Tableau Community

Build your organization’s data community

How to make your teams truly data-driven

Two people or two thousand people—if you’re coming together to learn and grow your analytics skills, you’re part of a data community. At Tableau, we know vibrant data communities. We're talking about you, DataFam. We love it when our customers share across industries, geographies, and roles.

If you find a part of the Tableau Community that resonates with you, take it back to your organization’s internal data teams. We have guides and best practices that adapt our most popular Community programs for your own use.

Build your data community today.

Why do we need a data community?

The smart way to accelerate your organization’s data journey: establish a data community where all employees are empowered to gather, analyze, and apply insights.

The case for data communities

Create conditions where people can immerse themselves in the language of data, encouraging data literacy and fueling excitement around data and analytics.

Solve the data literacy gap

Investments in data collection and analysis technology lose their value when employees aren’t properly trained on how to use data. Leverage communities to improve literacy and usage.

How do we begin?

Gauge your internal readiness.  You can start small like creating a direct message channel for analytics questions or hosting informal workshops like "lunch and learns". Then when you're ready, we’ve packaged some of our most popular Community programs. Use these resources as a framework and customize them for your organization’s needs.
