About This Workshop

Tableau is an incredibly powerful tool for exploring and visualizing your data. This day long bootcamp will allow people with no experience in Tableau to re-create all of its major charts and turn them into a functional, interactive dashboard by the end of the day. /p style="text-align:justify">

Once people understand the power of Tableau they can quickly perform vital business analysis that would take 3-5x times as long with other software tools. When you are finished you’ll have a fully functional capability to harness Tableau’s native powers to aggregate, visualize, filter and segment your data in a way that will breathe new life into your organization..
