Tableau Review
The way it incorporates user-level data with geographic mapping really helps in building strategy at the top-most level. For huge data sets, it takes a lot of time to load the data.


Valuable Features:

  • The ability to connect to different sources of data like SQL, Excel, etc. makes Tableau a very smart tool for data visualization.
  • The way it incorporates user-level data with geographic mapping really helps in building strategy at the top-most level.
  • Sharing dashboards among the team is extremely hassle free and also the data being up to date makes management extremely happy.

Improvements to My Organization:

All-important, high-level metrics are at the fingertips of top management, which makes decision making less painful and more data oriented.

All employees have access to real-time data, which makes customer management a nuanced affair, because of which there is stark reduction in errors.

Room for Improvement:

  • Better dashboard creation
  • Ease of making reports

Use of Solution:

I have used it for two years.

Deployment Issues:

Once the reports are created, there are no issues at all. The only problem is the speed of loading data. For huge data sets, it takes a lot of time to load data. With Google' Data Studio coming out, they might want to improve this aspect of the tool.

Technical Support:

Service is excellent and their support staff are very quick to answer any queries.

Previous Solutions:

We did not evaluate any other solutions. We only worked with Tableau, as it was industry ready.

Initial Setup:

It is a pretty straightforward setup, as described on their website. If you follow those instructions correctly, there wouldn't be any problem.

Implementation Team:

  • We did it in-house, as it helped us streamline things and rolling out required dashboards faster and more accurately.
  • A team of two with basic tech background is more than enough to start off with.
  • The learning curve is very flat, so within a month, resources can be ready to roll out reports.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

Their price is as per industry standard and any company in analytics business will be comfortable with the pricing plans.

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