Tableau Desktop

Tableau is a powerful analytics platform that can be used to provide interactive, visual analysis of even the most complex sets of data. 

If you are interested in exploring what the world of data analytics can offer to your department, downloading a trial copy of Tableau is a great place to start. Due to compatibility requirements with AggieDash, please make sure to download Tableau's trial version that is current with our UCD servers. To learn what version we are currently on visit our AggieDash section. Tableau's 14-day trial period will give enough time to familiarize your data analytics team with Tableau and decide on a path forward. More information on licensing

Training & Resources
