"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."

Cons
"The solution is about to cease to exist, so it doesn't really matter if they add anything to it. It's at end-of-life."

More Oracle Hyperion Cons »

"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."

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 »
