Appen
It is well suited for the users and potential employee who are free of any job perspective and need their free time to be utilized. Users can use their free time to be used for submission of interesting tasks.
Whereas the number of tasks are very less and processing time is also very extensive and recruitment takes time more.

If your data sets are coming in without much stewardship then Tableau Prep can help to clean the data before you start trying to create visualizations for your end users. You will save a lot of time this way - rather than seeing problems once you are creating dashboards. If you don't have large data sets or your data is relatively simple, then Tableau Prep may not be needed.

It works well and is user friendly for the basics but needs more options for bring in data (using SQL queries for example) and export format options.

I have not really had to reach out for any kind of customer support for Tableau Prep, so I can't really say. However, the support that Tableau has given for their other products has been great, so I would assume it would be the same here. They are also constantly adding new features and providing software updates, and that is always a plus.

Appen offers projects mostly related to my native language and also according to my expertise . It offers very interesting projects to be completed , which requires not very expertise and less time to be completed for each task. It is also very convenient to use after selection for the task and also well rewarding against the time consumed for the task completion.

Before Prep, we had to do all the data joining and connecting in a Tableau Workbook. Not only did this cause workbooks connected with live data to run frustratingly slowly, a new connection and set-up had to be established every time a new workbook as created, even if you were working with the same data. The extracts produced by Prep allow several workbooks to be working from the same data set-up without any additional work, saving time and stress.
