Tableau Takeover

Tableau Days

August 2-3 – San Antonio and Austin, Texas

We kicked off August with two back-to-back Tableau events in the Lone Star state. For Tableau Days, it’s all about Tableau best practices and learning how people in the Public Sector utilize data visualization tools. Tableau Sales Consultant, Anthony Young, analyzed Texas’ Government IT spending trends and InterWorks veteran, Dan Murray, closed out the day with a talk on driving user adoption with Tableau.

Driving User Adoption with Tableau

August 22 – Washington, D.C.

This DC event was a live demonstration and discussion on all things BI. Attendees were able to learn from other companies and their history with Tableau. This is an ongoing event series where people are able to have their questions answered directly from those in the data community who are familiar with Tableau. Whether you're a veteran Tableau user who has been through the data journey or if you're just starting out, these workshops can help you along your way.

August 24 – London, U.K.

Who doesn’t love free stuff, especially when it comes to Tableau? With these free hands-on workshops, it’s our hope people and organizations learn how easy the functionality of the software is. After attending one of these sessions, you’ll be able to build a dashboard on your own in no time!
