Data Visualisation Using Tableau For Beginners
In this data age, the ability to extract value from data is highly sought after by both individuals and organisations. And it takes hard technical skills to manage the large datasets and extract insights from the data, but it comes to nought unless the insights can be clearly and quickly communicated to the intended audience.
Tableau is the fastest-growing data visualisation tool used in the Business Intelligence industry today. It’s a visual analytics platform transforming the way businesses use data to solve problems. It helps in simplifying raw data into the very easily understandable format and the great thing about Tableau is that it doesn’t require any technical or programming skills to operate which is why it’s perfect for beginners.
This workshop aims to provide a broad but practical overview of the entire analytics value chain; with a focus on using data visualisation to convey intended messages from the data to an audience. Attendees will learn the fundamentals of visualisation and get their hands “dirty” building different visualisations using Tableau (cited in Gartner’s magic quadrant as one of the top platforms for business intelligence in 2019). This is targeted at professionals and managers in non-analyst roles but may be required to work with or make sense of data and presenting data in their work.
