Tableau Desktop Tableau Desktop helps knowledge workers make sense of the many kinds of data they encounter every day. The defining capability of Tableau Desktop is the interactive experience it provides for exploring and analyzing data. By fundamentally integrating data analysis and visualization, the company’s products provide a visual window into data trapped in spreadsheets and databases, fostering greater engagement with data and allowing people to answer questions, develop insights and solve problems. Tableau Desktop’s major capabilities comprise: Visual Analytics: Tableau Desktop empowers people to ask questions by composing drag-and-drop pictures of their data. Analytical Depth: A primary aspect of Tableau Desktop is its ability to marry visualization with deep analytics. Users could filter and sort their data, create calculations, drill into underlying information, define sets and cohorts, perform statistical analysis and derive correlations between diverse data sets with agility and relative ease. Data Access: Tableau Desktop lets people access and query various common data sources, from traditional database systems, such as Oracle and SQL Server, to new data stores, such as SAP HANA and Teradata Aster, to Web applications, such as salesforce.com and Google Analytics, to spreadsheets and files, to newly emerging data sources, such as Hadoop and NoSQL databases. Users could connect to these data sources with a few clicks, without any scripting or programming. Live Query: Tableau Desktop translates users’ interactions into live queries. As people use the drag-and-drop interface to examine information, they are automatically generating queries against their database. Tableau Desktop could generate queries in a range of query languages, including Structured Query Language (SQL), Multidimensional Expressions (MDX), and Salesforce Object Query Language (SOQL). Each query is optimized for the target platform and its performance and analytical characteristics. In-memory Query: Tableau Desktop contains an in-memory data engine that could be used for analysis. Data Integration: Various questions require combining data from multiple sources. Tableau Desktop provides various ways for people to combine data without requiring a typical data loading and transformation project. Sharing and Presentation: Tableau Desktop allows users to author and distribute visualizations and dashboards with the ease expected of everyday office tools, such as spreadsheets. Tableau Server Tableau Server is a business intelligence platform with enterprise-class data management, scalability, and security. The collaborative features of Tableau Server are designed to foster sharing of data to improve the dissemination of information across an organization and promote improved decision-making. Tableau Server’s major capabilities comprise: Shared Content: Tableau Server provides an easy-to-navigate repository of shared visualizations and dashboards within an organization. Shared Data: Just as Tableau Server is a platform for shared analysis, it is also a platform for shared data. Organizations could use Tableau Server to centrally manage enterprise data sources and metadata enabling knowledge sharing, efficiency, data consistency and security.
