Organizations need a governance framework to ensure confidence in the data its employees use to make business decisions. A modern analytics platform grants the ability for organizations to more comfortably design and define their governance processes—whether soft guidelines or firm boundaries, or likely somewhere in between.
Reaping the benefits of governed data access
Tableau Server is a modern, self-service analytics platform with many built-in features to promote security, governance, data exploration, and collaboration. Data Server, which is part of Tableau Server, is arguably the most powerful of these tools.
If you'd like to learn more about Data Server, you can also check out our whitepaper Enabling Governed Data Access with Data Server.
This webcast will teach you how Data Server can help you:
- Reduce the proliferation of data sources and analytics content through governance processes, increasing data quality across the organization
- Centrally manage and curate metadata, including sharing standard calculations and field definitions to create consistency throughout your data environment
- Simplify how users access data stored in your databases, including integrating permissions and removing the need to deploy database drivers on local machines
- Optimize processes that ensure confident ad hoc data exploration, like refreshing data extracts once and automatically updating all connected workbooks
