Data analysis and visualisation in Tableau Desktop
Tableau Desktop is installed on a local desktop or laptop. With Tableau Desktop you can connect to an unprecedented number of different data sources (> 100). Then, you can link this data together and transform it into visualisations in the form of interactive reports and dashboards.
Get useful insights quickly
With Tableau Desktop you can leave graph builders behind. Live visual analytics unleashes infinite data research and interactive dashboards help you to uncover hidden insights at any time. Tableau uses the innate capacity of people to quickly recognise visual patterns – this reveals both the everyday possibilities your data holds but also the eureka-moments.
Connect with more data sources
Connect to local and cloud data – whether it’s big data, an SQL database, a spreadsheet or cloud applications such as Google Analytics and Salesforce. In Tableau Desktop you have access to, and you can combine, different data sources without coding. Experienced users can also pivot, split and manage metadata to optimise their data sources. Analyses start with data, get more out of yours with Tableau.
Answer complex questions
Exceptional analytics require more than a nice dashboard. In Tableau Desktop with existing data, drag-and-drop reference lines and predictions you can make powerful calculations and evaluate statistical summaries. Make something clear with trend analysis, regression analysis and correlations to create proven statistical understanding. Go further: ask new questions, discover trends, identify opportunities and confidently make data-driven decisions.
Create interactive maps
Answer the ‘where’ as well as the ‘why’ and create interactive maps automatically. With built-in zip codes you can map more than 50 countries worldwide quickly and easily. Use customised geo codes and areas for personalised regions, such as sales districts.
Everybody can now know
Replace static slides for live insightful stories and easily share them with others. In a few steps you can make a convincing report that enables everyone you work with to ask questions by analysing interactive visualisations with fresh data. Be part of data collaboration and increase the impact of your insights.
