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.

Customer Service and 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.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

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.
