Finance Analytics

Tableau helps Finance departments make their organization's most important decisions: how they spend their time and resources. Businesses use Tableau to make finance analysis and reporting more efficient, get more insights and value out of their financial data, and increase their organization's focus on its strategy and objectives. That means lower costs, more revenue, and a better bottom line.

When it comes to finance analytics, Tableau delivers capabilities that are necessary from the small business to the large enterprise. With strong data governance, the ability to work with existing infrastructure to keep data secure, and a user friendly experience, Tableau makes it easy to get trusted data to the right people at the right time.
