Analyze massive amount of information with the Data Visualization tool, Tableau and make excellent data driven decisions.
Advancement in bi and technology has brought data to our fingertips. Every day new inventions come into the market to make work easier for us. Business Intelligence tools convert raw data into information for analysis and help tremendously in decision making. There have been many tools that have been aiding organizations in Business Intelligence, but one particular tool rules the roost and has been influencing over 35000 companies to change the way they view and understand data. It is Tableau.
Tableau makes Data visualization very simple and scalable through dashboards, managing unlimited data and flexibly changing the data source. The tool which even the non-programmers can use, draws data from the most diverse sources, irrespective of the size and numbers and these numbers from data sources are converted into visual representations for the user to comprehend. A person without technical expertise can click on the graphics and drag them across the screen to rearrange factors to better understand sales, costs, and profits.
Below is an example of how Tableau makes Data Visualization very easy. It is a pictorial representation of global temperature across the years and months:
The Desktop (for individual use), Server (provides sharing, collaboration and security of data), Online, Mobile, Reader (a desktop version to read and interpret data. It has the workbook file to store the saved data), and Public (interactive between users). Although there are many charts that are in place to visualize data, the good news for you is that Tableau does not require you to know anything about them. Yes, the tool is intelligent enough to suggest which kind of data visualization will suit your data type and also allows you to manually change it if you want to do so.
Tableau comprises of 3 parts. The worksheets, the dashboard and the layout container. The dashboard is the core and is a coagulated display of all the worksheets and if you work with more than one worksheet, you will see how the magic happens here. Each worksheet in the dashboard has visualizations of different kinds of data, streaming in from different sources. The layout containers allow you to change the co-relation between the different data visualizations (e.g. graphs and charts)
The Tableau Prep helps combine data and to clean the data for analysis. It makes data preparation easier.

It boasts of a revolutionary data entry technology that lets you bring data into Tableau 5 times faster, perform queries to analyze data up to 3 times faster, and pull in a much larger dataset for analysis that was impractical before.
