Cons
Their customer support team is slow to respond and not extremely confident.The upload feature exists, but isn't terribly useful.Being able to drill down when using OfficeConnect needs work.Users continue to become more advanced and are looking for more advanced solutions.We tried Discovery and OfficeConnect at one point and found them too cumbersome, at the time.Discovery (the data visualization module): Needs to catch up with BI leaders, such as MS and Tableau. E.g., sorting by amounts in column charts and page slicers to control all visuals.Better user interface (UI).

​Conditional formatting could be an interesting feature to provide to final users.The data preparation/blending options are very basic. They could be improved.Tableau is a company that does not respect partners.Licensing and pricing options could be made better so that more users would be able to use it.The performance could be better.Improvements can be made in template support. The workbook file structure is really hard to version control. If there was some sort of version control support offered particularly for workbooks, that would help big time.From the developer perspective, the data connection handling the target data set is what most needs to be improved.I would like to be able to set the parameters in a more specific manner.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Ensure that you have the proper pricing plan in place.Prior to purchasing licenses, make sure you understand which users will only need planning and which users will need both planning and OfficeConnect.Everything is negotiable, but this solution is low cost compared to others.Licensing seems to be worth the cost considering the efficiency Adaptive brings.

Tableau's licensing is pretty straightforward and simple.ROI is very high, but it requires a data preparation/blending tool.The initial cost that is set according to CPU cores is expensive.We always consider pricing when considering a new solution. We are a non-profit and price is a huge concern.Tableau is an expensive solution, though it comes with its advantages.The price could be higher for the quality of software, so they revised the pricing in this version, and I agree with the price for top version. The top version costs about $70 per month, and the price is cheap for the quality.I like the payment model. For the people who need to create, they buy their licenses. Everyone else can use the free Tableau Viewer. This is much better than some of the competitor products, which require full licences for everything.The cost is high.
