Overview

Advanced Tableau – Data Model overview

This Advanced Tableau course provides next-level training for structuring and connecting data in Tableau to build elegant and professional models.

In this course, you’ll combine related data using joins, relationships, and blends to bring data into visuals. We’ll work through a scenario with evolving business requirements. These requirements will need more and more data added to our model as we progress. Each time you do this, you’ll be introduced to new options for joining, relating, and blending data, common problems, and methods for optimizing your data model for performance.

By the end, you’ll have learned to think more carefully about the structure of your data, the types of connections you should use, and the performance options that are best for your data.

  • Build a basic data model using Tableau’s relationship feature
