GoodData

GoodData is appropriate for any organizations struggling with bridging gaps between multiple disparate data sources. Using GoodData provides those organizations all the tools necessary to build value added insights for both internal and external customers. It would be less appropriate for those wanting to build highly customizable reports features as there's not a lot of freedom in design.

We use Tableau when we want to obtain a fast and efficient result, since this option allows to work with data in real time or in memory, being able to extract massive data for a limited exploration quickly, using technology of database and computational graphics to analyze enormous sets of data and which is used in the different areas of the organization when we want to have quick results and easy to analyze according to the graphics presented.

GoodData is a great partner of Zendesk and I will continue to use both for as long as I can see into the future :)

Tableau just keeps getting better with time, and continues to add new features with each new release. My clients love the wide variety of data representations, and it has become an invaluable tool in providing high quality products that satisfy customer needs. Tableau makes my job easier, more efficient and more effective.

Usability

Based on 1 answer
Each graph/report is defined on the dashboard, which makes it easier to understand what you're analyzing. Another simple example - we changed the standard metric of Region by User to our Region by Account in less than 10 minutes

It's pretty easy to use Tableau...you need to have your data formatted properly before you try. Since the majority of calculations are written almost exactly as you would in Excel, the learning curve is quite shallow

Reliability and Availability

We are approximately one month since go-live. There has been one short outage.

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.

Time needs to be spent ahead of implementation to make sure data sources are set up and ready. Consultants need to understand the data sources and the goals before setting foot on-site. Installation is easy, learning to use it takes time. The training resources available are great.

Breadth of Deployment

Everyone uses GoodData on my team and in our company as we support our customers to use it as well

The department I worked in had around 30 people. I believe we had at least 15 licenses possibly more.

Alternatives Considered

We also looked at Tableau and ultimately decided to go with them instead of GoodData because their performance was considerably better, we liked the mapping feature which GoodData did not offer, and the calculated fields were also easier to create and process.

Tableau Desktop is less complex and has a better array of visualizations.

Collaboration and Sharing

GoodData8.0
Based on 12 answers
Sharing and access controls are very powerful. My only complaint is that it is not possible to filter the available metrics by user group. This overwhelms many of our non technical users due to the large amount of metrics.

It is easy to share but it mostly works with simple static reports, without much data calculation and manipulation or filtering.

Across technologies, it will seamlessly connect to data, allow joining, blending, aggregation, and custom SQL. The VizQL is a very fast and robust proprietor algorithm that enables Tableau Desktop to work fast with any data type.

Although tableau is highly interactive and fast but with very large dataset its performance degrades heavily. So up to certain extent its really good but after that we have to take care of its performance issues.

Return on Investment

  • We gained better insight into our lead nurturing programs with much less effort. The data is presented in a clean and simple way that allows us to quickly view our main data points that drive business decisions.
  • Not only did it increase our employee efficiency, but it allowed us to provide better customer service to our clients. Having readily available data allowed us to pull reports for our clients within minutes.
Katie Bullinger profile photo
  • Tableau has provided my clients with the information necessary to allocate multi-million dollar research budgets effectively, ensuring the company is getting the most bang for its buck.
  • Tableau has given my office the ability to present data quickly and easily in a professional format that customers can understand, and has them returning frequently for additional analysis and projects.
