I do apologise for asking a very beginners question. I started reading about tableau this morning and got very excited abt the features. I just want to get a broad guidelines in terms of if it’s possible to do what I want to do with tableau.
Helicopter view of what I am trying to achieve.
1) Recieve Json events over http - web connector
2) Run Analytics based on data Received including any previous data received - where it will happen server or desktop?
3) Use the analytics decision to execute action over http - how the analytics result can be used to trigger custom
4) save all the events and board for the event as in underlying data and analytics run - how to save the data and analytics programmatically?
Bit of background, I am developer and have built the engine for Etl and analytics. Thought of using Tableau for visualisations. At this point I realised I can use Tableau as a engine itself for analytics. Experts advice greatly appreciated .
I suggest reviewing the online training options available at http://www.tableau.com/learn and the hundreds of videos available on YouTube for our Tableau channel - Tableau Software - YouTube including videos from most of the sessions at the recent Tableau Conference held last week.
