Tableau offers three main products that analyze big data: Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server, and Tableau Online. Tableau Desktop is designed to allow anyone to analyze and understand big data intuitively. The software is easy to use because it allows users to create interactive dashboards and drag-and-drop features to develop data visualizations. Even though the software is dealing with big data, it is still designed to be faster than other big data solutions. For businesses, Tableau offers Tableau Server, a browser-based analytics application that provides all of the big data advantages of Tableau Desktop. This version of the software is specifically designed to allow businesspeople to quickly find and organize data. Finally, Tableau Online acts as the hosted version of Tableau Server. This option provides maximum security so that businesses can confidently share data.
eBay, a leading E-commerce site, is one company that relies on Tableau’s data analytics platform to uncover business insights. eBay generates over five terabytes of data a day, and needed a way to easily explore and visualize these sets in-house. After implementing Tableau, they’ve been able to gain deeper insight into customer habits, and have now licensed the software for every one of their employees.
