If you are connecting to Snowflake and want to query from your laptop, I find that this is much easier to use than Snowflake's IDE. It allows us as a business intelligence team to more easily connect to our servers, and code with much less hassle. It would be less appropriate if you are only on an on-premises SQL server, in that case, I would just use SSMS.

We combine data from various data sets. Most of my files are in flat files and stored by various teams. The data is added daily so we need a fast way to analyze it. Furthermore, we incorporate external data such as statistics Canada and economics. For these, [Tableau Desktop] needs to be responsive. I then use it to analyze the information. Also, the data is visualized by various teams and presented to executives.

Pros

  • Data import/export and SQL Script generation are quick and simple to do.
  • Fairly intuitive when viewing/editing table data.
  • Ability to save SQL scripts per server and recall them easily.
  • Handy intelligence when writing queries, functions, and stored procs.
Aaron Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tableau Desktop

  • The Visualizations graphics are really good and the color options help in designing attractive charts. They help to convey more information and can be made interactive.
  • You can add filters with offer you to plug and play with values and understand different outcomes.
  • You can drag and drop options while creating charts and dashboards. also it is a very fluid layout.

Cons

DBeaver

  • Some icons are kinda small and difficult to understand what they do
  • The spanish translation could be better
  • I think there are many functions that could be useful for me but I don't know what they do
Gustavo Du Mortier | 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.

I think it is easy to use and provides beautiful charts. It is easier to do storytelling or to give a quick overview about your work.Tableau also makes it easy to share the dashboards and manage access right to them.I would recommend Tableau as one of the best visualization tools out there.(From my point of view, Tableau is like Apple and Power BI is like Android phone).

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

Not a lot of users have DBeaver so fewer resources are available online to help you if you have any issues. When I was trying to figure out how to create my own ER diagrams, it was a little tough to find resources

Tableau support team took their own time to reach out with their solution. However, Tableau online community forums where many visitors and user are ready to lend a hand to others and share their experiences provide support and help in any issues encounter during the development phase.

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

DBeaver

MySQL workbench from MySQL only supports MySQL databases and it only provides basic functionality. On top of that, the user experience could be quite confusing for first-time users. SSMS from SQL server doesn't support inline editing nicely. The view for inline editing and view data is different, making it uncomfortable to use. All in all, DBeaver is the best tool when you manage a lot of databases with different types.

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.

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

DBeaver

  • Using a single multi-platform tool allows companies to save money not having to buy multiple products from different vendors.
  • The simplicity of use and user friendliness allows companies to spend less time and money on user training.

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.
