How Tableau Became the Leader in Analytics Platform Using Qt

You guessed it – their responsive and stunning user interfaces are “Built with Qt”.  The $3.5 Billion data empire quickly became and has stayed a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for BI & Analytics platforms where they knocked the socks off giants such as SAP, IBM, and Oracle. Just like Qt, Tableau serves customers across all industries you can imagine and serves companies such as Wells Fargo, Dow Chemical, SpaceX and the Texas Rangers just to name a few.

Designed for the Individual, Scaled for the Enterprise

Tableau makes analyzing data fast, easy, beautiful and useful. No wonder it has gained a growing interest among the business users, but also groups traditionally not using Business Intelligence (BI) tools are taking it into use. 

Tableau is revolutionizing the way data is being used. To access and further analyze the data doesn’t anymore require IT department participating. The data is accessible to all levels of organizations and individuals. Democratizing data allows people to think and act quickly, bringing transparency and agility to fact-based decision making.

We purchased an enterprise contract with The Qt Company because Qt gives us the expressiveness and the speed of a native UI framework with a very low maintenance cost and a nice support network behind us...We believe Qt will further our mission of providing the best user experience.
