What is Tableau?

Tableau was founded in 2003 by Chris Stolte, Pat Hanrahan, and Christian Chabot to implement their data visualization technology into business solutions. This project developed into a world-leading analytics platform that visually expresses data by turning drag-and-drop actions into data queries. It’s data analysis and visualization at its friendliest. 

Tableau is powered by a proprietary query language called VizQL, which essentially acts as a translator of SQL queries, effortlessly turning whatever data is returned into a customizable result. Each action you take is translated to a query, and the platform automatically renders a visual representation of the recovered data, ready to be analyzed, shared, or exported. 

VizQL is what one would consider a declarative language. In other words, the user doesn’t have to relay instructions to the system to tell it “how” something is done: they can just tell the system “what” they want and the platform takes care of the rest, like a search engine.

Tableau is, for all intents and purposes, a no-code solution for data visualization but, like any tool, it can shine when it’s handled by an expert. A Tableau developer has a good handle of databases and programming to handle migrations, integrations, and data presentations and increase their depth and sophistication.  

What is Tableau Used For?

With a widespread set of tools, Tableau is an all-in-one platform for data analysis and visualization. Some of its most common uses are:
