Tableau’s first quarter: 86 percent annual growth

Data analytics and visualization specialist Tableau Software announced its first-quarter financial results on Monday, touting $74.6 million in revenue and an 86 percent increase over the same period a year earlier. Tableau isn’t the biggest player in the business intelligence and data analysis world, but it’s probably the fastest growing one — especially¬†among public companies. In 2013, Tableau’s revenues grew 82 percent to $232 million;¬†an 82 percent increase for 2014 would put Tableau’s annual revenue at more than $422 million.
