In 2018, Tableau introduced a game-changing feature: the ability to develop dashboard Extensions. One individual who recognized the potential of this innovation was Tableau Visionary Merlijn Buit. He built a fully functional Super Mario Bros game only using Tableau and quickly realized that building more Extensions gives businesses the ability to go from good to great.
In collaboration with Richard van Wijk, they decided to dedicate a full-time team to the creation of top-tier Tableau Extensions. The first Extension, ShowMeMore, was presented as a keynote by Keshia Rose at the Tableau Conference New Orleans 2018 and won the Innovative Solution Award.
Apps for Tableau is market leader in Tableau Extensions with over 600 organizations and partners worldwide.
