Connect to all of your data—no matter where it resides. Tableau offers native connectors built and optimized for many databases and files—from spreadsheets and PDFs to big data, cube, and relational databases on-premises or in the cloud, even application data or data on the web.

Tableau partner ecosystem

Your BI platform shouldn’t dictate your data pipeline infrastructure or strategy. Tableau helps you leverage the investments you’ve already made with integration partners that span data storage and processing, data prep and transformation, cataloging and enterprise metadata management, data science, query acceleration, and more.

Embed or extend Tableau to do more

Tableau helps you bring more powerful analysis to more people with extensibility and embedding capabilities. You can even integrate other applications into Tableau dashboards.

Data science integrations

Analytics Extensions help make your statistical and predictive models accessible to more people. Extend Tableau calculations to dynamically leverage popular data science programming languages, tools, and platforms—including R, Python, MATLAB, and more.

Dashboard application integrations

With our Extensions API, developers can create dashboard objects that enable customers to integrate and interact with data from other applications directly in Tableau. See what other developers and partners have built in the Extension Gallery.
