Narrative Science Instantly Explains Tableau Dashboards as Written Stories to Enhance Analysis and Communication
Clients Can Now Leverage the Integration of Narrative Science and Tableau to Translate Enterprise Data into Plain English, Statistics into Stories and Numbers into Knowledge
Narrative Science, the leader in natural language generation (NLG) for the enterprise, announces Narratives for Tableau, a new extension built with the recently released Tableau Extension API and powered by Narrative Science.
Narratives for Tableau instantly provides plain-English explanations of charts and graphs, giving analysts a quick and easy way to communicate to dashboard readers. This functionality allows users to generate interactive natural language stories that explain the insights within their data visualizations.
Francois Ajenstat, Tableau’s Chief Product Officer, said, “This is the next logical milestone for our relationship with Narrative Science and ultimately, bringing value to our customers. In simplifying the ability for Tableau users to glean insights from their data, they are freed up to spend more time on analysis and less on administrative tasks.”
Narrative Science has also been collaborating with Deloitte through Deloitte Catalyst, an ecosystem network of leading startups working to translate the potential of disruptive technologies into practical business solutions for the firm and its clients.
“We are thrilled to continue innovating with Deloitte,” said Nick Beil, COO of Narrative Science. “The use of groundbreaking technologies such as Narratives for Tableau reflects Deloitte’s focus on digital transformation and human augmentation technologies.”
“Deloitte Catalyst has been working with startups since 2014 to translate the potential of disruptive technologies, such as NLG,” says Craig Muraskin, Managing Director of US Innovation at Deloitte. “We are pleased to be able to collaborate with startups to develop technologies and tools, such as Narratives for Tableau, that allow our professionals to focus their talents on higher-level, critical work.”
