Anaconda shines if you need to set up a data analysis or data science lab in no time. Newcomers to Python or Jupiter can be up and running in minutes and playing with the most popular packages. I think the Anaconda Cloud package could benefit from some UX improvements to clarify the migration process. Integration with external data sources could be improved as well.

Tableau Server

Tableau does a great job of providing a simple interface to access various dashboards by groups, and has powerful development tools, but they can be a little quirky. It would be much better if there were better admin tools to analyze data sources, the dependencies in the database, and who owns the various dashboards throughout the system.

  • While I have some thoughts for improvements in the Tableau Desktop application, the server environment is a powerful, growing, and improving software. No significant cons.

We will continue our use of Tableau server due to the following factors:- Cost effectiveness. This persists from year-to-year. Tableau consistently gives us the best value for the cost- Reliability. Tableau server has been rock-solid for our users, particularly during emergencies.- Innovation. You can bet that Tableau will release stable new versions on a regular basis.We have often experienced the need for a function in Tableau that will be included in a future release.

Desktop has always worked perfectly. Server sees occasional issues, most of which will be solved by the IT department learning more about the best way to administrate and maintain it.

Due to it's skillful use of in-memory processing and columnar data structures ensures optimal performance. However, with larger data sets, especially with LIVE connections to back-end DBMS platforms, performance degrades quickly. However, with minimal planning and Tableau data extracts, exceptional performance is achievable.

I think the folks that work in support are generally pretty good at what they do (when you get them on a WebEx). But the process of reporting issues to them and waiting for a response (via email only) is a hassle. I never understood why you can't just call them up and discuss the issues with them. It would take a handful of email exchanges before they would agree to a WebEx session. That was frustrating.

In our case, they hired a private third party consultant to train our dept. It was extremely boring and felt like it dragged on. Everything I learned was self taught so I was not really paying attention. But I do think that you can easily spend a week on the tool and go over every nook and cranny. We only had the consultant in for a day or two.

The sales consultants do an amazing job of introducing the tool and its capabilities. They are also helpful in explaining the layout of the desktop client and its different functionality.Keep in mind that they use a sample data source (MS Excel) with a very small amount of data to show off what it can do. What you have to remember is that you are buying the tool so that you can connect to large amounts of data (and possibly blend data together from different databases).

My department was largely Excel and paper-based when I started, so there's been a tremendous amount of work to get the data into shape, so when I look at the overall implementation of our visualization and reporting infrastructure, I'm less satisfied. Tableau has been wonderful, the one place that would get me to a 10 is if it was easier to tune workbook performance on Tableau Server, there are a huge number of variables to deal with across the workbook/application/hardware stack. In a small environment like ours that takes more effort than I'd like.

Alternatives Considered

Other systems might be easier to set-up but Anaconda is a fairly flexible analytics toolkit. It can be configured in a way that truly matches the way in which your business or analytics department works. Built on top of lots of open source projects so things aren't siloed and you can avoid vendor lock-in.

There were a lot of reasons why we chose Tableau and the least is the cost but also the way Tableau stores data in the columnar fashion instead of in Cubes. We went through a painstaking selection process and at the end, came down to a couple of vendors and we ended up with the product that was least to pair up with Amazon Web Services to create a decent and cost-effective proof of concept and we landed with the solution we have today.

Return on Investment

  • Extremely quick turnaround time to set up data science experiments
  • Reduction of troubleshooting time when deploying new packages and dependencies
  • Low risk environment due to the community edition
Daniel Blazquez profile photo
  • The foundation of our business was built largely using Tableau server - the overall value that Tableau has brought is hard to quantify. A lot.
  • One challenge we've encountered is when the server has experienced interface design changes. Since we use it as a part of a larger application, even minor layout changes have a negative impact on our environment.
  • The JavaScript API is a tad limited, so we've had to do some creative programming to work around those limits.
  • The (fairly) opaque underlying database structure puts additional limitations on our ability as an OEM/reseller partner. There are several metrics that would benefit us if we had more insight/access.
