    Without the need for technical subject matter expertise or in-depth technical knowledge, Datameer has enabled me to swiftly convert data and develop insights utilizing data from a variety of sources. Datameer is an ETL software that may be used with little to no knowledge of programming. Users with no technical background may construct transformations and sophisticated SQL logics with a few mouse clicks using the intuitive graphical user interface.

    Tableau Desktop is one the finest tool available in the market with such a wide range of capabilities in its suite that makes it easy to generate insights. Further, if optimally designed, then its reports are fairly simple to understand, yet capable enough to make changes at the required levels. One can create a variety of visualizations as required by the business or the clients. The data pipelines in the backend are very robust. The tableau desktop also provides options to develop the reports in developer mode, which is one of the finest features to embed and execute even the most complex possible logic. It's easier to operate, simple to navigate, and fluent to understand by the users.

    Cons

    Datameer

    • Datameer does not have drill down capabilities on their infographics. This capability is will be supported by the end of Q1.
    • Datameer can be buggy if the version is not supported by the distribution of Hadoop being used.
    • Datameer does not make it simple to create samples of data sets.

    • 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

    We have already renewed our Datameer license for year number 2. They have come a long way since their initial release and I am expecting them to be a top BI tool in the coming year. The tool was built by one of the original creators of Hadoop. Therefore fits on top of a Hadoop cluster like a glove

    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.

    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

    I have never really used support much, to be honest. I think the support is not as user-friendly to search and use it. I did have an encounter with them once and it required a bit of going back and forth for licensing before reaching a resolution. They did solve my issue though

    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

    Datameer

    Based on our findings, we are unable to utilize the Apache Hive platform due to the associated costs. We also looked into Informatica, but decided against it because of its expensive pricing and poor integration with other BI products. Those unfamiliar with SQL may nevertheless use this tool to build complex transformation processes after a brief onboarding session.

    Tableau

    If we do not have legacy tools which have already been set up, I would switch the visualization method to open source software via PyCharm, Atom, and Visual Studio IDE. These IDEs cannot directly help you to visualize the data but you can use many python packages to do so through these IDEs.

    Scalability

    Datameer

    No answers on this topic

    Tableau

    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.

    • Speed of data transformations.
    • Pulling data from various sources.
    • Easy to schedule data pipelines.
    • Tailor made for Snowflake and Redshift.
    • Documentation is sometimes not updated quickly.

    Tableau

    • 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.
