We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The system is quite flexible. Based on our requirements, we create different cubes that can help us to do complete planning."
"I work for clients. That is my business model. Business people really like to see Tableau. They love Tableau because it is very user-friendly. The platform provides an easy to use interface, which is what most people like about it."
"One of the most valuable features is that the solution allows users to build interactive dashboards. This allows the end user to modify the criteria or the filtering if need be. As far as for my personal use as a QA Engineer, I really value how extensive their API document support has been."
"Scheduled extract and the multiple connectors are fantastic!"
"It has been the best tool to work with from a self-service point of view."
"The most valuable features are data discovery and fine visualizations."
"This solution has transformed us from an Excel reporting environment to one of visual exploration."
"Good data flow and management."
"The most valuable feature is the interface, which is user-friendly and intuitive."
"Being an analytical solution, it should have more visualization options like graphs. When we are putting it, it should have more options. The UI can be made more modernized based on today's market. Sometimes, when we are doing heavy reports or dashboarding, there is a bit of a performance issue because it is pulling up a huge amount of data. That can be improvised by buffer memory and getting some buffer memory feature into it. It is a bit complex because it is a CPM solution. It helps you to get the information based on the different tools that we are using, which is a bit of a complex thing. It is not as easy as Microsoft Power BI. It is also not that easy as an implementation piece. It takes time to convert the business requirement into the proper solutions in the tool, which is time-consuming. It took about eight months to do the complete implementation. We got some training from the partner and the Jedox team, which helped us later on in pulling things forward, but too much learning is required, and too many possibilities are there."
"From the developer perspective, the data connection handling the target data set is what most needs to be improved."
"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."
"The performance could be better."
"Licensing and pricing options could be made better so that more users would be able to use it."
"The SQL programming functionality needs to be improved."
"I would like Tableau to handle geospatial data better in terms of multiple layers and shapefiles."
"Requires a lot of user training."
"The charts in Tableau are quite limited."
"If you are using SAP, then you will have to take an SAP Connector license. The license across the tool is paying for the people who are using it as an admin or as a normal user. They can work out those costs in a manner that can help. This can also be a point of improvement where they can work out the costing, and the developers have a specific licensing cost. The normal users, who are going to do probably data entry or just going to view the dashboard, can have a separate license cost."
"The initial cost that is set according to CPU cores is expensive."
"Be careful with the Tableau Viewer's licenses, and stay with the right number of users."
"The company chose to purchase a creator license for me, which was $70. With that license, you can also be an administrator. We also have 20-25 extra licenses and they cost around $20-$35 each. Those are for normal users who will be viewing the dashboards. Those are monthly charges."
"Tableau's licensing is pretty straightforward and simple."
"ROI is very high, but it requires a data preparation/blending tool."
"The cost of the solution should be improved."
"It is reasonable and cheap as compared to other major tools. It has a good price, and people go for it because of its pricing."
"Pricing is not bad. It's competitive."
