I have also worked with Microsoft's Power BI and I've found Tableau to be far more flexible and user-friendly in terms of the variety of visualizations it allows you to create. View full review »

In our case, people were already using Tableau. There are other groups within our company that are using other types of tools like MicroStrategy, and we already had BusinessObjects and Cognos here. But because of the ease of use and the self-service nature of the product we decided, for products in that category, that Tableau was the best. View full review »

Power BI, which was in its early stages at the time, but now sprawling across Latin America. Yellowfin, who we are a partner with now. We are now looking at Birst. We chose Tableau because they were the whole package at the time. View full review »

I did try another platform, MicroStrategy. I spent one year and several webinars on both companies, Tableau and MicroStrategy. I decided to invest in Tableau because of its simplicity; it's more simple to understand and less complicated than MicroStrategy. With Tableau's infrastructure to build a dashboard, I found the perfect instrument. I also had interest in QlikView, but it did not fit my requirements. View full review »

I have trialed a number of different tools similar to Tableau. There seems to be a whole group of them. However, I found that Tableau was by far the easiest to use. Within about 20 minutes of playing around I was able to quickly make fantastic looking, incredibly useful charts that I struggled to make in Excel or other data discovery tools. View full review »

I have not reviewed other options. I think it does not exist; if it exists, I would know and leave a record to compare these tools. View full review »

ClickView. ClickView seemed easy to use, very simple, but it could not support the whole company. It couldn't be scaled. We looked at Oracle BI. It seems that it's very easy to use, very competitive against Tableau, and it's a little bit cheaper. It seems that we have a competitive advantage going with Oracle. Oracle in the past had OBIEE that was hard to use, very expensive, and modeling was hard. Changing the modeling was difficult. We decided not to go with Oracle at that time. Now it's cloud-based, the TCO is very cheap. But we had already gone with Tableau. View full review »
