English, but will be translated to other languages in the future.
It supports data in many international formats today. The first version works with data in CSV files and Excel (xls or xlsx) files, making it ideal for people with personal or business data they want to analyze.
Visualizations created in Vizable can be shared with friends and colleagues through email, instant message, or social media.
