We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"At $70 per month, I think the price is a bit scary. I have a small consulting firm in Ghana, working in about 15 different African countries, and when it comes to our part of the world, $70 a month is a lot of money for software."
"The professional version of Tableau is quite expensive."
