The role played by analytics in a company’s business decision-making is more important than ever before. Increasingly, sales and marketing teams are making serious efforts at leveraging insights from analytical tools in order to give them a competitive edge. The advent of big data solutions such as Hadoop, MongoDB and Jaspersoft has made data analytics a strategic, fundamental component of organizational growth objectives.
Proper data visualization forms the backbone of a well-formulated analytics strategy. Tableau, with over 28000 customer accounts, is at the forefront of addressing one of the biggest challenges in data visualization – making databases and spreadsheets understandable to ordinary people. Its latest version, Tableau 9.0, the innovative approach to effective visualization is at full-on display, and has really been taken to a whole another level while greatly accelerating the speed at which you can gain insights.

Take an example of the map which gives geographical distribution of various languages spoken in Switzerland – German, French, Italian, and Romansch across all the 26 cantons of the country. Based on demographic numbers, Tableau 9.0 neatly details the most major language spoken in a given canton. It’s intelligent enough to indicate the bilingual cantons. So how does this level of detailing help you? Supposing, you were about to plan your next vacation in Switzerland and spoke a little German and didn’t mind Italian but were absolutely terrified by French language, wouldn’t it be great if you could know in advance which places would make you enjoy your vacation most comfortably.
Tableau 9.0 is 3-4 times faster than its previous version. Singular execution upgrades in Tableau 9.0 consolidate to give exceptional general rate increments crosswise over exercise manuals. Storing and union totally kill the need for a few inquiries. Different inquiries faster on concentrates, or process in parallel for speedier burden times.
Below mentioned features help enhance the speed in the new version
