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.

This software was adopted at my company for its ease of use, cost, and ease of sharing information. The distribution of information is important for the company as information cannot reside in the cloud due to information security.

Pros

The software is very user friendly and easy to establish. There a lot of things inherently built into the software that allow for easy display of information and base analytics.

Cons

While the software is great, especially with it's low cost, heavier analytics is either performed by the user themselves or would have to have an intimate knowledge or R or some other tool.

There are probably better programs out there but if you are looking for an affordable solution and one with a great team backing it - definitely give Tableau a chance in your research of a BI tool.

Pros

Drag and drop user interface makes data management much easier than ever before. With Tableau you essentially can view results in a matter of seconds from each additional layer or section of data you add to your dashboard or KPI's.

Cons

Even though it is an easy program to learn, it takes time to invest in it's entire capability (just like any other program). You'll also want to make sure you are familiar with data to start with.

Best product for data visualizations and business intelligence solutions.Provides ease of use for interactive data visualization dashboards offering a new revolutionary approach to make better decisions faster. Can share analysis and your organization can access your dashboards.

Formatting using the control button to drop down and look at default properties should be enhanced.
Single valued list with radio buttons, drop down on the filter to show all value customizations and table calculations are little complex for beginners to comprehend and use.

Would love to see a less expensive version for every day users.

Pros

The options available for presenting data; from simple dashboards to more elaborate story boards. There's excellent flexibility in how presentations are shared (via web, static pdf, permission-based access).

Cons

It is not an easy piece of software to learn once beyond the basics.It is a fairly intuitive software initially, but the more complex tasks take considerable time to master.

Overall one of the best BI Tools out there, with some time invested it can be a powerful tool for any kind of analysis.

Pros

It's a very nice tool in terms of visuals, with a lot of options and it's very easy to make visual changes, even compared to other bi tools. It's very easy to start using and the connections to diferent data sources is pretty simple and intuitive, given you have some analytical background, even if it is with excel.

Cons

If you want to do more advanced dashboards and analysis, like an elaborated cohort dashboard you will have some trouble, but with some time invested to understand how the software works it's perfectly possible. even though the community and the support is very helpful. Also, the desktop software as well as the server is sort of heavy, it needs some processing power if you want it to run smoothly, especially if you have a lot of data. Another con is the high cost for companies.

Pros

I use tableau to help with forecasting and lead/project analytics. Most specifically, I can pull reports, charts, and "pretty" visuals to help me better explain during my quarterly overviews.

For quick, simple forecasting/estimating I just use Pivot tables on excel -- I leave Tableau for my more extensive reporting. As a self taught Tableau user, I'd like to see more youtube or tutorial videos for reference.

Value for Money

I would highly recommend this product to anybody who:
1. Has high number of records to visualize
2. Need a user friendly visualization system
3. Wants all kinds of visualization techniques

Pros

The pros of the software definately consists of the type of visualizations Tableau provides. Bar charts, pie charts, global maps. You can analyze the data any way you want. With the help of tableau programming you can write custom transformation routines. The most important and visually soothing feature I find is Story. You can group several dashboards together to form a story. It can be presented to management as a story. E.g. Sales Story, Marketing revenue story, etc. Also Tableau can be connected to various data sources like Oracle, SQL Server, SAP BI.

Cons

I believe as far as basic visualizations are concerned, anybody can learn Tableau. But when complex visualizations are in picture, you need to write Tableau program lines. This can be difficult for employees from no-geek background. Considering other features this product has provided, I don't see any other cons.

Pros

It’s ease of use means anyone can use it (regardless of technical or analytical background). Highly intuitive interface allows data set creation, data exploration and dashboard creation for all experience levels.
They offer a free cloud-based version available for startup budgets or companies looking to try before they buy.

Cons

Some more experienced users feel Tableau is lacking in advanced features so if you’re looking for more sophisticated capabilities such as embedded BI, data preparation and metadata management, you may be disappointed.

This is a great tool I have yet fully learned to use, I am looking forward to exploring some more advanced features and see what the outcome could be.

Pros

Part of the things I have liked the most is the ability to easily drag and drop the tabs into the different areas of the software and automatically react to it generating an instant visualization very easy to understand.

Cons

Sometimes when updating the positioning of the information in the panes doesn't fully update automatically being forced to use the Command+Z tool until reverting the whole process and having to almost start over.

Crisp, clean displays of information for reporting to management. Basically able to skip Excel and go right from a database to Tableau.

Pros

Importing databases and viewing data in a variety of formats and graphics is as easy as a few mouse clicks. Setting up custom displays takes a bit more work and was a bit confusing, but overall it wasn't that hard.

Cons

May be a bit pricey for some (like management), but was worth it in the end. Also, the standard viewing templates tend to be all bunched up, could use an easier to organize drop down menu to keep the screen from being cluttered.

Thus far - the graphics seem to be a step upwards from what we could leverage in Business Objects

Pros

The graphics are impressive and having the data display in trending fashion will allow lay users of data to better understand what they see and how to action

Cons

I'm not completely sure why, but our IT analysts tell me that there is a data column limitation that then leads to replicating screen displays to get expanded information on a particular data feature choice - this may become a challenge

Gave an edge over Excel and easier than programming in R or python. Very responsive.

Pros

Lots of easy to use connectors to useful data sources. Easy to present the data in an appealing and easy to understand manner. Filtering and sorting make it easy to use on the fly.

Cons

Some features were not intuitive and had to find an example/tutorial to implement, there might be some help features here but I'm not aware of them. So a better help feature that includes examples might make this program even better. The program has been adding useful features each version, but earlier I had to rely more upon R integration to get the results .

I am a consultant on health economics and the graphics are stunning and the provide me with the clearest most understandable manner of presenting my findings. For my work explaining big data, no other program can manage the same amount of information as Tableau. Other probrams crash or freeze, but Tableau is able to take everything in its stride. I have used Tableau to make infographics and maps of Colombia - my country - and generally, I have to present my work to people that are not experts in the field and this program allows me to do so.

Tableau is fantastic in that it's highly customizable and accommodates pretty much all of our reporting needs. It makes it very easy to create, visualize, and distribute a report to your organization. There is a lot of good functionality.

You need to work very hard to accommodate all the performance quirks and there are a lot of random limitations. It is like Salesforce in that it is as good as your resources allow it to be.

Pros

This is extremely useful when creating personalized dashboards that are needing to be shared on different platforms. What I like most about it, is that I can link this to my excel files and schedule this to update automatically.

Cons

I wish there was a little bit more freedom and personalization in the dashboards. I would like to perform a more in depth analysis in this software.
