Anvil and Baker Tilly unveil Anvil X, a new platform for building Tableau dashboard extensions

CAMBRIDGE, UK (March 7th, 2023) – Python-based web application builder Anvil and leading advisory CPA firm Baker Tilly US, LLP (Baker Tilly) today announce Anvil X, a platform designed to help organizations using Salesforce’s Tableau software turn their dashboards into applications.

Anvil X is a toolkit for building and deploying Tableau extensions entirely in Python. The platform is based on Anvil, a framework and integrated development environment for pure-Python full- stack web development. With Anvil X, developers can build and deploy web applications faster and more efficiently, enabling leaders and managers to make more effective, real-time decisions.

“Anvil X enables organizations to turn their read-only reports into data tools,” said Cory Wendt, a partner in Baker Tilly's manufacturing advisory practice. “Companies rely on dashboards to communicate information through data, but in many cases, users need to leave the dashboard to act. Anvil for Tableau enables developers to extend their dashboard by building what they need into their visualization.”

Anvil X leverages Python's versatility and beginner-friendliness, making it one of the most popular software languages. The Anvil Editor combines the rapid visual design and productivity of "low-code" tools with the power and flexibility of a code-first framework. With Anvil X, Tableau Developers can leverage a programming language that many already know to develop the data tools their organization needs.

“Our technology lets organizations build tools faster and more easily than anything else on the market, using just Python, and we can’t wait to see what the Tableau community does with this tool in their hands,” said Meredydd Luff, founder and CEO of Anvil. “We are thrilled to launch this product with Baker Tilly.”

Baker Tilly is the exclusive firm providing advisory services and customer success packages to clients implementing Anvil X.
