GigaOm’s Derrick Harris is expressing his excitement about Tableau Software filing for IPO:
This is why I’m so excited about Tableau’s forthcoming IPO. There are few
companies that helped spur the democratization of data over the past few
years more than Tableau. It has become the face of the next-generation
business intelligence software thanks to its ease of use and focus on
appealing visualization, and its free public software has found avid users
even among relative data novices like myself. Tableau’s success and vision
no doubt inspired a number of the companies I’ve already referenced.
I’d be excited about an IPO if I’d own stock and the prospect of the IPO would make me rich(er). For all other cases I’ll continue to dream how a company will change the future.
