Data Visualization For Non Data Nerds

Feb 18, 2015

Ross Reynolds speaks with Chris Stolte, chief development officer and co-founder of Tableau Software, a Seattle data visualization company whose goal is to make tools accessible to people who are not data nerds.

Tableau, founded in 2003, has grown to 1,900 employees around the world with headquarters in Fremont. Stolte explains how the ability to visualize information supercharges employees. He also talks about one of the myths of big data -- it doesn’t have to be that big to be useful.

Correction 2/19/15: An earlier version of the audio for this segment incorrectly stated the number of employees at Tableau. Most current estimates are around 1,900 employees.
