Tableau's Features that are Intuitive and Powerful
Visual Analysis in a Click
Powerful analytical tools—at your fingertips. Filter data dynamically, split trends across different categories or run an in-depth cohort analysis. Double-click geographic fields to put data on an interactive map. All without writing a single line of code.
Go deeper into your data with new calculations on existing data. Drag reference lines and forecasts, build box plots and see statistical summaries of your data. Experiment with trend analyses, regressions, correlations, and much more. PhD not required.
Make better sense of your available data—quickly and easily. Rename fields and modify number formats. Split your data into multiple fields or combine fields into groups. Create subsets of your data by simply selecting groups of points. Use those sets to filter other views. Now it’s easy for you to make your data understandable to everyone.
You get the benefit of years of research on the best ways to represent data, built right into your workflow. Optimized color schemes, automatic chart types and elegant design. Communicate insight in the most effective way, automatically for easy visualization and data interpretation.
When you want to take data offline or bring it in-memory, Tableau’s Data Engine lets you extract data for ad hoc analysis of massive data in seconds. It combines advances in database and computer graphics technology to make even huge datasets possible to analyze on a laptop or mobile device.
Beautiful, interactive maps are key to understanding place. Double-click geographic fields to put data on a map. Pan, zoom, filter or search to focus on your insights. And with detailed map data worldwide, you can answer questions whether you are working with Australian postcodes or Brazilian municipalities.
