Tableau - what is it?

A key feature of Tableau is its intuitive nature, making it easy for anyone to learn. As a starting point, mainly drag-and-drop visualizations are used. I can accomplish what would normally take me days/hours in Excel in a matter of minutes with Tableau.

Additionally, you do not need to have any programming or data experience. As a matter of fact, you do not need to know any programming, which is what makes this tool so desirable for beginners.

  • Manish Dixit
    I have only been using Tableau for about a month and this is by far the best training. Easy to follow instructions. Detailed and to-the-point explanations. Now I'm focusing on building more and more projects to brush up on my skills I would recommend this to anyone who is a beginner in Tableau.
  • Anurag Singh
    I'm the new one to Tableau. When you create a dashboard from scratch, that's superb. I mean you feel confident you can learn Tableau and are good at it. It's a great feeling for a new one to keep learning and never give up! Thanks, Shiva.
