Tableau Review
The drag-and-drop interface and its flexibility are the product's most valuable features.

Valuable Features:

The drag-and-drop interface and its flexibility are the product's most valuable features.

Improvements to My Organization:

It requires only a one-time effort to design worksheets and dashboards. New data can be appended or a whole new set in the same data structure can be loaded to existing working files without much effort to obtain the same results.

Room for Improvement:

I would like to see more Excel-like functionalities, perhaps, e.g. the countifs function. It is quite a hassle to code this using query language.

Use of Solution:

I have used Tableau for around one year.

Deployment Issues:

Hassle-free deployment for desktop version.

Stability Issues:

Initial versions crashed when large data sets were loaded. Subsequent releases were more stable.

Technical Support:

Technical support is excellent. Tableau consultants were eager to help.

Previous Solutions:

We chose Tableau for its simplicity and ease of use.

Initial Setup:

For the desktop version, initial setup was straightforward.

Implementation Team:

The straightforward installation can be performed in-house.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

A non-complicated licensing scheme exists for the desktop version. Buy, activate and use. Licensing was easily manageable with a license key that could be activated or deactivated on a system as required.

Other Advice:

Try it out to see if it suits your organisational needs. To make the product work as desired, know how it works and implement workaround solutions if that is not readily available.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
