Leading RPA software company, UiPath, today announced new integrations with Tableau, a powerful and fastest-growing data visualization tool, to enable Tableau users to deploy UiPath robots to automatically perform actions and trigger downstream business processes.
The new connection between the firms helps users make data and insights immediately actionable, turning Tableau reports and dashboards into dynamic action centers making automation easy for any business function in an organization. The UiPath Activity for Tableau uses Tableau APIs, so UiPath robots can extract relevant data from Tableau for use in UiPath automations.
In addition, UiPath created the UiPath Connector for Tableau to allow a person to kick off automation from directly within Tableau reports or dashboards. The UiPath Connector for Tableau is available on the Tableau Extension Gallery.
There is a bunch of use cases. For example, a supply chain analyst reviewing inventory data in Tableau can automate a purchase request for stock items that need replenishing from directly within that dashboard. Similarly, an IT system administrator can launch a robot to investigate an incident without leaving the IT service management dashboard.
“Incorporating enterprise data into an automated workflow can truly transform the way people work with data. The new integrations with UiPath unlock the power of data by automating and simplifying repetitive tasks, enabling organizations to make faster data-driven decisions.”
Francois Ajenstat, Chief Product Officer, Tableau
“Automation from within leading enterprise offerings and tools, such as Tableau, is core to our vision of helping companies on their journey to the fully automated enterprise. UiPath & Tableau integration empowers companies to extend the scale and efficiency of automation across their business by combining the power of data and insights with UiPath robots.”
Ted Kummert, Executive Vice President of Product and Engineering, UiPath
