The era of "big data" has exploded due to the rise of cloud computing, which provides an abundance of computational power and storage allowing organizations of all sorts to capture and store data. Leveraging that data effectively can provide timely insights and competitive advantage. This course will introduce students to Tableau, which was built to connect to a wide range of data sources and allow users to quickly create visualizations of connected data to gain insights, show trends, and create reports. Students will learn Tableau's data connection capabilities and visualization features which go far beyond those that can be found in spreadsheets, allowing them to create compelling and interactive worksheets, dashboards, and stories, that bring their data to life and allow them to take thoughtful action.
At course completion, participants will have knowledge of:
- Tableau Fundamentals
- Connecting to, Preparing, and Exploring Data
- Managing, Sorting and Grouping Data
