Why Tableau is popular
Tableau Desktop is based on breakthrough technology from Stanford University that lets you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.
The Tableau team has done years of research to build a system that supports a person’s natural ability to think visually. The platform shifts fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.
It’s so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it. Get more results for less effort. And it’s 10 – 100 times faster than existing solutions.
