Thank You, FlowingData Sponsors

Posted to Sponsors  |  Nathan Yau

FlowingData has hit a critical point in its life where regular hosting isn’t enough, and the next step up is a big one — especially with what I have planned in a couple of weeks. FlowingData sponsors help me take this step and make sure everything keeps going smoothly. Thank you, FlowingData sponsors.

I hope you’ll join me in thanking them by checking them out. They all have something worthwhile to offer:

Tableau Software — Data exploration and visual analytics in an easy-to-use analysis tool.

Eye-Sys — Comprehensive real-time 3D visualization.

SiSense — Easy-to-use reporting and analysis. No code required.

If you’d like to sponsor FlowingData, please feel free to email me, and I’ll get back to you with the details.
