Tableau Desktop and Tableau Public now run natively on the Mac; new Story Points feature helps people create interactive, data-driven stories
SEATTLE, June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA) today announced the general availability of Tableau 8.2, an update that brings Tableau to Mac users around the world and adds a feature to help people tell stories with their data. With Tableau 8.2, Mac users will have a fully-featured analytics application that lets them ask questions of their data. Story Points will allow everyone to create interactive, data-driven stories that they can share with their organizations, networks and the world.
"Mac users now have simpler and more seamless access to their data using this new version of Tableau Desktop. It's specifically designed from the ground up to take advantage of the user interface and rich Retina displays that the Mac OS offers," said Chris Stolte, Chief Development Officer and co-founder of Tableau Software. "Another key feature of this release is Story Points, which will help people add extra context, flow and guidance to tell a more structured story with their data."

In order to take advantage of all of that data, people need to find new ways to harness it and unearth the insights that inform decisions. Tableau Story Points provides a vehicle to tell visually compelling, interactive narratives that bring insights and actions to life.
