Customers get the best in predictive analytics and data visualization from new partnership

Rapid Insight Inc. and Tableau Software announce their technology partnership enabling customers a simple means of integrating predictive modeling and data visualization. Taking advantage of the Tableau Data Extract API has made it easy to incorporate Rapid Insight models into the Tableau visualization products. Both products follow a similar visual workflow metaphor making it easy for users to build powerful models, visualizations and decision support systems. Rapid Insight and Tableau are both committed to making it easy to use data to drive decisions.

“To get the maximum value from predictive modeling, end business users need to present and share results that are easily digestible and in the context of their work,” said Ric Pratte, Rapid Insight’s President and COO. “We provide a foundation where clients can quickly extract and transform data from multiple disparate sources into predictive models and then pass the results directly to Tableau for visualizations that are effective for the end users. It’s a beautiful thing.”

“We are pleased to partner with Rapid Insight to offer our customers the power to visualize and analyze not only today’s data, but their future data as well,” said Dan Jewett, Vice President of Product Management at Tableau Software. “Visualizing predictive analysis provides customers a big competitive advantage and helps them to make decisions that will have a positive effect on their business.”

You can develop an amazing model, and use it to tell a story about your data, but visualizing the impact of the analysis is what helps drive decision-making. The Rapid Insight Tableau integration makes the transition from data, to model, to visualization seamless.
