Let us take a look at Gartner’s Magic quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics platforms:
If there is one company which stands out even in the leader’s quadrant, it is Tableau! And it is so for a good reason. Here is what Gartner says about Tableau:
Tableau’s intuitive, visual-based data discovery capabilities have transformed business users’ expectations about what they can discover in data and share without extensive skills or training with a BI platform.
It further says:
Tableau has a strong position on the Ability to Execute axis of the Leaders quadrant, because of the company’s successful “land and expand” strategy that has driven much of its growth momentum. Many of Gartner’s BI and analytics clients are seeing Tableau usage expand in their organizations and have had to adapt their strategy.
Achieving this feat in a short period of existence (slightly more than 10 years) is nothing short of exemplary. It almost feels magical feat to achieve in a capital intensive industry. But Tableau has achieved it and you understand why the minute you start using it.
The software is simple to use even for a person who does not have a technical background. It takes away a lot of burden from the end user and performs those task itself. For example, if you are working on a geo-spatial data, most of the tools will require you to map the data with latitude and longitude outside of the system. Not Tableau! It just asks you to input the name of the location and does all the hard work of mapping latitude and longitude itself.
Given its increasing presence, it was only matter of time before we got a good learning path for Tableau on Analytics Vidhya. And today, we are happy to announce the same. Again, the philosophy of the learning path is same – free resources collated in a structure, which is easy to follow along with practice sets and exercises.
