Installing Tableau Desktop

Tableau is a leading business intelligence software.  Its popularity has grown as a result of its ease of use, awesome visualizations, ability to connect easily to many data sources, its ability to make use of Big Data and Cloud sources, and many other traditional and cutting-edge features.

In this post, I will guide you through the installation of Tableau Desktop 9.  It’s pretty simple.

Go to http://www.tableau.com/ and click Products, or go directly to http://www.tableau.com/products.
