Powerful Modeling for Complex Data
Tableau’s new data modeling capabilities make it even easier to analyze data across multiple tables at different levels of detail. With a simple and visual drag-and-drop experience, relationships between tables can be created that automatically create accurate aggregations. This eliminates complex coding and reduces the risk of inaccuracies encountered with traditional database joins. For example, an organization can better plan for expected product return rates in a certain region by relating a table of sales orders with a table of historical returns, through a common zip code ID field. Relationships also make queries more efficient and performant and data sources easier to maintain. To make it easy for anyone to get started analyzing their data, Tableau’s new modern data model will automatically aggregate at the appropriate level of detail for the customer’s analysis.
