It allows users to connect to various data sources and transform raw data into meaningful insights. With its intuitive drag-and-drop interface, users can easily create interactive dashboards, charts, and reports.
Tableau provides a wide range of data visualization options, including bar charts, maps, scatter plots, and more, enabling users to explore data from different angles.
