Forecasting is a word that tends to get some interesting reactions from people I meet. The most frequent reaction I think I encounter is one of slight intimidation. Forecasting has a simple point – use history to predict the most statistically likely future. When it...

I’ve seen it a dozen times in classes that I have taught. A student is digging Tableau (who doesn’t?) and all of the ways that it can present data. While working through the classroom examples, everything is going smoothly. Then, someone connects to their own...

Now that I’ve recovered and am fully awake from my overdose on data, I thought I’d share some follow-up thoughts on TC14. I primarily want to talk about some of the exciting new things Tableau announced as features coming down from R&D. I’m also announcing...
