Tableau currently has a comfortable relationship with a number of data preparation vendors, most notably Alteryx. But that hasn’t stopped the popular data visualization vendor from developing its own self-service data preparation tool, known as Project Maestro, set to be released before the end of the year. So what does that mean for Tableau’s data prep partnerships?

We explore that question in this edition of the Talking Data podcast. We look behind the news to think about how it could ripple throughout the world of analytics software. Will customers still look for standalone data preparation software when they can access good-enough functionality in the higher level software they already own? Will the secondary features of data prep software, like reporting and predictive analytics, be enough to entice customers?

For now that all remains up in the air, but we look at the questions in this podcast to see how they may play out. There are still more questions than answers in the still-hot analytics software market, and much remains to shake out.
