Demo Day: Using R with Tableau

Javier Guillen Posted by Javier Guillen

When it comes to doing statistical analysis on large sets of data, R is an excellent option. Thanks to the dynamic nature of Tableau’s dashboards, using R in Tableau gives you a powerful way to mine data without having to re-create R scripts for every new analytical context you may be interested in looking at.Using_R_with_Tableau.png

Today’s Demo Day video will provide an overview of working in Tableau. You’ll also get a look at how R can be used within Tableau to calculate outliers.

You’ll see how using R can integrate with visuallly rich dashboards that enable users to slice & dice outlier classifications.

In addition to the information above, this video will show you:

  • How to connect Tableau to the R runtime.
  • How to map R output to Tableau calculations
