Tableau is a business intelligence software that lets users visualize and understand data. The platform offers tools for creating interactive and shareable dashboards, graphs, maps, and other visualizations that can help turn raw data into actionable insights. Tableau's drag-and-drop interface makes it easy for people to analyze data without needing extensive programming skills. It can connect to multiple sources of data like spreadsheets, cloud databases, or big data platforms. The platform provides real-time analytics through its patented technology called Visual Query Language (VizQL), which translates drag-and-drop actions into database queries behind the scenes on the fly. Tableau also has collaboration features that allow teams to work together on projects, sharing their findings across the organization securely.
