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
No, but I have no experience in Tableau Server deployment
Yes, in v8.1 there was a problem with changing bg color of sheets and dashboards (TD shutdown)
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

QlikView and Microsoft. Switched because there aren't any cubs, user friendly interface and lower cost.
Initial setup very easy but I did not setup Tableau Server
It was in-house
Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing
Only license fee and electricity:)
It's a nice solution, the vendor should listen to users and customers.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
