In the business of Big Data and business intelligence, the most exciting company may not be public. Tableau Software recently filed a prospectus to sell shares later this year.

There's plenty of competition -- Qlik Technologies (NASDAQ:QLIK), certainly. There are also new IPOs participating in the market, such as Splunk (NASDAQ:SPLK). And yet neither possess so powerful a profit engine as Tableau, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova in the following video.

With gross margin on new software sales ranging around 99%, Tableau may very well be the year's most exciting tech IPO, Tim says. What do you think of the business? Have you read the S-1?
