World-class Business Intelligence-Without a Data Warehouse

Source: Vanguard Business Analytics
There is a presumption that enterprise performance management and business intelligence initiatives must be supported by data warehouses. Conceptually, the data warehouse provides a central point where a copy of data from multiple locations is stored and optimized for reporting. In practice, however, it is possible to access powerful business intelligence, analytics, and reporting, without relying on a data warehouse.

Tableau Software, a privately held company in Seattle, Washington (US), builds software that delivers fast analytics and rapid-fire business intelligence to everyday business people. Tableau's products include Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server, Tableau Digital, and the free Tableau Public.

Once connected, they can analyze data through an easy drag-and-drop interface. Tableau has already attracted over 65,000 licensed users, from one-person businesses to the world’s largest organizations. Tableau began as an extensive R&D project inside Stanford University’s prestigious Department of Computer Science. Professor Pat Hanrahan and Chris Stolte, a Ph.D. student at the time, together combined a structured query language for databases with the communication power of visual graphics, inventing a new database visualization language called VizQL™ (Visual Query Language). Under the technical leadership of Hanrahan and Stolte and the business acumen of CEO Christian Chabot, the VizQL foundation produces a fundamentally new way of interacting with the same relational databases that are the backbone of the global database and business intelligence markets.
