In this 11-video course, learners will explore Tableau Desktop, which is data visualization software that allows users to see and understand data at a deeper level. Begin by locating and opening Tableau Desktop in a Windows 10 work environment, and once done, explore the Tableau Desktop interface. This leads into examining the Tableau Data Source Page, which is one of the most fundamental and important parts of Tableau. Discover how to connect to a desktop source and use single and multiple tables to extract data into Tableau Data Engine; how to connect to a Microsoft SQL Server database, select tables, and directly connect to the data to enable working with live data; and how to configure and use Extract Mode with a Microsoft SQL Server database connection. Next, examine how to extract data with a custom SQL query; use Google Analytics and Tableau to analyze your web data; work with OData source to consume data in Tableau; and demonstrate and implement inner, left, and right joins with Tableau. Conclude the course by observing how to use cross-database and more advanced joins.
