Narrative Science announced a solution for Tableau that will bring natural language summaries (which explain the insights within their data visualizations) to the popular business intelligence and analytics solution.
What the addition of NLG (natural language generation) to a smart data discovery platform like Tableau provides is an opportunity to automatically generate a written or spoken context-based narrative of findings in the data that can accompany visualization, storyboard and batch reports, to fully inform the user about what is most important and actionable.
Users of Tableau Server and Tableau Public will be able to download a free Google Chrome extension to leverage the solution.
"We're dedicated to making our customers successful and ensuring our technology is easy to use," said Francois Ajenstat, Chief Product Officer at Tableau. "Narratives for Tableau aligns with both of these objectives and we are excited about the partnership with Narrative Science to embed Advanced NLG into our platform, further enabling Tableau users to quickly understand what is most interesting and important in their data."
