Are you looking for a way to easily provide your students with a marketable Data Analytics skillset?  Many of us already use Microsoft Excel and/or Microsoft Access in our Accounting and Business courses to organize, sort and analyze data.  We know that Excel and Access work great for smaller amounts of data, but Tableau can analyze larger amounts of data very quickly.  In addition, Tableau is easy to use and it can incorporate visual analytics into your curriculum.  Tableau allows a user to keep asking questions of the data until they find the root cause of an issue.  Furthermore, Tableau has the ability to display a bigger picture of the data by creating powerful interactive dashboards.  An advantage of using Tableau is that we have the ability to make better decisions by quickly finding trends and identifying opportunities for improvement.
