The advent of cloud computing and storage has ushered in the era of big data.  With the abundance of computational power and storage, organizations and employees with many different roles and responsibilities can benefit from analyzing data to find timely insights and gain a competitive advantage.

Data-backed visualizations allow anyone to explore, analyze, and report insights and trends from data.  Tableau® software is designed for this purpose.  Tableau was built to connect to a wide range of data sources, and allows users to quickly create visualizations of connected data to gain insights, show trends, and create reports.  Beyond the fundamental capabilities of creating data-driven visualizations, Tableau allows user to manipulate data with calculations to show insights, make visualizations interactive, and perform statistical analysis.  This gives users the ability to create and share data-driven insights with peers, executives, and clients.
