Connect to more data

Connect to data on-premises or in the cloud, whether it’s a database or a spreadsheet. Access, combine and clean disparate data without writing code. Tableau Prep Builder intelligently pushes operations down to the database when possible, leveraging existing database investments for fast flow execution.

Open the door for collaboration

Stay in the flow of your analysis. It’s easy to open your output with Tableau Desktop or share it with others via Tableau Server or Tableau Cloud. Easy sharing reduces friction and helps you bridge the gap between data preparation and analytics for better business results.

See immediate results

If you want to edit a value, you select and directly edit. Change your join type, and see the result right away. With each action, you instantly see your data change, even on millions of rows of data. Tableau Prep Builder gives you the freedom to reorder steps and experiment without consequence.
