Tableau is one of the leading business intelligence tools used to derive quality insights. With the remarkable growth of data that customers are experiencing, the demand to analyze and interact with data is the need of the hour. This is where Tableau’s range of products help in visually interacting with data to make critical decisions.

Some of the noteworthy offerings available in Tableau 2018.1 are:
