Excellent tool for Data Visualization with simplicity

I have worked on domains like Telecom and Network where in I have been using Tableau. Its really liked by senior management as it shows each and every bit very clearly to relevant stake holders. For example, Marketing head likes region wise revenue sale dashboard which gives region/sales manager/product wise sale.

PROS

There are many features which lot of users would have liked:- 1. Connection to almost all database 2. Many types of Charts can be created including Sankey, Doughnut, Maps etc. 3. Its has the feature of data blending and data extraction 4. Dashboards can be viewed on multiple devices like tablet, mobile and laptops. 5. Its really fast while drilling down or filtering out from any dashboard.

CONS

Its a bit expensive tool as compared to other data visualization tools however its a value for money.

Reason for choosing Tableau

There were multiple check points before choosing Tableau:- 1. We refereed Gartner quadrant which showcased good image of tableau. 2. Reviews taken from friends who are working in other organisation. 3. Some POCs developed on Trail version of Tableau

Reasons for switching to Tableau

It was a organisation demand however but as and when I started working on Tableau, I really liked working on it.

User-friendly dashboard/report Tool

Tableau is amazing software that has greatly aided our data analysis efforts. Tableau meets all of our needs for data analysis and dashboard creation. The nicest element is that direct use of ad hoc data needs is possible, with no dependencies.

PROS

One of the most useful features of Tableau is the flexibility with which its dashboards may be filtered. Information that is simple to understand, demonstrate, and infer. Any group may quickly and simply extract useful data thanks to a drag-and-drop interface.

CONS

Data syncing problems can cause the dashboards to malfunction. Notifications about impending outages would be greatly appreciated. however, that shouldn't be a deal breaker.

Reasons for switching to Tableau

Tableau offers an intuitive layout and straightforward menus, making it suitable for newcomers. Tableau is an effective business program with data visualization features and compatibility with other popular software packages.

Widely integrated and speedy

Best BI tool out there - super flexible, scalable, securely integrated with most you may need (databricks, alteryx, aws, MATLAB, R etc) and oh my, is it performant! Most dashboards will lag when fed large datasets, not tableau. Allows you to tell your story, quickly and reliably every time.

PROS

Most impressive points (and ones that make it worth the price tag) are performance and the extensive list of native data connectors and partner ecosystem

CONS

Not cheap/very accessible to most SMEs. Free version is really good, but limited in some key functionality (e.g. sharing is only available to paid users or you have to share public/create potential issues with data protection)

Tableau Review

We only have one license because of the cost. This means that only one user can edit reports, etc. This makes it very difficult as the user who runs the daily report isn't necessarily the user who we would want to create new reports or edit existing ones. More than one license is too expensive and working with a single license is annoying.

PROS

We use it mostly to create a daily report. Once it is setup, modifying the dated is simple enough to produce the same report daily.

CONS

It is very slow when trying to modify an existing report to add something new. Takes many minutes to load after each additional join. Takes a very long time to create new reports. Also, I would like to see the SQL that is being run in an easier way (currently can edit the log files and find it, but very annoying and difficult to find the queries in a text editor)

Reason for choosing Tableau

We are moving to use Metabase in the coming weeks due to the license issue and slow loading speeds in Tableau.
