London, 1 April 2015. Today’s omni-channel retailers are beginning to understand the importance of data insight and how, with the help of recent advancements in data analytics technology, better data visibility can lead to more informed business decisions and more meaningful ways of communicating key insights across all levels of the enterprise.

To support retail businesses with this transformation, Javelin Group, Europe’s leading retail and omni-channel consultancy, is delighted to announce its partnership with Tableau Software, a global leader in rapid-fire, easy-to-use business analytics software.

Used by more than 15,000 customer accounts worldwide, Tableau helps businesses to quickly analyse, visualise and share key information.

As a result of this innovation, Tableau has been positioned as a ‘Leader’ in the 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platform report for the second year in a row, proving its unique value as a BI tool.
