Unique functionality in Tableau: Tableau Software was founded on the idea that analysis and visualization should not be isolated activities but must be synergistically integrated into a visual analysis process. Visual analysis means specifically:
Data Exploration. Visual analysis is designed to support analytical reasoning. The goal of visual analysis is to answer important questions using data and facts. In order to support analysis, it is not enough to only access and report on the data. Analysis requires computational support throughout the process. Typical steps in analysis include such operations as (1) filtering to focus on items of interest, (2) sorting to rank and prioritize, (3) grouping and aggregating to summarize, and (4) creating on-the-fly calculations to express numbers in useful ways. A visual analysis application exposes these exploratory operations to ordinary people through easy-to-use interfaces.

Data Visualization. Visual analysis means presenting information in ways that support visual thinking. Data is displayed using the best practices of information visualization. The right presentation makes it easy to organize and understand the information. For example, critical information may be quickly found, and features, trends, and outliers may be easily recognized. One powerful way to evaluate any analysis tool is to test its effectiveness in answering specific questions. At the most fundamental level, does the tool have the analytical power needed to answer the question? At another level, how long does it take to answer the question? A successful visual analysis application unites data exploration and data visualization in an easy-to-use application that anyone can use.
