New From Tableau: Improved Slack Integration and AI Features

By Lucy Mazalon

When it comes to analytics, visualizations allow individuals to explore and interpret data – data that tells a compelling story. 

However, getting these insights into the hands of users, while not disrupting the flow of work, is a challenge to overcome. As a result, Tableau is on a mission to make analytics more accessible and collaborative. 

New AI-powered capabilities, announced today, will combine personalization and automation. Highlights include:

  • Tableau Slack Integration: Share Tableau content in Slack – more than has been possible until now. 
  • Data Stories (for Tableau Server): Use natural language, powered by AI, to translate graphs, charts, and spreadsheets into insights that anyone can understand. 
  • User Attribute Functions: Personalizes analytics experiences for each user by displaying only the most relevant insights. 
  • Data Mapping: Take Accelerators/ready-to-use dashboards and reconfigure them to match any data source.

Tableau Slack Integration 

“Put data at the center of every conversation” by sharing Tableau content in Slack, including visualization previews and search/share functionality in direct messages and channels with team members or external stakeholders.

Data Stories (for Tableau Server)

Use natural language (powered by AI) to translate graphs, charts, and spreadsheets into insights that anyone – not just data analysts – can understand and share.

Anyone following the news will know that Salesforce recently announced Einstein GPT. These powered-up Data Stories follow the trend to allow users across the organization to ‘have a conversation’ with the tools and technologies they use in their day-to-day roles. 

User Attribute Functions

This personalizes analytics experiences for each user by displaying only the most relevant insights. 

Streamline user experiences by managing data access and enforcing security policies based on attributes like role, department, and location.

Data Mapping

Data mapping allows users to take an Accelerator (or ready-to-use dashboards available for many use cases across industries in Tableau Exchange) and reconfigure it to match any data source without the use of third-party applications.

See It in Action

These Tableau announcements are sure to be a win for organizations looking to maximize their analytics, while democratizing access for anyone. The reality is that many organizations still struggle with how to use their data – in fact, 41% of business leaders report not understanding their data because it is too complex or not accessible enough.
