With Tableau 2018.2, customers can now add natural language generation (NLG) capabilities directly on their dashboards to boost data understanding

DURHAM, N.C. (PRWEB) July 31, 2018

Automated Insights, the world's leading natural language generation (NLG) company, today announced a new integration with Tableau built upon the newly released dashboard extensions feature included in Tableau 2018.2. The Wordsmith Extension enables Tableau customers to interact with their data and communicate insights by pairing data visualizations with written analytics.

"Enabling our customers to leverage the power of Wordsmith narratives directly in Tableau is exactly what we envisioned when developing dashboard extensions," said Francois Ajenstat, Chief Product Officer at Tableau. "Combined with visual analytics, Automated Insights NLG allows more people see and understand data in new ways and we look forward to continuing this great partnership for our mutual customers."

Wordsmith helps organizations empower employees by explaining exactly what's going on within their data, and most importantly, what to do about it. With the new Wordsmith extension, analysts can develop role-based written analytics that deliver the right message, to the right audience, at the right time side-by-side with Tableau visualizations. Updating in real time as users explore their dashboards, Wordsmith uses the data behind a Tableau dashboard to author personalized and prescriptive written analyses that sounds just like a human analyst wrote them.

"We debuted the first integration of NLG side-by-side with a Tableau dashboard in the keynote of Tableau Conference 2017," said Adam Smith, Chief Operating Officer at Automated Insights. "Now, we're joining visualizations with narrative, directly within Tableau, so every customer or employee can understand data, regardless of their role or their data expertise."

Also encompassed in the announcement is the release of three NLG-ready Tableau Dashboard Starters. Automated Insights teamed with Tableau to produce automated, written analytics for Tableau's Salesforce Starters Opportunity Overview dashboard, which gives a written analysis of pipeline health. With the Oracle Eloqua Campaign Overview dashboard, users can receive automated email marketing reports. Tableau customers interested in receiving automated analysis of IT request metrics can utilize the Wordsmith Extension for ServiceNow Request Report dashboard.
