Data Science at the Speed of Thought
Integrate Tableau with R models and functions to explore data and construct dashboards of prepared models that allow viewers to interact with R scripts. Join us to see how you can use Tableau alongside R to speed up your data science projects and get them in front of more eyes, leading to smarter, data-driven business decisions.
