ClicData

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

Tableau Desktop is better for data analysis and visualization. Its advanced visualization features helped us better understand our business and customer demographics. We use Tableau Desktop to track our team’s progress. Real-time analyses and interactive dashboards are helpful for monitoring data. We can now create and share insights in ways we couldn’t before. It’s easy to put faith in and use these insights. Tableau Desktop can compare data from previous years with weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual comparisons. It assists businesses in identifying the best and least-sold products. However, this requires expensive licenses and skilled personnel, which small businesses cannot afford.

Pros

ClicData

  • Ease of use, I can put together a dashboard in about an hour that is used by daily.
  • Support, their support team is super helpful and always has detailed insight.
  • Connectors, they have a huge number of connectors that allow easy integration of your data sources.

Tableau Desktop

  • An excellent tool for data visualization, it presents information in an appealing visual format—an exceptional platform for storing and analyzing data in any size organization.
  • Through interactive parameters, it enables real-time interaction with the user and is easy to learn and get support from the community.
Afia Tamanna | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

ClicData

  • More widgets.
  • Sometimes it takes a while to refresh.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tableau Desktop

  • Formatting the data to work correctly in graphical presentations can be time consuming
  • Daily data extracts can run slowly depending on how much data is required and the source of the data
  • The desktop version is required for advanced functionality, editing on [the] Tableau server allows only limited features

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.

It is a good tool for creating beautiful visualizations and sharing dashboards. It does offer a variety of features and also making interactive dashboards. It is easy to learn and create custom visualizations really fast. It does offer good API connectivity to gather data. But it lacks the structure for data cleaning and processing.

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.

The Tableau Desktop's support team has been very helpful and tend to response very quickly. After all you have paid very premium price for the product and it goes to the services. This makes using the tool much easier for these who doesn't have such experience to get help quickly.

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.
Ben Warren | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tableau Desktop

Tableau hands-down wins based upon functionality, interoperability with a wide variety of enterprise-class data connections, end-user support, and quality of visualizations. Tableau Desktop offers a substantially more robust, refined, and mature product. It became quickly apparent that there was no real comparison. For applications that need fast, accurate analytics using a wide portfolio of underlying data sources, Tableau Desktop is the clear winner.

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.

Return on Investment

ClicData

  • ClicData was by far the most reasonable cost-wise, and we were able to get ROI within just minutes of using it.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tableau Desktop

  • Tableau was acquired years ago, and has provided good value with the content created.
  • Ongoing maintenance costs for the platform, both to maintain desktop and server licensing has made the continuing value questionable when compared to other offerings in the marketplace.
  • Users have largely been satisfied with the content, but not with the overall performance. This is due to a combination of factors including the performance of the Tableau engines as well as development deficiencies.
