It's the ease of use.

It needs a little bit more advanced modeling. I would like to see functionality like Cognos has in the Framework Manager.Bursting email is needed to deliver the reports to many people in their inboxes and this functionality is not provided by Tableau.It needs more ETL capabilities, to be able to address the end-to-end BI need.The ability to use it on MAC machines. As far as I know, this is not possible.​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.If they could add global filters in the stories, more chart types, and default colours, it would help.

The cost is high.Deployment of dashboards to viewers and unit supervisors can be prohibitively expensive.Tableau's licensing is pretty straightforward and simple.ROI is very high, but it requires a data preparation/blending tool.I wish there was more of a subscription model with the pricing when it comes to Tableau, so you can get all the latest version upgrades/features if you pay monthly/annually.Tableau can be costly (but this can be indefinable, such as user experience vs. cheaper etc.)Buy 50 at a time. Project your use base every three months, and project your requirements forward.Paying for users you never setup or buying expensive desktop licenses for users who can solve their users with web editing on the server are the two biggest expenses.
