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

We use Tableau when we want to obtain a fast and efficient result, since this option allows to work with data in real time or in memory, being able to extract massive data for a limited exploration quickly, using technology of database and computational graphics to analyze enormous sets of data and which is used in the different areas of the organization when we want to have quick results and easy to analyze according to the graphics presented.

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.

I still haven't found something that stumped me for long. The company materials are first-rate and their seems to be a natural affinity among the professionals using the product. It seems there are many who want to help those that are following them onto the platform. I've never noticed any condescension to new users or obvious questions in the forums or my personal exchanges.

Again, training is the key and the company provides a lot of example videos that will help users discover use cases that will greatly assist their creation of original visualizations. As with any new software tool, productivity will decline for a period. In the case of Tableau, the decline period is short and the later gains are well worth it.

Breadth of Deployment

The department I worked in had around 30 people. I believe we had at least 15 licenses possibly more.

Alternatives Considered

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.
Excel is the ultimate jack-of-all-trades Swiss army knife approach. You can do almost anything but it is missing much of the polish of dedicated applications of Tableau. Great for the initial approach to a new dataset. I have created some custom Excel macros that go in and run calculations on combinations of fields -- mostly to see if there are data relationships. This is hard to do almost anywhere else. D3.js is an incredibly flexible tool if you are willing to deal with the tremendous overhead of the associated programming. It has a huge learning curve and I would never recommend it for the exploratory or initial examination phase. But for incredibly detailed and robust displays, it is terrific. Expect to take a week to get anything done right.Lumira is a nice get started and get something out the door product. It still feels like a beta-level product. This could be useful for departments that don't have specialized people or want something more than what Excel offers but aren't willing to pay for the full Tableau license. Good for SAP houses of course but I wouldn't count out the other two.

i) If the connection is not live, then scheduling is possible. It is also possible to refresh (Named - Extract Refresh ) the data inside the dashboard but Tableau offers no functionality to do traditional production type reporting( sending reports to email). It doesn’t offer features related to distribution, or scheduling and notification of reports. Dashboard Export Options are available as Image, Data, CrossTab & PDF.ii) One of the major aspects of reporting is access control. For example the business intelligence team interacts with lots of business in finance, product, marketing etc. Each and every of these businesses consists of their corresponding employee hierarchy starting from executives in the top of the pyramid to the developer who is at the bottom of the pyramid. But everyone in the hierarchy shouldn't have access to view or modify the report. That ia why access control is required. Also if the company is part of an IPO they would like to restrict a lot of key metrics from the employees who are at the bottom of the pyramid.Tableau provides great access control facilities so that we can control sharing capabilities. We can define group and assign members to each and every group. Now we can configure each and every group to have specific privileges which is really helpful. So we restrict not only permissions for viewing a report but also different tool access capabilities. Tableau has to improve a lot in its sharing capabilities if they want to stick to the top.

Didn't have any problem connecting multiple varied data sources to Tableau Desktop. I mainly used SQL Server and Excel connections, but tested several others and it worked great.

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.
  • It is very difficult to quantify the effect that using Tableau has had on our clients. The one major benefit I can think of is the reduction of operational expenses. Tableau allows them to keep one person who maintains ten dashboards instead of the twenty people it took when they were using Excel.
  • Having a series of relevant, automatically refreshing dashboards allows for "quick response" to business problems, which could save tremendous amounts of money. If a problem is occurring, you would see it on your dashboard the next day, instead of an analyst finding it a month later.
