One product I liked using to do data visualization and analytics is Tableau. It's easy to use and can work with most of the datasources that I have in my environment. I could've utilized another tool like MicroStrategy, SAP Lumira or BusinessObjects but because I need a quick turnaround for the client, I decided to used Tableau.
In this video, I used Tableau Desktop so show a simple side-by-side of Budget vs Actual Sales. I could've added other steps but since it's my introductory video I wanted to make it simple.
