Tableau Prep

Tableau Prep empowers more people to get to analysis faster by helping them quickly and confidently combine, shape, and clean their data. A direct and visual experience gives customers a deeper understanding of their data, smart features make data prep simple, and integration with the Tableau analytical workflow allows for faster speed to insight.

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 gives you the freedom to re-order steps and experiment without consequence.

Smart, so you can work faster

Use smart features to fix common data prep challenges. Tableau Prep 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 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 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.
