Tableau Desktop is part of the suite of tools from Tableau which enable data to be analysed and published from a variety of sources.

With Tableau Desktop, you get a workbook authoring tool that enables you to connect to and query data from different sources using connections. From the datasets you build, you can create worksheets and Visualizations which can then be shared or published as dashboards.

This course introduces Tableau Desktop concepts, the interface and terminology. You will connect to data, prepare the data and create Visualizations in worksheets to produce dashboards or other outputs.
