In Robin's role as a Strategic Sales Consultant at Tableau he helps our customers see and understand how Tableau integrates into their IT architectures. He helps customers deploy Tableau Server into their IT architectures. Robin has worked with data and IT systems as a DBA, systems manager, web developer, and business intelligence (BI) architect for 30 years. Robin often says he knows more about SAML than he likes to admit! He joined Tableau Software in 2013, and before that he was using Tableau as a customer since version 6. In his spare time Robin tries to get away from data and systems, but he usually fails. For example: he once built a brick oven in his back yard to bake bread and pizza, but the first thing he did was embed sensors so he could visualize the temperature over time as the oven warmed and cooled.
