A workplace designed for human beings is what differentiates today’s leading companies. It’s what helps companies attract and retain talent, the number one issue on the minds of CEOs. What does it mean to design a workplace for people? Think about how workers use technology at home versus how they use it at work. You probably know there are some differences, but the gap turns out to be fairly large.
When you put data on a map, you're already telling a story. Mapping in data visualization is a fast and powerful way to convey insights. Whether you're dealing with retail analytics trends, disease outbreaks, or government analytics, maps are an essential tool for your dashboards.
How can data scientists nudge nonprofits to embrace the numbers and the insights within? Start small, says Do Good Data conference founder Andrew Means. Find something you can see through, from start to finish.
At Tableau, we strive to give users the best tools to analyze their data and arrive at new insights. One such tool for server administrators is the Admin Views feature. Pre-packaged in every installation of server, these views allow administrators to monitor and analyze data from their own Tableau server, thus using BI analytics on their own BI solution.
Tableau Online is excited to be the first member of the Tableau family to release the new and improved 9.0 Server experience to our customers. The new user interface is cleaner, more modern, and even easier to use than before. Everyone involved in beta testing has gotten a sneak peek, but we thought it was time for our entire Tableau Online community to be in the know.
This month, the Tableau community was abuzz with tips, tricks, and, yes, frustrations. ('I Hate When Tableau Does That'—is as great a read as the title suggests!) Seriously, there's a LOT of excellent training material here.
Thousands of Tableau enthusiasts joined us to celebrate the launch of Tableau 9.0 during our first-ever Virtual Tableau User Group event this week. The live feed from our Seattle headquarters reached Tableau User Group members across the world, many of them gathered at 25 local TUG viewing parties across the U.S. and Canada.
This post will continue to look at examples of typical analytic questions that all share the common property of requiring us to aggregate data on different levels than the main focus of the visualization, such as the following: What is the largest deal closed per salesperson, and the average of these deals per country? What is the cumulative number of customers acquired per day by market? What is the difference in year to date profit of this year versus last year, relative to the last day the data was refreshed?
Continue discussing Level of Detail (LOD) Expressions. Since it is often easiest to learn through examples, we will showcase some common analytical questions that LOD Expressions solve elegantly. We will start with simple examples and get progressively more complex throughout the series.
We're putting the finishing touches on Tableau 9.0, and we're excited to hit the road (and the Internet!) to show you what's new in 9.0. Today, we're pleased to announce the dates and cities for the Tableau 9.0 Roadshow, and to announce a brand new "show" for people who can't make it to a roadshow date.
Learn more detail about an addition to the Tableau calculation language. The language changes are small, deceptively small, but the impact on your data analysis will be profound. Level of Detail Expressions (LOD Expressions) in Tableau 9 will enable richer and more reusable visualizations.
