SEATTLE, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Tableau Software won a Stevie Award for its free product Tableau Public in the "Best New Product – Software as a Service" category. Tableau Public is a free tool that lets anyone who posts content to the web easily create interactive visualizations and publish them to blogs, web sites, or anywhere online. Instead of viewing static charts or tables, Tableau Public lets people answer questions and share data interactively on the web.
"Winning this award is a real honor. Tableau Public was launched less than six months ago and already we've seen thousands of bloggers and websites using Tableau Public," said Ellie Fields, Director of Product Marketing. "People use Tableau Public to tell compelling stories with data. And what they've produced is amazing – we've seen where foreclosures are heaviest, which banks are at risk of shutting down, comparisons of countries' World Cup statistics, and even how milk production by cows in Wisconsin has doubled in the last 50 years." These visualizations and dozens more are featured at http://www.tableausoftware.com/public/gallery.
The awards were presented during ceremonies at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. The ceremonies were hosted by Cheryl Casone of Fox Business Network and broadcast nationwide on radio by the Business TalkRadio Network.
