Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The cost of the solution should be improved.Tableau's licensing is pretty straightforward and simple.ROI is very high, but it requires a data preparation/blending tool.Be careful with the Tableau Viewer's licenses, and stay with the right number of users.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.
