Tableau and AWS Expand Strategic Relationship to Bring Analytics in the Cloud Closer to Their Customers
Leading analytics player Tableau recently announced its new initiative – Modern Cloud Analytics (MCA) – which sees it partnering with Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) to make cloud-based analytics more achievable for their customers.
The MCA program combines the resources, technical expertise, and data knowledge of Tableau and AWS, and together with its validated launch partners (InterWorks, Slalom, and TEKsystems) can help customers on their end-to-end analytics journey, right from the formative stage of strategy, to migration through to operations. Customers can therefore more easily migrate data and analytics workloads to AWS and deploy and scale their cloud-based analytics capability.
This collaboration of Tableau, AWS, and their launch partners means customers can expect to see benefits such as lower operational costs, reduced time in application scaling, and validated migration processes that are backed by Tableau and AWS prescribed migration guidance, application architecture, and operating models.
