Tableau plans on adding natural language into its platform with its latest acquisition of the natural language query startup, ClearGraph.

“Natural language queries will make it easier for more people to interact with Tableau, whether you’re an executive who needs an answer quickly, or on a mobile phone and want an answer from your data on the move. We’re excited about this acquisition as the ClearGraph team shares our mission and is aligned with our innovation perspectives on conversational analytics,” said Francois Ajenstat, chief product officer at Tableau.

ClearGraph is able to analyze data using natural language, bringing in consumer-like experiences to users by connecting disparate data sources. Also, its natural language query technology stores semantic data in knowledge graphs.
