Tableau Software


 

Tableau is an integrated business intelligence (BI) and analytics solution that helps to analyze key business data and generate meaningful insights. The solution helps businesses to collect data from multiple source points such as SQL databases, spreadsheets, cloud apps like Google Analytics and Salesforce to create a collective dataset.

Tableau's live visual analytics and interactive dashboard allow slicing & dicing datasets for generating relevant insights and exploring new opportunities. Users can create interactive maps and analyze data across regions, territories, demographics and more. Tableau helps to create a narrative story of the data analysis with interactive visualizations that can be shared with their audience.

Tableau can be customized to serve a number of industry verticals including banking, communication, education, healthcare, real estate, manufacturing and technology. The solution can be either installed on-premises or hosted on the cloud as a SaaS application. Users can also view and analyze data on their Android and iOS smartphones with Tableau Mobile app.

I would recommend Tableau software for Business institutions and companies conducting business intelligence

Pros

The Software dashboard is neat and has all the variables for data analysis. The charts and graphs results are represented well after you've run the analysis of your data. It is one of the best business intelligence software out there in the market

Cons

The software needs to be more user-friendly especially when there is a huge amount of data. The after-sale support needs to be improvised

Fight your way through it, it is worth the effort.

Pros

Highly, highly flexible and functional.
Provides easy access to data tables if you like to stare at and verify numbers; more importantly it makes that staring no longer necessary and replaces it with much faster visual analysis of data.
Has much of the look of Microsoft products Excel's pivot tables, so easy to transition from them to Tableau.

Cons

There's a lot to learn, it is not intuitive to "just" Microsoft users (although it is intuitive to pivot table users).

I do not have anything bad to say, but if I can contribute something it is related to sometimes understand where are some variables, depending on the amount of information is the computer you should use to have the expected performance.

But it is a very easy to use program, with many tools, many options to customize all types of visualizations, you can perform calculations within the same interface of the program, it is a tool with a lot of potential, which is constantly updated

Pros

It is a very versatile program, it allows you to make different presentations, from simple graphics to multivariate maps. It has the possibility to connect to different databases, which makes it a very powerful tool.

Cons

sometimes it is difficult to understand the location of the variables to achieve the visualization that is desired; On the other hand, sometimes map-type visualizations do not present as many details as one would like, or the union of several spatial-type files causes the program to occupy a lot of RAM, so it is necessary to have a good computer to improve the conditions of program operation

Overall, a very good product. It has a free trial license, so I recommend a trial to anyone interested in data visualizations.

Pros

I am a longtime user of Tableau an I think I should update my previous review.
Some years ago, Tableau was already a top-contender. Starting from this position, it has enlarged the list of compatible databases, and the capabilities to mix and match data from different sources.
In the last weeks, Tableau software has changed is pricing scheme, and now it offers a reduced-price "viewer" license. In the past, you were forced to buy "the more costly "publisher license" even fro viewers.

Cons

The palette of available visualizations is the same since too many years. (e.g. it is missing radial plots)

Overall, I'm a very satisfied with the product especially the support from the community I get. Tableau keeps on innovating and improving its performance and features. At the time of this writing, Tableau has come up with a new extract called Hyper and it's tremendously fast! It also has come up with a data prep tool to support the Tableau Desktop.

Pros

It's very easy to use overall even non-programmers can use them by visually clicking and dropping objects around.
Can perform dashboards with a few mouse clicks.

Cons

Price is a little too high for a mid-sized company to subscribe. When too many filters are placed on the dashboard, it can be very slow so I would advise users to limit the number of filters to use.

Pros

There are many different ways to visualize data. From creating dashboards in Excel, to creating your own customized code in Javascript, there are options for anybody based on how simple they want the experience to be and how complex they want their product to be. Tableau provides a great middle point. It isn't as customize-able as pure programming would be, but it's far more user-friendly. It plays well with lots of other programs, including the Google Drive suite and WordPress. It has varying price-points, based on your individual needs. I'm currently using it to make a vast database visible and accessible to users with just a couple mouse clicks. Tableau is capable of doing a LOT.

Cons

Don't be fooled by its clean interface and simple online tutorials. If you want to do some interesting stuff with Tableau, it's going to take some patience and know-how. There's a wonderful online community of people who are willing to answer your questions and offer examples, but at the end of the day, Tableau projects tend to take some TLC to get to the finish line.

