Data Visualization Using Tableau

Good visualizations should extractinformation from complicated datasets so that theinformation is clear and concise. Now the question comes which Tool can we use for a better understanding of Data? The Answer is Tableau because

  • The inbuilt AI gives it more power than any other tools, through which you only needs to drag and drop the data and Tableau Engine will display the most suitable visualization for your data, which definitely you can change and customize as per your need. Also customization is way better than any other BI as it can be formatted to the slightest detail.
  • Tableau is very good with creating processes and calculations.

This makes it easier to create and apply recurring processes. Tableau’s flexibility allows users to create custom formulas that can be applied to a filter or a field.
  • Data storytelling is also one of the unique and easy to use features in Tableau which makes it different from other.
