Tableau is a data visualization software that can easily connect to a wide variety of data sources. Tableau allows for rapid insight by transforming data into highly appealing, interactive visualizations called dashboards. Users can create dashboards by using available BI data or by using their own existing data, whether it's in a database, data warehouse, or an Excel spreadsheet. These dashboards can then be uploaded and shared via Tableau Server.
Tableau is best suited to visualize aggregated data through graphs and charts, not tables and lists. Any reporting needs requiring a table or list of data should be handled using our SAP Web Intelligence software.
Users can log in to Tableau Server using their Windows Active Directory information. Completed dashboards will be saved to the appropriate site on Tableau Server and can be accessed from there.
