Tableau is a data visualization package. In this video, learn how to download or connect to Tableau.
- [Instructor] Because you're watching movies, and, of course, on Tableau, I assume that you are interested in acquiring the software if you don't already own it. In this movie I will describe where to find the program online and also describe the different versions of Tableau that are available to you. The Tableau software website is the company's name and that is www.tableau. T-A-B-L-E-A-U .com. If you want to view the products that are available, you can hover your mouse pointer over the Products link. And there you see Tableau Desktop, which is the version that we're going to use. Tableau Prep is used for data preparation, so import and processing. Tableau Server allows you to set up your own Tableau implementation, and Tableau Online is a web hosted cloud-based version of Tableau Server. And there are other elements as well. If you want to download Tableau, you go to the Support link. Just hover your mouse pointer over it, and then we're using Tableau Desktop, so I'll click Desktop Support. On the Tableau Desktop Support page you can scroll down and over on the right you see you have a Quick Links area. So I will click Download Tableau Desktop. Here are all the versions that are available. So we have Desktop 2020.1. Also, below that we have Server, which hasn't released a 2020 yet, and so on. If you want to download Tableau 2020.1, go ahead and click the link. And then below that, there is a download link that will download the file. Once you're done, you can install it and apply licenses that you have. You can also get a 30-day trial. There's one other option of Tableau that I want to let you know about, and that is the public option. So if I go to the address bar, or my web browser, and type public.tableau.com, there we go. Then you go to the Tableau Public site. Tableau Public is free for you to use, but all the data that you put on the site is free. So do not use this for business or other sensitive applications. However, if you have a blog or other public site, and you don't mind having your visualizations and your data become public, then Tableau Public is a terrific tool.
