Andrew Lucas Mini Review of Tableau Desktop
Jinfo Article

19th March 2015

By Andrew Lucas


As part of the FreePint Topic Series "Making Information Visible", Andrew Lucas reviews Tableau Software's Desktop product, an easy, quick to install and use business intelligence and data visualisation application which is content-agnostic. The company mission is to "help people see and understand data", and Tableau is designed to be used by a wide range of business users and functions - any reasonably proficient Excel user can access its analytical and visualisation capabilities. Competitors in data visualisation range from those at the enterprise end such as IBM and Oracle to Salesforce Analytics Cloud and smaller competitors such as Qlik, Datawatch and Pentaho.
