What is most valuable?
Included data engine, work interface.
What needs improvement?
Include new graph views in Tableau, increase dual axis - sync of only two axis isn't enough.
For how long have I used the solution?
What was my experience with deployment of the solution?
No, but I have no experience in Tableau Server deployment
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
Yes, in v8.1 there was a problem with changing bg color of sheets and dashboards (TD shutdown)
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
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.
How are customer service and technical support?
Customer Service: 3 out of 5Technical Support: 4 out of 5
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
QlikView and Microsoft. Switched because there aren't any cubs, user friendly interface and lower cost.
How was the initial setup?
Initial setup very easy but I did not setup Tableau Server
What about the implementation team?
It was in-house
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
Only license fee and electricity:)
What other advice do I have?
It's a nice solution, the vendor should listen to users and customers.
