Tableau Server

It is well suited in an industry rich with data flow and more room for public information. The reason behind the public information use case is that can Tableau can be made visualize value, and in return adds value to proof of concepts or detailed plan. Tableau Server is economical, and many organizations look for such products, as it is no harm to test and try such an enterprise tool.

I can only speak for myself. 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. With some training and help from Tableau support, you can improve your ability to provide analysis to your team or department.

User experience is the most important factor to consider whenever considering capabilities for non-technical business users. If the learning curve is so steep business users must be advanced users to be productive, you hit the wall of diminishing returns, this is exceptionally true when it comes to analyzing data. Transforming data analysts into BI development experts shifts the focus of the analyst from analyzing data to mastering software. Tableau does a masterful job at minimizing the technology and maximizing the users understanding of their data.

This is one area which can be improved. This is also dependent on the infrastructure we run it on. But Tableau Server 8 has had "unidentified" down times which had no answers on further troubleshooting.

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.

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 Tableau server installation has been flawless. Our user base is increasing rapidly each quarter. On the It front, we tend to upgrade the server on a bi-annual basis. Which allows use to minimize the disruption to our users. Overall, we are completely satisfied with Tableau server.

Alternatives Considered

Speed and so many options
Bhanuja Nagore profile photo
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.

With our users being external to our company, and served through a front-end web app, it is challenging to use the native interface for sharing. With that said, we do allow users to save custom filter settings for later retrieval.

Return on Investment

  • It saved time
  • It saved manual power
  • It saved dollars
Bhanuja Nagore 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.
