August 12, 2014 -- In the studio today is David Rubal, Public Sector Pre-Sales Consulting Manager with Tableau Software.

Tableau makes it easy for people to rapidly transform data into smart business analytics.

Their self-service analytics tool helps federal agencies perform fast, ad hoc analysis on data of any size and format without special coding or scripting.

This solves a key problem federal information professionals have - they are bombarded with massive data sets and are striving to get a handle on what that "big data" means.

During the interview, Rubal discusses big data in government and how Tableau Software helps Federal agencies see and understand data through native connectors to 40 spreadsheet, data warehouse, cube, database and big data sources.

Not just big data, but garden variety data as well.

Rubal explains how to use Tableau with traditional data sources to create interactive financial, operational and mission-critical visualizations, views and dashboards.

For more face-to-face information, Tableau is sponsoring their first Government Executive Forum in DC in November.
