- Data capacity
Where I'm working, we have many reports developed in Microsoft Excel to present results about the business. However, when we need to work a large volume of data, they are developed in Tableau because access to data from Oracle and managing large data volumes is easier than Excel. All the reports that we develop using Tableau are complimented by our directors, as the information is visualized well.
Improvements to My Organization:
When we need to work with a large volume of data, we can create an extraction, validate data easily, and then present it to our users using Tableau Server or Tableau Reader.
Room for Improvement:
I have difficulty working with many filters on the dashboards, and I'd like to see more options in the "Histories" section. QlikView makes better use of the dashboard filters.
Use of Solution:
We've used it for two years.
In some departments we chose to install Tableau Reader, but it's necessary to create a ticket to update the software for each new version. This process is not good as it disrupts our day-to-day functions.
I work with 4GB RAM and rarely I have a problem with it. My OS is 32 bits.
We've had no issues with scalability.
I always take support from Tableau's forums and communities.
Other Solutions Considered:
We also looked at QlikView.
It's a great solution to present data, and our directors love to work with it.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
