There is a significant degree of sophistication required to compete with Tableau or Cognos.

Insisting on forums, blogs and community outreach in communications, and posting videos on an established calendar would be useful. Nowadays, people are visual or audio or even both in terms of acquiring new knowledge.

All panels, although they are easy to navigate once you have a clear understanding of the software, are not as easy to use as other data extraction UIs. Although you can start with basic Google tools education, you will need a solid explanation of data extraction. If you do not have a complete BI tool, evaluate if your organization will have the need for one in the future. I'm sure Data Studios will grow and expand in the future, but it's not yet a complete replacement.
