The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.

Tableau Desktop

Tableau is well suited for scenarios where we need to show data visually instead of tabular data. Because Tableau Desktop helps in summarizing the data, and summary data can be well presented in visual form only. If we have tabular data we need to first perform a few calculations and based on that we can create fields which will be used for creating graphs and charts.

Pros

  • Crunches huge datasets
  • Has versatility in functionality and grouping capabilities
  • Native XML macro language is easy to master
  • The platform has great visualization tools
Marc Gilbert profile photo
  • Graphs and charts are built very easily.
  • Tableau is very good at showing data visually
  • Easily help make a decision by looking at the pattern

Cons

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation
Marc Gilbert profile photo
  • Tableau is ill-suited to work with SSAS cubes, at least when you are used to analysis within Microsoft tools
  • Data preparation is not up-to-par with other leading vendor tools (although can be improved through Alteryx if you have access to it)
  • The ease-of-use is true for basic analysis, but rapidly gives way to a steep learning curve with more complex queries or when the business context is more mathematics oriented

Because right now its the best option out there (disclosure: I haven't used Qlikview or some of the other direct competitors of Tableau). The big investment is in Tableau Server not desktop. For the cost of the license of Tableau desktop, its a pretty good deal. You can hook it up to pretty much any data source easily. You can easily share the visualizations with your team/colleagues easily. Tableau Desktop is generally easy to use for business users. But the more advanced stuff is better suited for a analyst or someone with a IT/CS background.

Entry-level data analysis is accessible even to beginners, some advanced analysis is possible, but it is not at this time an end-to-end solution for analytics, though imprvements are coming from version 10.2.

The performance of tableau heavily depends on size of data and sheet objects and visualizations used. So yes the performance of tableau degrades based on its complexity.

It's fairly straightforward to set up and upgrade. If you can install a generic piece of modern software like MS Office, you won't have any trouble.

Alternatives Considered

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.
Marc Gilbert profile photo
I have used SSRS, Crystal Reports, Microsoft Excel, and Business Objects. Tableau offers more functionality than the rest and is pretty intuitive. I think SSRS is the easiest to use. Query speed is excellent with SSRS (at least when you are connected to SQL Server). Microsoft Excel is also intuitive but harder to maintain when the file is being touched by multiple people. I think Business Objects is the worst product out of all of them. Crystal Reports:Comes in 3rd place You are limited in what you can do. Nothing is intuitive. Isn't fun to use at all. The last version I used was 11 and I had to modify someone else's reports. What they left behind was a mess (isn't it always?). So having to go into CR and update the report was doable but just a painful process because of the way the UI is layed out. If the only tool you have is BO Xcelsius, and you are are trying to visualize anything beyond a few thousand rows do yourself a favor and get Tableau. Xcelsius was the USE CASE that allowed us to get Tableau. Its very limited in what it can do. Its unfortunate that companies have to keep on spending money on new tools but these older tools really are limited in what they can do and the UI's usually suck. I think SSRS has a pretty nice UI. Its simple and it allows you to do drag and drop which saves time. If you are a Microsoft shop, then you know that the best way to build reports is to let the SQL do all the heavy lifting and then just have your SSRS report do the final tweaks. I liked how easy it was to build sub-reports in SSRS. It just matches up a key found in the report and then displays all the details of that key in the sub-report. Creating parameters is also very easy to do in SSRS. Tableau is fun to use and there is a lot you can do with it. Because of how hot it is right now, you might even get new business if you tell them you are using Tableau :) (and then you can go back and measure the ROI in Tableau desktop).

With Tableau on the server, it is easy to share dashboards. It is also easy to develop reports on your desktop then pass the file to the server to be shared.

Although tableau is highly interactive and fast but with very large dataset its performance degrades heavily. So up to certain extent its really good but after that we have to take care of its performance issues.

Return on Investment

  • This has sped up the process of analysis.
  • We can now automate process which were performed manually.
  • Analysis can be performed more frequently.
Marc Gilbert profile photo
  • Saves analysts tremendous amounts of time from authoring/formatting/distributing traditional rigid reports in Excel.
  • Enhances skill sets of users to better understand how data is structured and its impact on business in areas previously 'invisible' using traditional wall of text reports, resulting in 'cleaner' data which gives more visibility to all areas previously deemed not relevant.
  • Ability to answer business questions quickly and allow rapid prototyping of dashboards which gives stakeholders much faster turnaround time to reach decisions.
