We are using Tableau Desktop to:
- Explore data as part of the initial analytics step once data is loaded, to guess at fruitful paths to do the "numbers stuff"
- Share our progress internally and get feedback (vs. displaying endless tables)
- Create fairly complex dashboards for the client
The project is large (several dozen people), with a large client, and focused on the detection of fraud, waste, abuse, and other unusual behavior in healthcare data.
