Data-backed visualizations allow anyone to explore, analyze, and report insights and trends from data. Tableau® software is designed for this purpose. Tableau was built to connect to a wide range of data sources and allows users to quickly create visualizations of connected data to gain insights, show trends, and create reports. Beyond the fundamental capabilities of creating data driven visualizations, Tableau allows users to manipulate data with calculations to show insights, make visualizations interactive, and perform statistical analysis. This gives users the ability to create and share data driven insights with peers, executives, and clients.
This course is designed for professionals in a variety of job roles who are currently using Tableau to perform numerical or general data analysis, visualization, and reporting. They need to provide data visualizations from multiple data sources, or combine data to show comparisons, manipulate data through calculations, create interactive visualizations, or create visualizations that showcase insights from statistical analysis.
This course is also designed for students who plan to obtain Tableau Desktop Certified Associate certification, which requires candidates to pass the Tableau Desktop Certified Associate exam.
