We are thrilled. We have been waiting for days to gauge how some of the Tableau 10 new features will synchronise with our conventional business interface for Hadoop. We have culled out some of the best features of Tableau 10, which had made us zealous and left us buzzing. And here they are ..

An extremely visually appealing new interface

Connect the little dots to get a bigger picture. The new interface pays enough attention to minute details making the entire visualization environment pleasant and engaging.

 

For example: When you name a worksheet tab, the same name pops up as an inline title, blending seamlessly with the viz – now isn’t that great!

Ten on ten to Tableau’s clustering feature

Owing to Tableau’s outstanding analytics capabilities, Tableau 10’s clustering feature is the next best thing. The feature focuses on the elements of a pool of data values and visually highlights an inconspicuous number of clusters, which is found in the data. This makes it easier for an analyst to run his eyes through the data sets they need to investigate.
