What if without coding you can analyse and visualize your data and gain crucial insights? Seems like a hypothetical scenario, isn't it? But Tableau, a powerful visualization tool, has made this a reality.
Tableau allows you, with simple drag and drop, to work on the live datasets and visualize them in the form of a Bar chart, Pie chart, Histogram, Gantt chart, and many more.
Sounds Interesting. Right!!
Tableau is a visualization and software solution tool in the Business Intelligence industry used for transforming the raw data into an easily understandable format without any technical skill and coding knowledge.
Are you eager to know more about this fascinating visualization tool?
Everything at one place - Tableau Dashboard
Imagine if we consolidate different views on a single place!!
A dashboard in Tableau is a collection of several views or visualizations that enables us to compare a variety of data simultaneously in a single place. It displays different data views all at once.
Isn’t it magic??
Data Blending - The marvelous feature of Tableau
Data Blending is a method of combining data from multiple sources. What can we do when we have related data in multiple sources which we want to analyze in a single view, or when the related data in different sources are at a different level of granularity?
The Tableau feature Data Blending can be used in such cases. Data Blending brings additional information from a secondary data source and displays it with the primary data source in the view.
Want to build a Histogram of your data?
The histogram is a chart that displays the shape of distribution and consists of rectangles. The histogram looks like a bar chart, but it groups the values for continuous measures into bins or ranges.
You will wonder after knowing that you can create a histogram to visualize your data using Tableau.
Tableau creates a histogram by considering one measure. It creates an additional bin field for the measure, which is used in creating a histogram.
Too easy.. Right??
Visualize data in the form of Gantt Chart
The Gantt chart is a type of bar chart used for project management. The vertical axis outlines the task to be performed, and the horizontal axis outlines the time. The Gantt chart shows the duration of an activity or task for multiple values.
Unbelievable!! Tableau's flexibility and live updates provide us the facility to create the Gantt chart for our data from any source.
If you are managing project timelines or you want to understand data about events or activities, Tableau is the best tool you can use.
Stacked Bar Chart - Another interesting form
Stacked Bar Chart is a bar chart with the segmented bars. Each bar in the chart displays the whole, and segments in the bar represent the categories or part of the whole.
Tableau provides the facility to create the Stacked Bar Chart. In Tableau, we can create interactive shareable dashboards using Stacked Bar Chart to depict trends, variations in data.
Not only these, we can visualize our data in many forms in Tableau.
Heat Maps are everywhere
We see Heat Maps on the real estate, weather sites, that is, anywhere where data is to display.
Doctors, Engineers, sociologists, Marketers, and researchers use heat maps for making complex data understandable and actionable.
Heat Maps are used to represent data along with colors. It is a graphical representation of data that uses color-coding to represent different values.
Create your heat map with Tableau. Heat Map in Tableau helps us to compare data by their color.
Everyone’s favourite Pie Chart
Pie-chart is a circular graph representing proportions and percentages between categories by dividing the whole circle into proportional segments.
Each slice of the pie represents a proportion of each category.
With BI tool Tableau, we can create pie charts to visualize our data category wise, section wise, region wise.
Now, it's easier to analyze profits, loss, sales, and other statistical parameters using the pie chart in Tableau.
'Coz Donut Charts are Love
Donut chart is a simple pie chart with a blank center. When we want to visually compare the contribution of different items to the whole, then the donut chart is the best option.
You will be amazed to know that with Tableau you can visualize your data in the form of donut charts to compare the contribution of different items to the whole. We can create dashboards in Tableau using Donut charts.
Create your Waterfall Chart with Tableau
Waterfall charts are potent visuals for the data dashboards. They display how the initial value is incremented and decremented by the series of intermediate values, resulting in a final value.
Finance sectors mostly use Waterfall charts to exhibit how net value arrives. If one wants to represent how value starts, ends and how it gets there incrementally, then the Waterfall chart is the best option.
We can create Waterfall charts in Tableau. Tableau needs one Measure and one Dimension to create a Waterfall chart.
All in one box!!
Tableau can be considered as a single box that provides all the visual models in which one wants to represent its data. From bar charts, line charts to complex waterfall charts, Tableau shows me options enable the users to create dashboards to compare and analyze the live data.
A person can analyze the data, create dashboards and share them with multiple tenants using Tableau without any coding. Its drag and drop functionality makes it the powerful visualization tool and is used by many companies like LinkedIn, Amazon, Cisco, Walmart, and many more.
So what are you waiting for… Learn this incredible tool and become the master in visualizing the raw data into useful insights.
