    What do FEDEX and Tableau have in common?

    Shawn Wallwork

      It took Federal Express years to realize they should change their name to FED-EX, but finally they did it....

      It took McDonald's years to realize they should recognize that many of their customers referred to them as Mickey D's; eventually they embraced this name and "allowed" it in their advertising...

       

      So how long will it take Tableau to realize that the name "Tableau Online" isn't ever going to catch on? How long before they realize it really should be (is) Tableau Cloud? Tableau, I know you don't want to do the "in" thing for the moment, but "Tableau Cloud" is actually what you're offering; and by calling it Tableau Online you're confusing your customers.

       

      So my question is: How long will it take Tableau to realize that their new offering should be called Tableau Cloud? [I hope not years.]
