About Tableau: Tableau is groundbreaking software that simplifies data visualization and makes it accessible to businesses, researchers, journalists, public administrators, and others. Tableau connects easily to nearly any data source, be it corporate Data Warehouse, Microsoft Excel or web-based data. It allows for instantaneous insight by transforming data into visually appealing, interactive visualizations called dashboards. This process takes only seconds or minutes rather than months or years, and is achieved through the use of an easy to use drag-and-drop interface.
