About The Information Lab

The Information Lab are an IT services company dedicated to helping people make sense of their data using the Tableau and Alteryx software suites.

The firm is involved in all aspects of this process, from provision of an initial licence to helping customers roll out the technology across their entire organisation. Their onsite courses cover all the expected Tableau and Alteryx functionality, and also include a healthy dose of theory about best practice in data visualisation.

The Information Lab also run a Data School, which opened in June 2015 to train up a new generation of data analysts. They take applications from prospective students looking to embark on a career in data throughout the year, with six new cohorts starting each year.

The company is based in London, but also has offices in Ireland, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. Their overall aim is to provide companies with the training they need to ensure their licence investment translates into success for their organisations.
