Tableau Review
We used to have to create a SSIS package, then create an SSRS report, and meet with the users a few times before coming up with the final visualization product.


Valuable Features

The ease and speed of creating visualizations and interfaces with any database are this product’s most valuable features.

Improvements to My Organization

It is able to provide answers within hours instead of days. Typically, we would have to create a SSIS package to connect to that database, then create a SSRS report and meet with the users a few times before coming up with the final visualization product. With Tableau, we can create all of these in one session.

Room for Improvement

It would be great if the licensing cost per user was cheaper.

Use of Solution

I have been using it for one year.

Deployment Issues

We currently cannot use version 9 because we have to wait for our Tableau Server to be upgraded to version 9 first.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is good.

Previous Solutions

We were previously using SSR for reports and SSIS for retrieving the data.

Initial Setup

Installing Tableau Desktop was easy.

Implementation Team

We worked with the Tableau team.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

I would recommend lowering the licensing cost per user.

Other Advice

I would recommend that everyone use this product.

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