Before Tableau Prep our team would spend hours and hours making sure that our data sources were clean and organized, just to make sure that our analysis was accurate and effective.

We’ve been able to save hours of work with Tableau Prep, completely reinventing the way we look at our data, and dramatically shortening the time between data collection and actionable insights.

Tableau Prep Scaling your prepped data just got easier
Tableau Prep changes the traditional way of data preparation in organizations.
Self-service data preparation
Tableau Prep changes the way traditional data prep is performed in an organization. By providing a visual and direct way to combine, shape and clean data, Tableau Prep makes it easier for analysts and business users to start their analysis, faster. Tableau Prep is comprised of two products: Tableau Prep Builder for building your data flows, and Tableau Prep Conductor for scheduling, monitoring and managing flows across the organization.

Tableau Prep Builder

Combine, shape, and clean your data for analysis

A complete picture of your data
Three coordinated views let you see row-level data, profiles of each column, and your entire data preparation process. Pick which view to interact with based on the task at hand.
Immediate results
If you want to edit a value, you select and directly edit. Change your join type, and see the result right away. With each action, you instantly see your data change, even on millions of rows of data. Tableau Prep Builder gives you the freedom to re-order steps and experiment without consequence.
Work smarter, work faster
Use smart features to fix common data prep challenges. Tableau Prep Builder employs fuzzy clustering to turn repetitive tasks, like grouping by pronunciation, into one click operations.
Connect to more data
Connect to data on premises or in the cloud, whether it’s a database or a spreadsheet. Access, combine and clean disparate data without writing code. Tableau Prep Builder intelligently pushes operations down to the database when possible, letting you take advantage of existing database investments for fast flow execution performance.
Stay in the flow
Stay in the flow of your analysis. It’s easy to open your output with Tableau Desktop or share it with others via Tableau Server or Tableau Online. Easy sharing reduces friction and helps you bridge the gap between data preparation and analytics, for better business results.

Tableau Prep Conductor

Schedule, monitor and administer your data flows

Share and run flows on your server
With Tableau Prep Conductor, you can easily publish and run flows in your server environment. Share your data sources securely using Tableau Server or Tableau Online. Create an environment where everyone in your organization can work with prepped and up-to-date data.
Schedule your flows
Schedule your flows to run when you need them to - day or night. Automate your data prep processes so there's always fresh data that's prepped and ready for analysis.
Monitor flows across your server
Monitor flows with the same tools available on Tableau Server today. Use the Status page, Admin Views and run histories to see the health of flows across the entire server so you can address any issues quickly. Always know if your flows are healthy with proactive alerts.
