This unique 1-day Tableau Server training course is designed as an overview for those who need to quickly learn the basics of administering a standard, out-of-the-box installation of Tableau Server. The course is also appropriate for those considering a deployment of Tableau Server, but who would like to learn more about the product prior to making a final decision. This Tableau training is primarily designed for IT professionals or technically savvy staff who will be responsible for the installation, administration, and maintenance of Tableau Server.
