Three months ago, we've introduced Semantic Layer Sync to completely bridge the gap between the semantic layer and BI tools and enable instantaneous, zero-friction self-serve analytics. We've launched with several supported BI tools and promised to gradually expand the spectrum of BI tools that work with Semantic Layer Sync.

Today, we're delivering on that promise and introducing the Tableau support in Semantic Layer Sync. Now you can author the data model in Cube Cloud and have it seamlessly synchronized with Tableau Cloud or Tableau Desktop where you can access the data from the semantic layer to build workbooks and dashboards.

In the following demo video, you can see that it takes seconds to configure Semantic Layer Sync and surface a view from Cube's data model to a workbook both in Tableau Cloud and Tableau Desktop:

Over the last months, Semantic Layer Sync has proven itself as a feature that saves a lot of time for data engineers who define metrics in the semantic layer and enable self-serve analytics for their end users in BI tools. Now, it's time to integrate Semantic Layer Sync in your Tableau workflow.

Semantic Layer Sync with Tableau is available in Cube Cloud on Premium and above tiers, and you can try it today. Please check the documentation to learn more about accessing and configuring this feature. Join our Slack community at to share your thoughts and opinions about this update.

If you'd like to see Semantic Layer Sync in action, you can also watch the recordings of recent webinars where we demonstrated and discussed how Semantic layer Sync works with Preset and Metabase, other popular BI tools.
