Tableau has a lot of different products in their range, and it can be hard to make sense of them all, here is our quick and handy guide to the products offered by Tableau.
Makes it easy to connect to your data and create your own visualisations. A range of different data sources can be connected to – a list that can be found here
A free service that lets anyone publish interactive data visualisations to the web. Visualisations that have been published to Tableau Public (“vizzes”) can be embedded into web pages and blogs, they can be shared via social media or email, and they can be made available for download to other users.
A free desktop application that you can use to open, view and interact with visualisations that have already been created in the Desktop tool.
A tool for sharing visualisations, but instead of sending files, you publish your visualisation to Server. Anyone with permissions can view, interact and even edit in their browser
Just like Tableau Server, but it's hosted by Tableau in the cloud. No hardware, no setup, no maintenance.
