Tableau Server Training: Essentials

ExistBI is a Tableau Partner

Course Description

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.

Many of the concepts are covered from the perspective of deployments that are not overly large or complex. Those interested in advanced topics or detailed system integration of Tableau Server should consider the Tableau Server Comprehensive course instead. This course will include a workbook containing key concepts on each topic covered and hands-on activities to reinforce the skills and knowledge attained.
