Tableau is fun! It allows creativity and gives freedom to explore, understand, design, and share. Tableau doesn’t lock you into a single path to a solution. Tableau designers feel like artists with data as paint and Tableau as a blank canvas. Tableau's uniqueness comes from its paradigm. Tableau is different from traditional BI products that force you to select a chart type and then match data to various components of the chart. You won't be confronted with wizards or pre-built dashboards that give you some insight at first but fail to deliver additional insight when you need it. Instead, Tableau allows hands-on interaction with data; it's easy to get into a flow of asking questions, uncovering new insights, raising new questions and answers, and finally designing a data story to share with others.

The aim of this course is to equip you with the concepts and practical applications that will allow you to use Tableau to explore, analyze, visualize, and share the stories contained in your data.

Beginning with the fundamentals, such as data preparation, you’ll soon learn how to build and customize your own data visualizations and dashboards, essential for high-level visibility and effective data storytelling. The course will show how to build basic charts in Tableau and moves on to building more complex charts by incorporating different Tableau features and interactivity components. Next, you’ll learn to perform different calculations such as row-level, aggregate-level, Level of Details, and table calculations. You'll learn the key concepts behind calculations and how they work in Tableau. You’ll also find out how to do trend analysis and forecasting using clustering and distribution models to inform your analytics. But it’s not just about you – when it comes to data it’s all about availability and access. That’s why we’ll show you how to share your Tableau visualizations. It’s only once insights are shared and communicated that you – and your organization – will start making smarter and informed decisions. And really, that’s exactly what this course is for. 

By the end of this course, you’ll know how to analyze and communicate data and insights more efficiently and effectively by creating compelling interactive charts, dashboards, and stories in Tableau.
