Dear Tableau Community,


It’s a new day for data! We’re so excited to share that we are launching a new product, announcing new offerings, and releasing our latest software update today!


Three big things happening:

Tableau Prep (formerly Project Maestro) empowers more people to get to analysis faster by helping them quickly and confidently combine, shape, and clean their data. Check out the Community Forum Space: Tableau Prep and see it in action here: Tableau Prep: A new data preparation solution


Tableau’s new offerings designed to deliver the right capabilities to the right people – and at the right price, which creates more value for our customers than ever before.


And don’t forget about all the 2018.1 features. Check them out here.
