We used ClicData dashboards in a somewhat unorthodox way: we used "Indicators", or icons within tables to represent data, and the results looked great. The ability to integrate 3rd party HTML into dashboards was valuable (although Clic Data correctly warns that response time may suffer).The ability to start small and release dashboards incrementally suited our needs very well. We also valued the responsive account team getting us quickly pointed in the right direction.

Tableau [Desktop] is well suited for the requirement where the end user [wants] real time data [in order to make a] business decision. Like in case of Inventory Management, the Organization [wants] to identify the problem [and in] such case Tableau provide the ideal solution.In cases where the Predicative Analysis need to be performed on data, Tableau lack the capabilities to solve this problem, where organization looking for the forecasting dashboards.

  • Once getting past the basics, creating more complex structures and calculations can be more challenging and less intuitive than other reporting tools.
  • Maintaining version synchronization between server and desktop is annoying. Would be better if the server compatibility could be specified in the desktop.
  • Support for 3rd party olap technologies could be better.

Our use of Tableau Desktop is still fairly low, and will continue over time. The only real concern is around cost of the licenses, and I have mentioned this to Tableau and fully expect the development of more sensible models for our industry. This will remove any impediment to expansion of our use.

Like I mentioned before, the ease of use means we not only get very quick results and beautiful dashboards in minutes, it means my team is actually using it because they aren't frustrated in the learning curve or wasting time trying to accomplish simple tasks.

Overall, I would say Tableau Desktop could be a very useful tool in some situations like what I mentioned in my case but it could also be no that useful and unnecessary expensive option in some other situations. It boiled down what skillsets and legacy tools that you already have before this decision.

When used as a stand-alone tool, Tableau Desktop has unlimited uptime, which is always nice. When used in conjunction with Tableau Server, this tool has as much uptime as your server admins are willing to give it. All in all, I've never had an issue with Tableau's availability.

Tableau Desktop's performance is solid. You can really dig into a large dataset in the form of a spreadsheet, and it exhibits similarly good performance when accessing a moderately sized Oracle database. I noticed that with Tableau Desktop 9.3, the performance using a spreadsheet started to slow around 75K rows by about 60 columns. This was easily remedied by creating an extract and pushing it to Tableau Server, where performance went to lightning fast

We've only needed support a couple times in the beginning as we were learning the system and how to display our data in interesting ways. Every time we reached out we got very detailed responses and were connected to someone that you could tell was very interested in making sure we were happy with how things were going.

We have required almost zero technical support over the entire duration of using Tableau. On the very few occasions that we did have to engage support teams, the responses were very fast, professional, and helpful. Tableau uses a Salesforce Customer Community to serve as the primary support / case management platform, empowering users with an ability to quickly submit new support tickets and check the status of existing tickets.

It is admittedly hard to train a group of people with disparate levels of ability coming in, but the software is so easy to use that this is not a huge problem; anyone who can follow simple instructions can catch up pretty quickly.

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.

Alternatives Considered

ClicData

ClicData was the most flexible. It is cloud-based and even has WebService access. You can publish your data for access from other applications. The sheer number of data connectors is amazing. The ability to not only create dashboards, but you can schedule them to be delivered to specific recipients on a scheduled basis via PDF or a static HTML page.

Excel is the main one I've used and it seems pretty weak stacked against Tableau. However Excel is a pretty cheap option. If you want advanced analytics, prediction, tabular and visual reporting, simple import vs export, and interactive reporting, Tableau is the way to go. It's strong.

Tableau Desktop's scaleability is really limited to the scale of your back-end data systems. If you want to pull down an extract and work quickly in-memory, in my application it scaled to a few tens of millions of rows using the in-memory engine. But it's really only limited by your back-end data store if you have or are willing to invest in an optimized SQL store or purpose-built query engine like Veritca or Netezza or something similar.
