Tableau Vs Power BI … which one do you choose?

0

In the visualization space , we are work to explain the data using graphs and charts. These visuals should either induce a statement of facts or induce an explanation . We want to answer questions like

  1. Where do most of my customers come from ? Are we successful in some geographies ?
  2. What is the average salary I pay for similar work and skills across SBUs ? Should I concentrate work in some of these ?
  3. What is the average return of investment across products ?

…and many more. Infact, visualizations often trigger a next level of deep-dive.

Two competing softwares in the market for Visualisations are Tableau and Power BI (Microsoft) . Lets take a look at both of these and decide which one we like better ..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A company wants to see some visuals to describe the distribution of employees in their technology department and their average salaries across the different locations. Is it true that people with the same skill sets get paid differently depending on location of work ?

Distribution of employees:-

  • The countries with employees in technology department are in Canada, France , Germany, Mexico and USA
