Tableau do to help you Fall in Love?
Create Dashboards. Build dashboards that track performance against
goals. Combine different databases into a single view. Use live data, so you never have to
repeat the same analysis. Link and filter all the displays simultaneously
See and Understand
- People need effective layouts of data to understand results, discover
relationships, find patterns, locate outliers, uncover structure and summarise findings. How
well can you see what is going on in your business or organisation?
Tableau lets you flip
through hundreds of views of your databases in minutes. These views are fundamentally more
useful for analysis than those provided by pre-canned reports and traditional
Tableau gives you
interactive visual tables, picture-perfect data displays, side-by-side comparisons and
graphic encodings using color, sise and shape. Without any programming or training, users can
see and understand databases like they have never been able to
Pivot and Refine
- Tableau is a system in which
problem solving occurs in a tightly knit cycle of visual analysis. With no training, users
can conduct fluid "Q&A" sessions with data. They simply point Tableau to a database and
start building drag & drop views of data.
A first view not only
provides an insight (for example, "Costs are increasing."), but also suggests additional
questions (for example, "Which products or services are responsible for the increase?").
Users can immediately pivot the first view to reveal the answer to the second question. The
true value of Tableau is that it helps people navigate a series of questions and answers
using an insightful interface.
Isolate and Extract
- What if you could dive
into databases and unearth hidden gems in seconds? The outliers? The hidden clusters? Tableau
users quickly uncover the "ah-ha" findings behind summaries and trends, because they can
drill down, identify useful groups of information, and extract exactly the groups they want
(e.g., a group of highly profitable customers; or bottlenecks in a process). Interesting
groups of information stand out clearly when you adopt visual analysis. Even better, once you
locate items of interest, you can select the data and export it to other applications with a
few mouse clicks. You can use maps and hyperlinks to web pages too.
Browse and Explore - Tableau is the world's leading exploratory browser for databases. A
key productivity pattern 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.
Query and Summarise - No knowledge of SQL
needed - Tableau accomplishes so much because it's an interactive query and
analysis front-end for databases. Does Tableau connect to relational databases and files? Yes
it does. Does Tableau connect to large OLAP data warehouses? Yes it does. With no knowledge
of query languages like SQL or MDX, business people can produce analyses and reports that tap
the value of their data.
Measure - Use Tableau to build analytical dashboards that compare information
and track performance against goals. These dashboards can be based on multiple data sources.
And they are fully interactive, allowing you to drill into and explore information directly
from the dashboard. You can also apply common filters to all of the worksheets, allowing you
to change the filter and watch an array of visual displays update
Publish and Present
- Imagine pasting Tableau's vivid
multi-dimensional results into Web pages or Microsoft Office applications and sharing them
with others. Our users have a reputation for producing high-impact presentations that are
easy to understand. If you believe in presenting fantastic visual summaries of data, Tableau
is a crucial addition for your toolset.
