It was a great experience attending the 2017 Tableau Visual Analytics Forum in Hongkong last week. There were more than 700 Tableau users joined this event. Here are some highlights to share.
Four sections of the conference
-Visual Analytics and Innovative Thinking
Two interesting case studies shared by TC Gan, APAC Presales Director
Will shared his tracking data with public. Per his data, Tableau can analyze when/where Will was; how many hours he spent in that spot. Interestingly, they even made a bold guess of what he was doing!
The moment you enter a shopping mall and connect to its Wifi, you are tracked! Your set of data will be transferred and generated into a formula automatically by Tableau. They can monitor all the activities while you are in the mall.
