Why Learn Tableau?

by | Jan 7, 2022 | Blogs | 0 comments

As data analysts, Tableau is one of the fundamental softwares we must master. But why? Here are 4 reasons why you should pick up Tableau. 

  1. Ease of Learning

Tableau has a user-friendly interface and allows for users to quickly learn how to build complex visualisations with ease. It makes use of a simple drag-and drop interface that encompasses its advanced features, which is designed to be highly intuitive and allow for users to quickly understand its functionalities.

  1. Great Data Integration

As data analysts, we often have to work with data from different sources that are structured differently. Tableau supports data visualisation using almost any data source existing out there, ranging from files such as Excelsheets, PDFs and JSON files to servers such as MySQL, Amazon Redshift and Google Sheets. It even accepts outputs from other data pipelining and visualisation software such as Alteryx and SAP. By using Tableau, analysts can minimize loss of data due to inability to accommodate different data sources. 

Furthermore, Tableau allows for seamless integration of different data sources through cross-database joining to create an integrated data source that can enable users to create more holistic visualisations.

  1. Support for large volumes of data

Tableau supports the use of large volumes of data and users can manage large databases without compromising on the performance of their visualisations. Furthermore, if users wish to further speed up their visualisations, Tableau offers users the flexibility of using static versions of their datasets which allows for faster loading. 

  1. Abundant Job Opportunities

Knowing Tableau can definitely boost your resume and create more job opportunities for you.  Tableau is an industry leader, with Gartner Research naming it as the leader in the business intelligence and data visualisation market seven times in a row. Furthermore, due to the fact that it is easy to use and has practical use cases in different fields, a candidate with Tableau knowledge is in high demand.
