Tableau Server is well suited for a data warehouse build and handling big data. Tableau data aggregation, transformation, clustering capability is powerful and easy to implement. The choice of charts and visualisation tools is outstanding. Customisation and dynamic data visualisation capability is superb. The user interface takes some time getting used to.
Read full review Pros Excellent management capabilities via Cloudera Manager. Open source and does not restrict our data to be bound by a proprietary format. Offers excellent support for data governance and auditing. Has all the components that would help us build a data hub. Excellent platform support offered by Cloudera. Read full review It's good at doing what it is designed for: accessing visualizations without having to download and open a workbook in Tableau Desktop. The latter would be a very inefficient method for sharing our metrics, so I am glad that we have Tableau Server to serve this function. Publishing to Tableau Server is quick and easy. Just a few clicks from Tableau Desktop and a few seconds of publishing through an average speed network, and the new visualizations are live! Seeing details on who has viewed the visualization and when. This is something particularly useful to me for trying to drive adoption of some new pages, so I really appreciate the granularity provided in Tableau Server Read full review Cons Not fully Open Source, couple of components of the distributions are privately owned, meaning with public contributions are not welcome Improvements to Cloudera manager can only be recommended. its very hard to get it done once recommended as the full control is with them. Should make components more aligned to Open Source rather than making it closed sourced. Custom Features of open source software tools supported only by Cloudera are tricky. Cant commit changes to tools like Hue. Improvements to Cluster Management tool is required, which are already available to its competitors. Read full review Tableau Server has had some issue handling some of our larger data sets. Our extract refreshes fail intermittently with no obvious error that we can fix Tableau Server has been hard to work with before they launched their new Rest API, which is also a little tricky to work with Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Likely to renew the use in case the requirements for Cloudera remain valid. The rapid change in customer requirements and solutions that must be validated, integrated or tested changes. As the maturity of the solution increases, the requirements to renew use decrease. From a solution feature perspective by itself would probably grade 10.

It simply is used all the time by more and more people. Migrating to something else would involve lots of work and lots of training. The renewal fee being fair, it simply isn't worth migrating to a different tool for now.

Tableau Server is unbeatable at creating easy to use, interactive dashboards for busy executives. The software also saves time for the busy analyst that is tired of always using Excel. Tableau Server is a head and shoulders improvement over Excel.
Read full review Reliability and Availability
Our instance of Tableau Server was hosted on premises (I believe all instances are) so if there were any outages it was normally due to scheduled maintenance on our end. If the Tableau server ever went down, a quick restart solved most issues
Read full review Performance
While there are definitely cases where a user can do things that will make a particular worksheet or dashboard run slowly, overall the performance is extremely fast. The user experience of exploratory analysis particularly shines, there's nothing out there with the polish of Tableau.

We have consistently had highly satisfactory results every time we've reached out for help. Our contractor, used for Tableau server maintenance and dashboard development is very technically skilled. When he hits a roadblock on how to do something with Tableau, the support staff have provided timely and useful guidance. He frequently compares it to Cognos and says that while Cognos has capabilities Tableau doesn't, the bottom line value for us is a no-brainer

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 website is full of videos that you can follow at your own pace. As a very small company with a Tableau install, access to these free resources was incredibly useful to allowing me to implement Tableau to its potential in a reasonable and proportionate manner.
Read full review Implementation Rating
Implementation was over the phone with the vendor, and did not go particularly well. Again, think this was our fault as our integration and IT oversight was poor, and we made errors. Would they have happened had a vendor been onsite? Not sure, probably not, but we probably wouldn't have paid for that either

compatible with Windows operating systems, and Mac allows cloud-based deployment, it is also very useful to configure data encryption, guarantee protocols, and security policies. It also provides integrated auditing and monitoring capabilities, as well as a control comprehensive data repository for the enterprise, and ensures vendor compatibility through its open-source architecture.

Today, if my shop is largely Microsoft-centric, I would be hard pressed to choose a product other than Power BI. Tableau was the visualization leader for years, but Microsoft has caught up with them in many areas, and surpassed them in some. Its ability to source, transform, and model data is superior to Tableau. Tableau still has the lead in some visualizations, but Power BI's rise is evidenced by its ever-increasing position in the leadership section of the Gartner Magic Quadrant.
Read full review Return on Investment Cloudera products are the most widely. It is more business friendly as data is more secure. The sensitive data that you operate on is local to you and your project rather than processing this data on Cloud. Cloudera is definitely faster as wait time is reduced if on Cloud. A lot range of products are covered. So it is definitely good for businesses and had good returns on investments. Read full review Tableau does take dedicated FTE to create and analyze the data. It's too complex (and powerful) a product not to have someone dedicated to developing with it. There are some significant setup for the server product. Once sever setup is complete, it's largely "fire and forget" until an update is necessary. The server update process is cumbersome. Read full review ScreenShots Tableau Server Screenshots
