I've attended a couple of sponsored Tableau events about the 9.0 release. The data preparation feature will be very helpful for importing Excel files into Tableau, good time saving feature. All the changes seem focused on speed to analysis which is always nice. I liked the more agile approach to calculated fields. The map enhancements for selection of areas is more relevant to the user. All in all, great release, and looking forward to it.
