Live Webinar

Conquering Cross-Database Joins

We're sorry, this event has ended.

Join us for a live webinar exclusively for BAC on October 20.

At Tableau we help people see and understand data. Seven words that drive everything we do. And they’ve never been more relevant. Tableau is all about making data analytics fast, easy, beautiful, and most importantly – useful. Helping people gain insight into their data to solve unexpected problems is what drives us.

You are encouraged and invited to attend the session regardless of whether or not you are a current Tableau user.

Tableau recently introduced cross-database joins, a powerful tool that takes data exploration to the next level. In this session, you will learn how to combine data from multiple locations into a single datasource and work around typical roadblocks you might encounter. We'll also take a peek behind the curtain to see how cross-database joins work internally, including a look at:

  • What data is getting moved and how
  • How to resolve common data mismatch issues (Custom SQL, type change for Text and Excel connections)
  • Importance of table order in join relations (clustering, culling, etc.)
  • Known performance cliffs and limitations - A sneak peek into current development work
