Organizations deploy Tableau products in a broad range of use cases such as increasing sales, streamlining operations, improving customer service, managing investments, assessing quality and safety, studying and treating diseases, completing academic research, addressing environmental problems, and improving education.Tableau's products are flexible and powerful enough to help a single user from a simple spreadsheet, or to enable thousands of users across an enterprise to execute complex queries against massive databases.
