What is Tableau?

Tableau is a information visualization and dashboard tool.

Tableau Public is a free version of the product that is web-based. Tableau Desktop is a subscription software, available on some ITAP computers (such as in Kran 250 in the Parrish Library of Management & Economics). For more about the difference see this link:  Tableau Desktop vs Tableau Public vs Tableau Reader vs Tableau Server
