Tableau using BSCC data

Tableau is a dynamic Business Intelligence (BI) tool that can take in data and provide myriad options for data analysis – asking questions of the data.

There are various versions (Public – Free), Desktop, Prep, Server.  For the next couple months, I have the full version of Desktop, but will also focus on Public, which is not time-limited.  Only thing of note with Public, is to ensure that no confidential data is included.

In general, the strategy is to take known data (typically in an MS-Excel format) and upload to Tableau.  There may also be online data-sets that you can integrate into a Tableau Vizz.

As there are many moving parts of this system, I’ll place posts within the knowledgebase.
