Hands on with Tableau (self-service analytics for you)

Timothy Louie1

1Tableau Software, Canberra, ACT


Tableau is focused on one thing – helping people see and understand data. Organizations everywhere, from non-profits to global enterprises, and across all industries and departments, are empowering their people with data. With Tableau they are finding opportunities in their business that they have never seen before. Learn more about how organizations like yours are using our platform to drive their business forward.

Tableau is all about making data analytics fast, easy, beautiful and most importantly, useful.

Join us for our Tableau Hands On session and we’ll show you how to connect to your data and visualise your queries without writing a single line of code. You’ll learn how to create a dashboard from scratch and see how you can quickly analyse, visualise and share information and publish your results. Whether you measure your data in petabytes or in billions of rows, Tableau is built to work as fast as you do.

It’s self-service analytics, for everyone.

Who should attend?  Anyone interested in transforming data into meaningful visualisations! Although the content is geared towards beginners, people of all Tableau skill levels are welcome.

What is it?  We believe there’s a better way to analyse your data. Come to this hands-on session to learn how to tell a story with your data… and have some fun along the way! After attending a Tableau Hands On session, you can go off and explore your own data, or upskill further with both online and in-person training.

Please note this is a hands-on class that requires you to bring your laptop with Tableau Desktop installed. If you don’t have the software already, please download a copy here.

Having worked in the Business Intelligence and Data Management for over 25 years, Tim has seen and used his fair share of BI analytics   and Data Warehousing tools in that time. But when he first downloaded Tableau Desktop, it was love at first sight. He knew he had to join Tableau. He now spends his days helping customers ‘to see and understand their data’ as a member of the Tableau ANZ team. You can reach him at tlouie@tableau.com.
