Tableau Review
Helps understand data in seconds with lower cost.


Valuable Features

Included data engine, work interface.

Room for Improvement

Include new graph views in Tableau, increase dual axis - sync of only two axis isn't enough.

Use of Solution

1 year

Deployment Issues

No, but I have no experience in Tableau Server deployment

Stability Issues

Yes, in v8.1 there was a problem with changing bg color of sheets and dashboards (TD shutdown)

Scalability Issues

In v8.1 there was a problem with big Excel files - for ex: if you have an Excel spreadsheet with three sheets and more then 300,000 rows in each one and you want to add it as one datasource linked by one key field - your Tableau Desktop will be very slowly.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service: 3 out of 5Technical Support: 4 out of 5

Previous Solutions

QlikView and Microsoft. Switched because there aren't any cubs, user friendly interface and lower cost.

Initial Setup

Initial setup very easy but I did not setup Tableau Server

Implementation Team

It was in-house

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Only license fee and electricity:)

Other Advice

It's a nice solution, the vendor should listen to users and customers.

Thank you so much for the responses. Quite helpful in various ways. I sense a favourable leaning towards Tableau, will continue on due diligence keeping all the advice in mind too.
