IRE members to receive new, free Tableau tool

Here at Tableau we're passionate about data as part of the public conversation. For this reason, Tableau Desktop has been available to IRE members for free. And we’re excited to announce that in addition to Tableau Desktop, IRE members will now have access to our brand-new product – Tableau Prep – designed to help everyone quickly and confidently combine, shape, and clean their data for analysis. 

About Tableau Prep

If you’ve ever analyzed public data, you know the pain of digging into the data only to find that it’s poorly structured, full of inaccuracies or just plain incomplete. You’re stuck fixing the data in Excel or writing complex calculations before you can answer a simple question. Tableau Prep is designed to reduce the struggle of common yet complex tasks — such as joins, unions, pivots and aggregations — with a drag-and-drop visual experience. No scripting required.

Become a master in Tableau Prep with free training videos or instructor-led training. For more information, check out these resources:

1. Tableau Prep product information

2. Support and compatibility

3. Best practices for tidy data using Tableau Prep 

Attending the 2018 IRE Conference in Orlando? We’ll be offering training on Tableau Prep there, too.
