Tableau 8.1 And R Integration

R users are happy to read on the Tableau blog that the 8.1 version will integrate with R.

“Tableau is one of the new stars in the BI/Analytics world and definitely worth a look.” says an author on the R-bloggers community.

Bora Beran writes on the Tableau blog:

When we were working on building a bridge between Tableau and R, we wanted to enable three core scenarios and types of users. Specifically, we wanted to:
  • Give Tableau users access to a rich, ever-expanding collection of statistical analysis and data mining libraries to help them gain deeper insights from their data.
  • Bring Tableau’s fluid data exploration experience and broad connectivity options to R users.
  • Enable consumers of Tableau worksheets and dashboards take advantage of R, simply by interacting with the visualization or widgets without the need to have any knowledge of the language.

At the same time we have to say that IBM Cognos has already integrated SPSS. It will be funny to see the next movements in the business analytics market!
