At Tableau, we believe in using the visual to drive your analysis. When you get observable feedback as you analyze, the power of exploration is in your hands. When you build an analysis and learn from it simultaneously, opportunities for investigation present themselves. Tableau’s visual analytics makes asking and answering questions of your data intuitive, even as those questions naturally grow in complexity—so you can continue to ask, “Why?”
Tableau fuels unlimited data exploration by taking advantage of your natural ability to spot visual patterns quickly. It's all thanks to VizQL, our patented technology that translates drag-and-drop actions into data queries. In other words, we build analytics that work the way you think.
We believe that to help everyone see and understand data, we need to provide rich capabilities for users of all levels of technical ability. From simple, go-to metrics to advanced analytic techniques, Tableau provides a flexible front-end for data exploration with the necessary analytical depth for the data scientist. By leveraging sophisticated calculations, R and Python integration, rapid cohort analysis, and predictive capabilities, data scientists can conduct complex, quantitative analyses in Tableau, and share visual results to facilitate better understanding and collaboration with data.Read More

The use of Excel is widespread in the industry. It is a very powerful data analysis tool, and almost all big and small businesses use Excel in their day-to-day functioning. The powerful features Excel has to offer to analyze data
Very simply, Microsoft Access is an information management tool that helps you store information for reference, reporting, and analysis. Microsoft Access helps you analyze large amounts of information, and manage related data more efficiently than Microsoft Excel or other spreadsheet applications.
All of the things people use as arguments against using MS Access turn out to be reasons for others to use it.
It’s super easy to use – hell yes it is. Setting up tables, queries, forms, and reports is a veritable walk in the park. You can import data from spreadsheets, text files, or other more suitable data sources like SQL Server and not be afraid of Janey from Accounts overwriting chunks of the production tables with an ill-advised UPDATE statement in Management Studio.
It’s not big enough, and my database just kept growing – over time you will eventually max out it’s size limits (somewhere around 2GB from personal observation), but for small scale datasets and quick analysis jobs this will give you more than enough space for very little server space overhead, and all you need is MS Access installed on your machine. This should come as standard with most MS Office installs so no fighting with the IT Department to install unwelcome 3rd party software.
It’s not secure enough – well don’t keep business-critical or top-secret secure data on it in a publicly accessible place then. You don’t need a full user access infrastructure to get started, load it up, fire in your data, run your queries or VBA and it’s all there in front of you.Read More
