Tableau is a highly intuitive and visually rich business intelligence application that can connect to a variety of cloud and native data sources, including Salesforce.com and Google Analytics. By using a data buddy, you can combine all of these data sources into one dashboard by simply dragging and dropping the data in. Tableau’s user-friendly interface provides even the non-technical user with the ability to quickly analyze this data to instantly create visually rich, powerful and interactive dashboards.

Tableau’s recent release, Tableau 8 has offered users a lot of great updates including report subscriptions, one-step forecasting, JavaScript API and a mobile app. The mobile app is by far one of my favorite features, because it allows you to view all of your reports in real-time. You can also use almost all of the same features you would on your desktop version using the mobile app, including zooming, filtering and highlighting. You can even edit reports in real-time from your mobile app!
