We do studies for firms as part of our services. QLTek is still viable but more and more we are hearing about Power BI. Carolina Health Systems just adopted Power BI to replace Tableau due to server costs. view full review »

The team I am part of works on different tools, not just Tableau. The tools are chosen based on the use case. Tableau is not the best choice for traditional reporting ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/categories/reporting-tools/ ), which are still in demand. view full review »

Solution Engineer - QlikView/Qlik Sense at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
Among Tableau, QlikView, and Qlik Sense, I prefer QlikView ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/qlikview ), due to its higher customization capabilities, its associative nature, and its ETL features. view full review »

Founder, Director, Srinivasan Software Solutions Pvt., Ltd. at a tech vendor
We installed a number of modern BI tools in order to evaluate them for our purposes. It didn’t take me long to discover that Tableau was much easier to use than the other tools. Since ours is a small organization and most importantly we tried it for a PoC because this tool has an amazing look and feel. view full review »

We explored other tools such as QlikView and Pentaho, but Tableau stood out in terms of its ease of use, great visualizations and simplicity. We already had an ETL solution in place, so Tableau complemented it well for our use cases. view full review »
Sumit agrawal li?1425541019
Lead Business Analyst at a tech vendor
We evaluated Spotfire, QlikView & Sisense. It came down to a tough choice between Spotfire and Tableau. We finally selected Tableau because it is good in providing visualizations, its integration with R, and it has a lot of connectors with various databases that Spotfire does not have. It also looked promising that it would provide more features in future releases. view full review »

We evaluated Qlik Sense ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/qlik-sense ), SAP Lumira ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/sap-businessobjects-lumira ) and Tableau. We decided on Tableau over Qlik and Lumira for ease of use by the functional teams, and because they have a direct supplier in Venezuela, including support and training. At the time of evaluation in May 2015, SAP Lumira’s analysis development capabilities and its integration with different data sources were not as good as Tableau’s. Even when connecting SAP Lumira with SAP BW, we could not publish analyses. view full review »
Reviewer91872 li?1414330324
Senior HR Analyst at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
We evaluated several potential software systems such as Visier, Lumira ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/comparisons/sap-businessobjects-lumira_vs_tableau ), and Qlik ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/comparisons/qlikview_vs_tableau ), but found Tableau the easiest to use for individuals who did not need to have a programming background. Plus, the freedom to develop from a blank canvas with data that could be from any corner of the company appealed more to our team than working with a set of canned metrics to one specific department. view full review »

Tableau is more GUI based and intuitive. I don't like to code and this does away with a lot of what its competitors force you to do. view full review »

My team evaluated 50 visual analysis tools in 2014. I also was one of the key developers of Cygron Datascope. Tableau was selected because it is the common platform for both data analysts and regular users. Both groups can use it. Of course, analysts can utilize more advanced techniques, but even an average user can understand charts and do basic things after 60 minutes of training. view full review »

I have used a variety of BI-related products: * QlikView: not worth trying. Not good for support (Qlik Japan); ugly charts; limited functions. It’s one strength is that it's free. * IBM Cognos: very scalable. You can do anything with your dashboard/report using HTML; good at all functions. However, it's only suitable for big companies, hard to maintain, and very expensive. * Oracle PBCS/Essbase: good for medium-sized or big enterprises with big/multi-dimensional data; supports Excel. Difficult to set up, and browser-based PBCS is so bad, you may lose your work at any time because of its corrupt JavaScript. * Tableau is good for small-sized companies; reasonable price. But you get what you pay for: limited functions. It's a data visualization tool, not a BI tool. view full review »

I also evaluated MS BI and QlikView. Compared with MS BI, I find Tableau and QlikView have stronger visualization; intuitive data insights; less development lead time - MS BI requires creating OLAP cubes, which takes more time; clearer and simpler charts; and intuitive data mapping/insights. view full review »

I am most familiar with SAP Business Objects Web Intelligence, but have been to classes on Tableau, Power BI, and Qlikview as part of our internal efforts to help the business choose which is right for their needs. R and SAS are under our heading of Advanced Analytic tools in the BI space and will be evaluated in phase 2. view full review »
