We help people see and understand data. Seven words that drive everything we do. And they’ve never been more important.
In 2020 the world will generate 50 times the amount of data as in 2011 and 75 times the number of information sources (IDC, 2011). Within these data are huge opportunities for human advancement. But to turn opportunities into reality, people need the power of data at their fingertips. Tableau is building software to deliver exactly that.

Our products are transforming the way people use data to solve problems. We make analyzing data fast and easy, beautiful and useful. It’s software for anyone and everyone.

We are Tableau Software.

In 1967, Dr. Dian Fossey founded the Karisoke™ Research Center in Rwanda’s Virunga mountains to protect and study the endangered mountain gorillas. Although Fossey’s life was cut short, her work has continued through the Karisoke Research Center and grown into conservation efforts for other wildlife and programs for people who live near the gorillas.

Our 50 years of successful conservation work in saving gorillas is based on a holistic model with four key parts: direct, daily protection of gorillas; scientific research on gorillas and their ecosystems; educating the next generation of scientists and conservationists in Africa; and helping local people with basic needs, so that communities can thrive and work together with us.

The Fossey Fund protects two endangered gorilla species in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and in the Virunga Mountains of Rwanda and Congo. Saving gorillas is an important mission, but the value of this work is even more far reaching. When gorillas are protected, so are their  forest habitats, which are critical ecosystems that support our planet and all life on earth. Our holistic conservation efforts also directly help people and communities, improving the health and livelihoods of people who live near the gorillas and helping to build the next generation of conservationists in Africa.
