Analyse data with natural language

March 23rd, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Tableau Software has announced the general availability of Ask Data, which use natural language processing to enable people to ask data questions in plain language and get a visual response right in Tableau. This capability makes it easier for anyone, regardless of skill set, to engage with data and produce analytical insights they can share with others. The feature is available at no extra charge as part of the newest release, Tableau 2019.1. It is also available at no additional cost as part of Tableau Server and Online. Ask Data works with the software’s full range of supported data sources (both live and extract) allowing connection to any data source without having to move the data or train the algorithm. With no setup required, it integrates with Tableau Server’s existing security and governance capabilities, which makes it ready to use. The company also released new mobile capabilities and a completely redesigned mobile app for both iOS and Android. The latest release further includes a Google Ads connector, which will help marketers analyse their website data more easily and blend it with other data sources across their organisation. This connector adds to the more than 65 native connectors available, including Salesforce, Amazon Redshift, Snowflake and SAP Hana.
