In order to stay at the forefront of an ever evolving, data-driven industry, we must be able to absorb great amounts of metadata in an easily understood way. The capability to spot, analyze, and (most importantly) understand specific trends in a given area is a skill that will set you apart. As a very customizable visual analytic program, Tableau gives the average user the ability to make sense of vast amounts of data in a relatively short time frame. From this single program, you can create presentation quality maps, charts, plots, and forecasts for your team’s use. In this session we will explore the vast capabilities of Tableau and how it can directly impact your position and organization. This program is extremely flexible and can be utilized anywhere from the smallest private equity backed groups to the largest asset teams within a public E&P.
