Tableau Software has opened an office in Singapore with plans to expand throughout the Asia Pacific region in response to market demands for its award-winning software.

Technology industry veteran and Tableau’s new Asia Pacific leader JY Pook has joined industry pioneers, including a founding father of Pixar animation studios, on a mission to revolutionize visual analytics in the Asia Pacific region.

Tableau, another in the prestigious line-up of Stanford spin-offs, including Google, Yahoo and VMWare, is rebooting the business intelligence sector. It has already helped more than 7,000 organizations, such as Barclays, Citigroup, CommonwealthBank, China Eastern Airlines, eBay, Ray White Group, Time Warner and Walt Disney Company transform the way they see, use and interact with the data that defines their business. Tableau Asia Pacific, which includes South East Asia, India, China, Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, forms a key part of their strategy to expanding the global customer base.

Pook, who has extensive experience in decision management and predictive analysis in Asia Pacific, will oversee the expansion. He had successfully and consistently built businesses in these solution areas into strong market-leading positions regionally. His plan for Tableau includes building a team, increasing education and passion for the software, accelerating revenue in the region and opening new high-growth markets with local language versions of Tableau products.

“Tableau’s expansion into Asia Pacific is about ushering business analytics into a golden era of fast, easy self-service analytics for everyone,” said Christian Chabot, CEO and co-founder of Tableau Software. “Asthe regional hub, Singapore offers great talent, a fantastic business infrastructure and is ideally located as we bring localised products to market.”
