More and more organizations are drowning in data and spending too much time creating and sharing Excel spreadsheets. Is this you?


The cloud automation and data analytics experts at stackArmor have developed a powerful “Turbo-tax” like wizard to rapidly select, price and deploy data analytics and visualization software such as Tableau. Tableau is a market leading data visualization software that connects and aggregates multiple data sources to create powerful dashboards.

Tableau offers a rich set of connectors and enterprise security features such as role-based access and SAML integration for single sign on capability. The challenge however has been the cost and delay associated with acquiring licenses and hosting & installing the software in manner that it can be customized to specific needs.
