Gartner recently released the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms. In the report, Gartner says Tableau's "intuitive, visual-based data discovery capabilities have transformed business users' expectations about what they can discover in data and share without extensive skills or training," that it "has clearly defined the market in terms of data discovery," and that "at a minimum, [rivals] want to stop the encroachment of Tableau into their customer accounts." However, Gartner also cautions Tableau "has a limited product line focused on data discovery," and that "IT-developed reports and dashboards, traditional styles of analysis, metadata management, development and integration, BI platform administration, embedded BI and collaboration are rated as weaker capabilities of the platform."
