- Imagine being able to answer virtually any business question by dragging-and-dropping your data into a free-form visual canvas. You create beautiful graphs, reports and dashboards.
- You then share those results in just a few clicks.
- Using Tableau Desktop, you can build and interact with views of data.
- These views allow you to query, display, analyze, filter, sort, group, drill down, drill up, calculate, organize, summarize, and present data faster and more efficiently than ever before.
- With Tableau Sever and Tableau Public you can share and embed your live, interactive views, reports, and dashboards so that colleagues can interact, customize or monitor them.
The various ways that Tableau can help you get more from your data are discussed in more detail below.
- Visually Analyze Data Rapidly
- Build Interactive Dashboards
- Share and Interact
See and Understand
- People need effective views of data to understand results, discover relationships, find patterns, locate outliers, uncover structure, and summarize findings.
- how well can you see what is going on in your business?
- Tableau lets you ask rapid questions of your data by letting you iteratively create and modify live, interactive charts, reports and dashboards in minutes.
- These views are fundamentally more useful for analysis than those provided by pre-canned reports and traditional dashboards.
- Tableau gives you interactive visual tables, picture-perfect data displays, side-by-side comparisons, and graphic encodings using color, size and shape.
- Without any programming or training, users can see and understand data like they’ve never been able to before.
Browse and Explore
- Tableau is the world’s leading exploratory browser for databases.
- A key step in the analysis process is the ability to start with “big picture” summaries of data and then quickly focus on detailed areas of interest.
- To conduct effective analysis, it is crucial for people to quickly change what data they are viewing and how it is being viewed.
- Tableau’s flexible interface enables this free form exploration.
- Exploratory analysis is further supported with unlimited undo and redo, allowing people to surf their databases much like they surf the web.
Build Interactive Dashboards
Build Dashboards People Can Understand
- Use Tableau to build dashboards that communicate clearly and directly.
- Each element of a dashboard presents information in the most effective way possible, based on the latest research in human perception.
- Tableau provides the display type that best expresses the data—bar and line charts, maps, tables, scatter plots, and more.
- Tableau helps you build dashboards that inform and impress.
Monitor and Measure
- Use Tableau to build analytical dashboards that compare information and track performance against goals. These dashboards can be based on multiple data sources.
- They are fully interactive, allowing you to drill into and explore information directly from the dashboard.
- You can also apply common filters to all the worksheets, allowing you to change the filter and watch an array of visual displays update simultaneously.
Interact and Drill-down
- Sometimes you need to answer additional questions within a dashboard.
- With Tableau, viewers can dynamically filter, highlight, drill-down and link across multiple views in one dashboard.
- This essentially creates an interactive visual analysis application on the fly.
Share and Interact
Imagine pasting Tableau’s vivid multi-dimensional results into Microsoft Office applications and sharing them with others. our users have a reputation for producing high-impact presentations that are easy to understand.
Publish and Embed
- Share your graphs, reports, and dashboards by publishing them with Tableau Server.
- Anyone with proper data credentials can view and interact with those visualizations using just a browser.
- They can even save custom views, make comments, or even tag favorites.
- Don’t want people to visit a specific URL destination for their views? No problem—embed them in virtually any web application with just a few lines of code.
