Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"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."

Comparison Review
Guillermo (Bill) Cabiro
I do use both Tableau and QlikView. Although very different, I really like both solutions. They belong to the new BI generation known as Interactive Visual Analytics. In my opinion, QlikView has a more intuitive interface for regular users or executives that are not technical experts but the development side is a little more complex. Up to version 12 QlikView did not provide drag & drop features. If a user wanted to see something not included in the application the new object had to be created by a power user or developer because Qlikview's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve. On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL allowing the integration of hundreds of different data sources into the same visual app. Another feature that’s extremely useful is Qlik’s proprietary Associative Model that allows the users to visualize data relationships that exist as well as those that do not. Tableau on the other hand is a lot easier to use for developers, analysts or power users who need to connect, manipulate and visualize data rather quickly. While this makes Tableau a better fit for the more analytical crowd, it may not be as appealing or intuitive to the regular or casual business users as QlikView is. Tableau has full pivot, drag & drop and drill down capabilities that are great for developers or power users. They can rotate measures and dimensions and graph them instantly using visualization best practices as suggested by… Read more »

Overview

Data is the most abundant and precious resource in an enterprise. It comes in all forms and is complex to merge, relate and analyze. Data analytics extract meaning from that data for business gain or productivity, often sharing those insights through analytics dashboards or analytics reports.

With organizations generating billions of terabytes of data a year, big data analytics techniques are the only way to understand and uncover value from today’s scale of data.

The best big data analytics tools must be able to process both structured and unstructured data such as text, documents, emails and other data stored in enterprise information management systems. They go further than reporting on historic performance, enabling companies to prescribe better actions through predictive analytics. These data analysis tools are often referred to as advanced analytics solutions, such as OpenText™ Magellan Analytics Suite, and are quickly becoming the preferred choice for enterprise analytics.

Tableau helps people and organizations become more data-driven as the trusted leader in analytics.
