Use of Solution

I have used it for 3+ years.

Deployment Issues

I have not encountered any deployment, stability or scalability issues. I recommend filtering data at the source itself instead of bringing data into the tool and then applying filters.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is excellent. I hope they continue doing the same.

Previous Solutions

We previously used another solution. We switched to Tableau because, in my opinion, it has some of the best features available. It will take five years for other tools to catch up to where Tableau is right now.

Initial Setup

Initial setup complexity was due to the organization's data structure, but it had nothing to do with the tool.

Implementation Team

Implementation was in-house; we read through the guide.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It is expensive but worth it. I would prefer a lower license cost or an increase in the allowed # of users per license.

Other Advice

Buy it, implement it and stick with it for a sure and quick ROI.

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