A hands-on assessment project to explore the world of data analytics in operational excellence. Transform dirty data into meaningful information.
Tableau desktop (Business analytics anyone can use) – Tableau Desktop is based on breakthrough technology from Stanford University that lets you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more. Tableau is a system that supports people’s natural ability to think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.
