A software system designed by Tableau Software.
Tableau is business intelligence software that allows anyone to connect to data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive, sharable dashboards with a few more. It’s easy enough that any Excel user can learn it, but powerful enough to satisfy even the most complex analytical problems. Securely sharing your findings with others only takes seconds.
The result is BI software that you can trust to actually deliver answers to the people that need them.
Today’s organizations need efficient and scalable deployable BI tools in order to accomplish their goals. All too often, onboarding a new BI tool is an effort of weeks, months or even years–and maintenance is highlighted by a never-ending stream of user requests and expensive consulting bills.
Tableau takes a different approach. Installing the software (yes, even Tableau Server), takes minutes. Configuring the installation is straightforward–since business users can manage the software and the userbase on their own. Connecting Tableau to your existing databases takes seconds, skips the scripting, and can be accomplished by anyone. Scalability? Tableau Server has the experience of Tableau Public, which can handle millions of distinct users at a time (see right).
The result? BI software that gives people the answers that they need, and lets IT focus on other tasks.
Tableau Desktop is a powerful data discovery and exploration application that allows you to answer pressing questions in seconds. This video shows how you can use Tableau’s drag and drop interface to visualize any data, explore different views, and even combine multiple databases together with ease.
Unlike other business intelligence tools, there is no need for wizards or complex scripting, anyone who understands the business problem can address it with a visualization of the relevant data. When the analysis is finished, sharing with others is as easy as publishing to Tableau Server.
Tableau is powerful for analyzing data, but amazing insights are meant to be shared with everyone… and explored further! Tableau Server is business intelligence software that allows you to publish the visualizations you create in Tableau Desktop to a common and secure place on your network. This enables anyone with permissions to view and interact with each other’s dashboards and answer their own questions. The visualization below shows a common style of executive dashboard–but with the added power of interactivity and exploration.
