Description

Data Art, Infographics, and Business Dashboards: What you can show vs. what you should show

Overwhelmed by the variety of data visualization examples you’re seeing in magazines, twitter feeds, or on Tableau Public? You’re not alone as we’re experience a deluge of creative -- and sometimes confusing -- ways to present data. If you’re also wondering “given all this, how should I present my data” you are again not alone.

In the first part of this meeting, five-time Tableau Zen Master and Big Book of Dashboards author, Steve Wexler, will explore how people processes (and mis-processes) information along with three overarching principles that will help you present your data so people can best understand it.

Tableau Data Prep

It is often said that anywhere from 70% - 80% of an analyst's time is spent preparing data for analysis. In recent years many data prep tools have hit the market (Alteryx, Lavastorm/Dataverse, Trifacta, Unifi, Paxata, Podium, etc.). Tableau is entering this market with their new, stand alone product called Maestro. The second part of this meeting will review initial findings from the Maestro beta test program, and also offer a comparison to the leader in the data prep market, Alteryx.
