September 12 2013 - Even though it has its shortcomings, Tableau is headed in the right direction by making large amounts of data available to the traditional business user. I dont think its simple to learn Tableau; but its not extremely difficult either.
November 22 2013 - We were using Zoomerang for quite a few years. Zoomerang was very intuitive and very reasonably priced. They were bought out and the price skyrocketed, which is why we decided to make a switch. I would say Zoomerang was more user friendly, and also had more functionality that was standard.

And that, in my own personal opinion, is what makes a company great.

It links things up. If it doesn’t work, you can change things very quickly. You don’t have to write data definitional language.
November 5 2013 - As an "old" MBA I know the concepts - they haven't really changed - but wouldn't have known how to apply them in the internet world.
