Why Data Analytics & Visualisation

Extracting value from the data can be done in real-time, leading to more timely decision-making.  Hidden patterns can emerge when data sets are blended and combined for analysis. 

In this programme, you will learn the core concepts and techniques in Tableau for analysing and visualising data.  You’ll work with dashboards, carry out various forms of data analysis and present them visually. You don’t need technical background to do this, and the programme does not require programming skills.
