Embedded Tableau Oscars Dashboard

(This post was originally published on BIHappy Blog)

A few months ago I published my Oscars dashboard (http://bihappyblog.com/2014/03/10/oscars-dashboard/). Recently, I decided to produce a new version of it, leveraging Tableau, and extending it with some additional features possible with some html5 integration. Embedding Tableau in an external web application framework is a great way to leverage Tableau terrific data exploration features like drilling, grouping and filtering with some intuitive, simple to understand and use interface suitable for a user’s portal or an executive audience. This example leverages my Oscars database file and allows exploration of Oscar nominated actors, actresses, directors as well as a free form exploration option for perusing more of the data set. Enjoy..
