With every release, Tableau proves that it takes user suggestions into account when developing new features. Tableau has always tried to keep customers convenience and flexibility as their matters of concern. Tableau’s latest version 2019.3 has been included with exciting new features like Tableau Catalog, Explain Data and Tableau Server Management Add-on. Let us have a look at what these new features are:
What could be better than a feature that could provide better visibility and better data management at the same time, and also ensure that the right data is always used for analysis. This is possible with the new feature -Tableau Catalog.
This feature provides a complete picture of the data and how each data is connected.
Another use of Tableau Catalog is linear and impact analysis. This not only shows which assets will change but also who will be affected by it, which makes work easier for many and avoids wastage of time.
Tableau 2019.3 is up with a new Al-driven feature called the “Explain Data”, which helps people go from the “what” of the data to the “how” of it. With explain data, we can get an explanation for each unexpected value in the data by just a single click. On selecting the desired data point, the ‘explain data’(lightbulb) icon appears.
For each value there might be a number of explanations. Each of these explanations are checked and only the most likely ones are provided as visualizations.
Now these visualizations can be used for further explorations.
