Design Your Data: Tableau Bootcamp (Online)

April 11, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT


About This Workshop

Tableau is an incredibly powerful tool for exploring and visualizing your data. This day long bootcamp will allow people with no experience in Tableau to re-create all of its major charts and turn them into a functional, interactive dashboard by the end of the day.

Once people understand the power of Tableau they can quickly perform vital business analysis that would take 3-5x times as long with other software tools. When you are finished you’ll have a fully functional capability to harness Tableau’s native powers to aggregate, visualize, filter and segment your data in a way that will breathe new life into your organization..
