Interactive Data Visualization with Tableau and RShiny

Short Overview
In the information era, Data Visualization is a prominent tool as it can summarize the findings of the research, enhance the presentation of results, and even reveal hidden relationships and structures in the data. Tableau and RShiny are visualization tools that enable the dynamic management and presentation of data and the creation of interactive and flexible charts. The main advantage of the interactive charts is that the user can intervene, by changing the parameters and/or selecting features of the chart, and adjust them as they like, in order to get the exact information they need. Visualization tools are very popular across a wide range of workplaces. Specifically, they are applicable in every field where data are used, such as statistics, marketing, financial sciences, logistics, etc.
Program Value

Additionally, highlighting common mistakes will help him implement best practices.
