What is Tableau?
Before we dive into the content below, let’s do a quick overview of the different parts of the Tableau platform. With Tableau, you can quickly connect to almost any data source and start getting insights immediately.See Tableau in action
The Tableau platform
The Tableau Platform is made up of three foundational products that work together to create a cohesive data flow from raw information to clear insights.
Prepare your data
Analyse and explore
Fuel unlimited data exploration with Tableau Desktop. Interactive dashboards help you uncover hidden insights on the fly.
Connect to data
Clean up messy data
Often, data is dirty or not structured correctly to analyse it effectively in Tableau Desktop. Tableau Prep, our data prep product, empowers more people to get to analysis faster by helping them quickly and confidently combine, shape and clean their data. Try Tableau Prep for free.

Build a data visualisation
Now that you've connected to data, it’s time to start building a data visualisation (viz for short) in Tableau so you can see your data up close.
Refine your visualisation
Build a map
Combine views into a dashboard
Combine multiple views into a single, interactive dashboard. Include filters, images and webpages in your dashboard for a more complete view of your data.

Share and collaborate
Don't keep your insights to yourself – share them with your colleagues. Tableau Server and Tableau Cloud allow you to publish visualisations and dashboards to the web so others can interact with your analytics and answer their own questions of the data. Sharing and collaborating with Tableau
