Data

With 2012 behind us, we charge full-speed ahead into the new era of Visual Analytics and Big Data. First, let me define these terms and discuss them briefly, then I'll break down how to put together your Business Intelligence (BI) ecosystem and organization structure going...

I'm enjoying the fire here in Telluride, Colorado and thought I'd put up a fun blog post while nursing my sore arms. I had the idea for this a few weeks back while working with a great new client in Columbus, Ohio and have finally...

Last week in Houston a student from another Tableau class submitted a question about how to properly create date calculations. For users across the experience spectrum, date calculations can be confusing and frustrating. Often students are intimidated by all of the available functions such as...

A common question I've received from new Vertica users is, "How do I enter newlines into a string literal, or use other backslash sequences like 't'?" This is especially common from users transitioning from systems like MySQL that do not use SQL standard-conforming string literals,...

Social Media data is one of the fastest growth areas in the BI world. The dashboard below shows one of the possible ways you could use Facebook data. This dashboard focuses on the demographic, who, where, how many and what they think. The data for this...

In one of most recent projects I was asked to show a running sum of a measure over all of time. However they only wanted to see a particular window in time of this running sum that was calculated since the start of time.   This was...

Back with another blog post fast on the heels of #TCC2012! Now that we’ve seen Christian’s and Chris’ amazing introduction to Tableau 8 in the TCC Keynote, here are some of the Tableau 8 elements the team and I are looking forward to. Overall, this looks...

I'm back to the blog after a long hiatus and a trip just about around the world. I left work in San Francisco, flew to Raleigh-Durham to get married, honeymooned in London and Thailand, and have just wrapped up back to back great weeks at...

The Tableau 8 Beta was released to conference attendees last week, the beta program gets the software out to real world content producers and gives Tableau feedback on any bugs or last minute feature requests. Tableau do a great job with their releases, as each...

I’ve used several tools for extracting data from Google Analytics (GA) in the past so I was particularly excited to find out about the new connector in Tableau V8 straight in to GA.  Once you click Google Analytics from the list of data sources, you...

I am often asked in my classes when a user would need to use custom geocoding. In Tableau, custom geocoding is a little-known feature that is often underused. In my post today I'm going to go over why you would want to use custom geocoding,...

Parameters in Tableau Software are one of the more interesting and valuable aspects of the tool (when they work). As with most things, what you want to accomplish (with limited resources) can force some valuable insight, not to mention innovation. So, here’s the question: Can I...

One of the requests we get quite often is can you set Tableau to have interchangeable charts on a dashboard so that when the user can select which chart to show in a particular place on a dashboard. Whilst not out of the box this...

There has been a conversation floating around on how to successfully navigate around different sheets of a workbook. On the face of it there doesn't appear to be an obvious way of doing this in Tableau (perhaps Tableau 8.0 will address this!!). However it is possible...

So you didn’t get an email from Microsoft welcoming you into the MVP program yesterday, and now you’re wondering, “What happens next? What does all this mean?”  First off, you’re not alone.  I didn’t get that email either. Let’s step back a moment and think about what...

After working in Seattle with the wonderful folks at Tableau for the last week I was reminded of the incredible significance of Tableau Server. I have found that we often look at Tableau Server as a self –service tool. We see it as a tool...
