Canada Federal Government Live Webinar Series

Decisions require information, which is derived from data and a human’s analysis and interpretation. When data can be converted into information faster, decision makers can make more informed decisions – this leads to better outcomes, benefitting the greater public good. 

From the analysis of data, the creation of interactive dashboards, and their governed sharing and collaboration, the Tableau platform makes this entire process easier, and faster.  Join us in this live interactive workshop series, where you can meet and interact with Ottawa based Tableau experts, hear from other Federal Gov departments, and learn about a variety of visual analytics topics – from beginner to advanced.
