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 the 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 the analysis include such operations as
  • filtering to focus on items of interest
  • sorting to rank and prioritize
  • grouping and aggregating to summarize
  • 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.

Topologies in Apache Storm the concept you need to know

There are two main reasons why Apache Storm is so popular. The number one is it can connect to many sources. The number two is scalable. The other advantage is fault tolerant. That means, guaranteed data processing.
The map-reduce jobs process the data analytics in Hadoop. The topology in Storm is the real data processor. The co-ordination between Nimbus and Supervisor carried by Zookeeper What are topologiesThe jobs in Hadoop are similar to topology. The jobs run as per schedule defined.In Storm, the topology runs forever.A topology consists of many worker processes spread across many machines. A topology is a pre-defined design to get end product using your data.A topology comprises of 2 parts. These are Spout and bolts.The Spout is a funnel for topology Two nodes in StormMaster Node: similar to Hadoop job tracker. It runs on a daemon called Nimbus.Worker Node: It runs on a daemon called Supervisor. The Supervisor listens to the work assigned to each machine.Master NodeNimbus is re…

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.

BluePrismBlue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ensu…
