In many organisations, ‘data prep’ (data preparation) is reserved for people with special skills: the data engineers and data scientists of a company. Only after the data has been prepared can analysts and business users start performing their analysis. Thanks to Tableau Prep, this can now be done differently and everyone in your organisation can prepare data faster than ever before and more intuitively. You give your teams the tools they need to confidently combine, shape and clean up data so that they can gain insight and make better business decisions.
Tableau Prep consists of two products: Tableau Prep Builder for building your data flows and Tableau Prep Conductor for sharing and managing flows within the organisation.
Share your flows and execute them through your server
With Tableau Prep Conductor you can easily publish and execute flows in your server environment. You can securely share data sources with Tableau Server or Tableau Online. You can create an environment where everyone in your organisation can work with prepared and updated data.
Plan your flows
Plan your flows so that they are executed when you need them: during the day or at night. Automate your data preparation processes so that new data is always prepared and ready for analysis.
Check the data flows on your server
Control flows with the same tools that are now available on Tableau Server. Use the status page, admin views, and history information to view the health of flows on the entire server, so you can quickly address any issues. Always see if your flows are healthy thanks to proactive warnings.
