Tableau Software has opened an office in Singapore with plans to expand throughout the Asia Pacific region in response to market demands for software, said the rapid-fire business intelligence software provider.
Tableau has also hired a new chief to direct the expansion in JY Pook as Asia Pacific leader.
Tableau Asia Pacific, which includes Southeast Asia, India, China, South Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, forms a key part of their strategy to expanding the global customer base, said the company.
"Tableau's expansion into Asia Pacific is about ushering business analytics into a golden era of fast, easy self-service analytics for everyone," said Christian Chabot, CEO and co-founder of Tableau Software. "As the regional hub, Singapore offers great talent, a fantastic business infrastructure and is ideally located as we bring localised products to market."
Tableau is one of the Stanford spin-offs, just like Google, Yahoo and VMWare.
The company has already helped more than 7,000 organisations, such as Barclays, Citigroup, CommonwealthBank, China Eastern Airlines, eBay, Ray White Group, Time Warner and Walt Disney Company transform the way they see, use and interact with the data that defines their business.
Besides its paid enterprise solutions, Tableau Software has a free Web product called Tableau Public, commonly used by bloggers, journalists, and leading media websites to share data online as interactive visualisations.
