Learn Be A Better Analyst Don't Fear the Data

Don’t Fear the Data

This is the talk I gave at the 2016 Tableau Conference in Singapore, for those who couldn’t make it or wanted to share it around. In it, I try to summarise my experience with Tableau throughout my career and how it’s helped me immensely as an analyst. It also aims to help people shift their mindset when using it, as if users still think in spreadsheets then they will not get the most out of the product.

Lastly I talk about how it helps aid in the user experience design parts of an analysts job, whether they realise they are doing it or not when creating dashboards and reports for their target audiences. I hope this is of use to a lot of analysts, as too many of us are hampered by inadequate tools in which to explore and get to grips with the ever-growing amounts of data we have in our businesses.
