ROI can only be attained by use, so the ROI will be a function of adoption, not features of the product. Make sure you have the culture and an execution strategy to get people engaged and using it. Compared to other BI software, it's very easy to use, but not everyone will start using it just because there is a new icon on their desktop. Figure out adoption. Focus on it. If people are using it, the ROI will be there, but if you spend 6-7 figures on an enterprise feature set and nobody uses it, it will have been wasted. For the prototyping situation described earlier - one complex dashboard built from scratch then implemented in SSRS - the saved development time alone paid for the Desktop license. View full review »

We’ve found quite a bit of savings using Tableau, based on the time it takes to develop ad-hoc reports, changes in process due to new insights and report automation. View full review »

Our first dashboard caught an issue in the system and almost completely paid for the server license with the money saved. View full review »

In my experience most that Tableau will have a tough time to displace. Tableau is most successful when it is introduced at a departmental or subsidiary level in an organization. That’s the starting point, and grow the ‘footprint’ from there. With that background in mind, make the initial pricing & licensing simple for a department to budget for & approve. View full review »

Tableau offers a rapid ROI in comparison to other tools. It’s a very cheap tool, but it has some barriers in big enterprises. View full review »

ROI has yet to be determined as the implementation is less than a year old. Adoption has been slower than expected but gaining momentum lately. I attribute the slower adoption to the fact that using Tableau is a shift in thinking for those wanting to use it and therefore involves some growing pains that some are hesitant to embrace. However, those that have embraced it are beginning to reap the benefits. View full review »

I have not measured this, but the time saved by allowing the tool to make the necessary changes instead of going back to the spreadsheet is definitely worth my time and the company's money. View full review »

While I don't have specific $$ numbers, I can say that several reports that we were maintaining previously in Excel that took 4-5 hours to be updated manually each month, now can be updated in 20 seconds. I do think that this would probably be true of any of the products similar to Tableau available on the market now. View full review »

I can say that it took about six months for Tableau to payback the investment done just by the fact that it reduced 99% of the rework for a single report. View full review »

ROI is strictly related to how are you using the tool. You can publish dashboards and embed them in a live website which can bring you more hits, or you can provide your users/clients access to your Tableau server, which is related to how much they are paying for that. Use your licenses wisely so they are worth the high amount you’re paying. View full review »

Our employees no longer have to search for information in many systems and/or use a web search; they can just go to the BI platform and do a lot of analysis by just clicking. So, with this time savings, our ROI is more than 100% - a lucrative investment. View full review »

Generally, assessing ROI is a very open-ended question. Real ROI if that significant will never be revealed. Day-to-day savings are in time savings, which are viable, to say the least. View full review »

ROI is difficult to estimate as a lot of our use case revolves around streamlining internal processes / analysis. We are now providing analytic solutions to clients where we price on our hours, plus pass through costs for seats on the Tableau Server and a monthly maintenance fee. As we scale this up, we expect to drive profitable revenue through our analytics products. View full review »

Return = time saving, efficiency. Investment = license fee & study time. When you consider how much time is wasted on DB work, including visualization, the license fee is a small issue. Unfortunately, many people are concerning only "the cost of software". They miss "the hidden in-efficiency". View full review »

I’d suggest taking the following steps: * Define what you want to get out of the tool. (People don’t always need these types of solutions, and this becomes evident once they actually get in there with the data they have.) * Make sure you have the existing data needed. * Download a trial version and play with the software and develop prototype dashboards and analysis * If you actually have a recurring need, then I’d look at purchasing Tableau desktop. If the need for use and analysis extends to many across the organization, Tableau Server could be your best option. View full review »