Also, because this is the middle-point between custom coding and incredibly basic transformations, some of the most extreme options are not available. For example, I wanted to allow users of my visualization to select a data subset for their own needs and export it as a .csv to their device. While exporting is an option in Tableau, the organization of the exported data is wonky, and can't be customized. Instead of getting the rows and columns in the order I'd like them, users are getting the data in alphabetical order. This isn't a problem, per se, seeing as the users can easily sort the data out themselves in a program like Excel. I just wish I could have figured that out for them.

Tableau is powerful, but it's not all-powerful. Then again, if you're not looking to get to crazy, it's going to fit your needs perfectly, and simply.

Ease to display data and make it digestible to people that have never worked with data.

Pros

I like how Tableau makes it easy to analyse and understand data through its visualization options, it's also fun and when I say challenging I mean that before discovering Tableau, I wasn't too sure I would be able to analyse data quantitatively, but Tableau by challenging me, as not a quantitative data person, made me really like data visualization!

Cons

Sometimes Tableau is not as intuitive as I wish it was, so sometimes it does take me a day to figure out something, it's usually related to how I organize my data, but still I wish it was a little more flexible, especially when it comes to what type of chart I would want to use.

We use it for structuring and ordering our business intelligence data

Pros

You can combine multiple data sources into a single dashboard, that can quite easily be created with drag-and-drop tools and widgets. It has integration with programming language R, meaning if you know your way around that language, statistics and analysis becomes alot easier.

Cons

The learning curve is steep due to how extensive it is and how broadly it can be used for data analysis and visualization, especially if you do not have programming experience. Account licenses can be expensive, and combined with the time needed to learn and setup a system, means a quite big investment before you see any results.

Pros

Overall, the product itself has given us what we need but dealing with the support has been a nightmare.

Definitely test using their trial offer. We found the integration to be fairly straightforward and were able to get up and running after only a couple of hours of work.

The product has some UI issues but is robust and functions well for our needs. If you buy, just hope that you don't have to deal with customer service or a sales rep.

Cons

Our sales associate couldn't have been any worse. He didn't have a ton of product knowledge, would say he was going to do something and not do it and came across as a sleazy, double charging us and not sending a refund.

In general, I have just spent way too much time chasing the support team and sales team to get a response. There is zero internal communication and depending who you talk to you will be told a different answer.

Example, after our purchase we received a broken URL for our authorization code which seemed like a very minor issue but took more than a week to resolve and led to more than a month of headaches and issues.

It has been super disappointing and I would not recommend this product to anyone. The headaches far out way any advantages this product might have over other providers.

There are really a lot of different things that I like so much in this business intelligence software of Tableau. First of all, it is a huge number of possible integrations from different programs which contain the statistic of the different departments of your company, like CRM systems, Excel tables and so on. So I could easily upload all the information inside this software, put it on one dashboard and see everything in one place. Also, there are a very convenient interface and well-realized automatic-reporting system.

Cons

The dashboard on which you can see all the information that you need in my opinion requires revision regarding the way of visualization of this data. There is lack of popular illustrations of the statistic that is popular for most of the people.

We were able to perform statistical analysis on social media data from twitter quickly with high-speed graph rendering and operations

Pros

The software has simple and easy to use controls to create a lot of analytical views. The options of graphs and charts that can be created are also large in number. Data connection for almost all types of sources is available

Cons

Few driver issues exist on OSX because of lack of native driver support. This problem, however, is solved in the licensed version and exists only in the community/academic version

More effective understanding of data tables and columns (the quality and nature of the data contained in them). One-stop shop for displaying large amounts of data broken down in multiple ways.

Pros

Enables quick way to examine new data sets (it is much easier to visually see and take in versus running standard purely text-based data profiling methods)
Extremely fast
Multiple, indispensable dynamic visualizations can be displayed on one dashboard and driven by one set of parameters
Very responsive to the needs and desires of the user community
Highly customizable, but not unnecessarily complex

Cons

It is very expensive which keeps it out of reach of many smaller companies/non-profits (both Tableau Desktop and Server, but especially Tableau Server)
Somewhat of a steep learning curve
