SHORT DESCRIPTION

Tableau software helps people communicate data through an innovation called VizQL, a visual query language that converts drag-and-drop actions into data queries, allowing users to quickly find and share insights in their data. With Tableau, “data workers” first connect to data stored in files, cubes, databases, warehouses, Hadoop technologies, and even some cloud sources like Google Analytics. They then interact with the Tableau user interface to simultaneously query the data and view the results in charts, graphs, and maps that can be arranged together on dashboards. (Jones, 2014: 15)

Basically, one has to install a desktop application (Win/Mac) and create a visualization. The result then can be published either on their public server or on your own server (commercial).
