Tableau Software Teams with Attivio to Tap Unstructured Content

In a partnership announced today, Tableau Software and Attivio will combine Attivio's Active Intelligence Engine (AIE) with Tableau's visualization and rapid-fire BI solutions to enable unified information access for customers.  Attivio and Tableau have completed joint product testing and certification enabling their mutual customers to build new Tableau analytic dashboards based on the AIE platform.

Tableau allows customers to gain insight into data from flat files, databases, warehouses, and cubes. By integrating Attivio AIE, Tableau users can now analyze and visualize the complete information landscape across structured and unstructured sources, including web content, news, social media, and information in content management systems. For Attivio customers, Tableau's visualizations will enable information to be customized for different business decision makers and scenarios.

 "Tableau is one of the most talked about and utilized business intelligence solutions by our customers, mainly because it is so intuitive, dynamic and visually stimulating," says Attivio CTO Sid Probstein. "The addition of unstructured content to Tableau will create many ‘aha' moments for users as they realize the power of unified information access and the business decisions it can help drive." 

"As we set our sights on huge growth in 2012, the insight Attivio delivers will help bring our solutions to more users across the enterprise - especially business units looking for ways to harness and understand unstructured content," adds Suzanne Hoffman, director of Channel at Tableau Software. "In turn, we think Tableau will help the traditional business intelligence community literally visualize the power of unified information access in ways never before possible."
