Author dashboards in Tableau Desktop, then share them securely with Tableau Server. Let people communicate with data in a whole new way. Enable your business to find answers in minutes, not months.
Empower everyone to use data
With Tableau Server, your whole team can securely use interactive data dashboards. When people across the organization can see and understand their own data, they solve problems and discover opportunities.
Ask new questions from anywhere
When you publish a dashboard to Tableau Server, your team can access it securely from any browser or mobile device. They can drill down and ask new questions by editing a view on the Web or on a tablet. Get answers fast in meetings, in the field and on the go.
Enable strong governance
Publish shared data models to the Data Server so your whole team can use them. Define data sources, add metadata, and author new calculations and data fields for everyone to use. Give the business a single source of truth—securely.
