Amazing to process data from multiple sources

The tool is must and Tableau prep is more effective as it reduce the data cleaning work drastically. Even you can use processed data to Python or some other analytics rather than Tableau Dashboard itself.

Pros

Tableau has a tool called Prep which is quite handy for data import from multiple sources be it excel, relational table, plain text. You can easily refine the data and further use it for analytics.

Cons

Selecting features during preparation of visual analytics is quite cumbersome. Also chart selection and fitting the data require so much of training.

Reasons for switching to Tableau

Analytics used to be done using php programming which takes time and no data cleaning feature.

Great BI/Visualization tool

It has a lot of features whereas some smaller types of products have very limited functionalities. Some options though have a much easier way of sharing/introducing new users, while for Tableau some extra configuration is required.

Pros

The best feature is the data visualization aspect of it; the tool can pretty much do and extract whatever analysis needed from the database.

Cons

Tableau is a tool that needs a great technical background for working on - without some extensive training there could not be multiple users in the organization. The level of investment is as any other data visualization tools, so depending on how much the tool will be used and how many users the company has, it might be a big financial investment.

Reasons for switching to Tableau

As data insertion becomes huge, graphs and charts become quite unreadable and slow; same databases probably have a more well-performing reporting on Power BI, for instance.
