Tableau Workshop

Integrated Analytics Workshop

Ruandi van Zyl

Tableau is a self-service analytics and data visualization tool.  This workshop would comprise of an overview of Tableau’s product line, a demo of the interface and a case study will then be presented.  The group (depending on size) might break out into smaller groups to answer the question set by the case study on the data provided.  Delegates will design (wireframe) a dashboard and develop it in Tableau themselves. 


After completing this workshop,  delegates will have a good understanding of what the product can do and will have had their hands on the tool for some practical experience.

Prof Fanie Terblanche

Traditionally, the application of analytics involved two separate toolsets – one for statistical and predictive modelling, and the other for solving optimisation problems. The use of algebraic modelling languages is making it more attainable, however, to provide an integrated environment for doing both. The ease with which optimisation problems can be formulated using algebraic modelling systems has changed the pace at which the industry can develop end-to-end analytics solutions.

In this workshop, delegates will be introduced to three alternative algebraic modelling systems, and practical examples will be used to demonstrate the different features of each. A step by step tutorial will be provided to allow delegates to implement an optimisation formulation using one of these algebraic modelling systems. The only computer requirement to participate in this tutorial is a web browser (preferably Google Chrome).
