Why tableau?

Whether your data is in an on-premise database, a database, a data warehouse, a cloud application or an Excel file, you can analyse it with Tableau. You can create views of your data and share it with colleagues, customers, and partners. You can use Tableau to blend it with other data. And you can keep your data up to date automatically.

What is data visualisation?

Data visualisation refers to the techniques used to communicate data or information by encoding it as visual objects (e.g. points, lines or bars) contained in graphics.

What is data modelling?

Data modelling is the analysis of data objects that are used in a business or other context and the identification of the relationships amongst these data objects. Data modelling is a first step in doing object-oriented programming.
