Tableau is always good at improving, but I typically get so busy with utilizing what is there, I have not had any needs yet for improvement.
More recently in the past few months.
No deployment issues.
No stability issues.
No scalability issues.
I have not had to use customer service for Tableau. I just go online and google my needs typically.Technical Support:
I have not had to use technical support for Tableau yet. As with customer service, I just go online and google my needs typically.
I really like the user-friendly (usability, user experience) layout of Tableau. The visual layout for me is very appealing.
It is really straightforward, but I can see if someone has issues with the download and setup, you may want to contact technical support.
Implementation was in-house on my own. It was easy.
I have not measured this, but the time saved by allowing the tool to make the necessary changes instead of going back to the spreadsheet is definitely worth my time and the company's money.
Not sure about this, except that Tableau can be costly (but this can be indefinable, such as user experience vs. cheaper etc.)
Again, this was more based on learning curve and user experience for me. I've worked with MicroStrategy and BusinessObjects (learning curve is higher for me for these, then Tableau). Big thing here is the user experience for less savvy or non-technical people (from my experience). I'm sure MSTR and BO are good tools, just not my preference.
As I had mentioned above in regards to improvements, I believe every tool or application or databases for that matter can always use improvement. That's why we work in the field of data and/or IT, it's ever changing and improving, so we need to change and improve as well. Keep abreast of new things in the market and the improvements of the tools or apps you use on a daily basis. The last thing we want in our industry is to become complacent. Then again, we should never become complacent in any facets of our lives.
