Tableau Software


Tableau Desktop from Tableau Software is an online Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software. It is a self-service analytics application which helps you explore your data and answer to questions quickly. The application makes use of a patented technology based on many years of analysis and research done at Stanford University for translating every mouse click into the database queries and presenting the result via graphical visualizations.  It lets you perform every kind of query without writing even a single line of code. It also lets you shift between the views and use the drag-n-drop facility to view as much information as you want from different data sources as per your wish. With it, you can develop your own real time, interactive dashboards with whichever metrics and data you want and share those insights through Tableau Online and Tableau Server.

Tableau Server lets you publish dashboard from Tableau Desktop on any mobile-based device or any browser. With it, you can embed the dashboards on your company portals with the feature to add comments on those dashboards. You can also obtain updates on data, filter data as well as drill down into data. You can refresh these all both automatically and manually. Tableau Online is a hosted edition of Tableau Server. The former provides you with online live access to Tableau dashboard via cloud.
