Hi everyone, this is Ben with bensullins. com, and welcome to my course, What's New in Tableau 10. I've been helping companies derive insights from their vast amounts of data since the late 90s, and today, the tools available are making this better and easier than ever before. Tableau software for data analytics has completely disrupted this industry over the past 5 or 6 years, and is now helping more companies than ever see and understand their data. That's why I'm so excited to guide you through all the new features in their latest version, Tableau 10. In this course, we're going to learn how to pull in data from cloud sources, like Google Sheets and QuickBooks Online, how to develop advanced clustering models of your data, how to design engaging, mobile-friendly dashboards that will work on any device, and how to share your insights on Tableau Server. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the foundational knowledge of Tableau 10 that will help you as you move forward to becoming a true data Jedi. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn what's new in Tableau 10 in this course at Pluralsight.

Preparing Your Data
Hi everyone, this is Ben with bensullins. com and welcome to this module, Preparing Your Data. First what we're going to do is take a look at how in Tableau 10 you can connect to data living in Google Sheets. Then we'll take that data we connected to and join it to another local file, using this new method of cross-database joins. We'll explore connecting the QuickBooks Online directly from Tableau, and I chose to highlight this one specifically because it is the most used small business accounting software here in the U. S. Next I'll show you how to combine multiple queries or datasets using what's known as a union query. This features was actually released in version 9. 3, but it's still relatively new so I wanted to cover it here as well. And lastly, I'll give you some links where you can go dig deeper, including a place to find a full list of new data connection options in Tableau 10. Let's get started.
