 (2 days)
Moving from data visualization into deeper, more advanced analytics? This course will intensify data skills for data viz-savvy users who want to move into analytics and data science in order to enhance their businesses by harnessing the analytical power of R and the stunning visualization capabilities of Tableau.

Together, Tableau and R offer accessible analytics by allowing a combination of easy-to-use data visualization along with industry-standard, robust statistical computation. Readers will come across a wide range of machine learning algorithms and learn how
descriptive, prescriptive, predictive, and visually appealing analytical solutions can be designed with R and Tableau.

In order to maximize learning, hands-on examples will ease the transition from being a data-savvy user to a data analyst using sound statistical tools to perform advanced analytics.

This class is for Tableau users who are comfortable with the product and are ready to transition to from being a data-savvy user to being a data analyst using sound statistical tools to perform advanced analytics.

Before attending this course, students should have taken or be familiar with the contents presented in Tableau Desktop Level 1: Introduction and the Tableau Desktop 2: Intermediate courses.
