Tableau is groundbreaking data visualization software that connects easily to nearly any data source. It allows for immediate insight by transforming data into visually appealing interactive visualizations called dashboards. This is achieved on the fly by way of an easy to use drag-and-drop interface. The goal of data visualization is to communicate information clearly and efficiently to users.
