Tableau is a wonderful tool for exploratory data manipulation. It has a learning curve but once you understand its view of the world, many things fall into place. Lot's of flexibility -- you'll never want to go back to Excel alone. The storytelling feature could use a bit more polish in its choice of defaults. You can end up with a great final result but it takes a while to get there.

Pros

  • Drag and drop options for charts. Providing different chart type options is excellent.
  • Export and import of the zip is also a very good feature.
  • User profile attributes for providing security permissions for data
  • Giving permissions to the user level for folders and reports.
Suresh Mende profile photo
  • the quality of its graphic tools.
  • the intuitive and easy in the elaboration of database queries.
Arlex Guzman profile photo

Cons

  • Performance on some of the way adhoc domains work. So for example, we have to set the default aggregation on all fields to NONE otherwise it calculates them ahead of time, causing delays. This is mostly because of the size of data we are dealing with. Having to set that default to NONE means we need more educated users to use the tool. Not a show stopper, but could be better.
  • We purchased JaspersoftETL. Just don't bother. There is no TIBCO support for that product and after this experience, I wouldn't recommend the underlying product at all.

  • I think Tableau should improve interoperability with document editors such as ms word.
  • Support in multiple languages is necessary.

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've never had an outage of the software itself. If it was unavailable, it was due to a network outage, not a problem with Jasper.

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.

Performance

Never have we had a performance issue with it. The "slow" reports are due to the speed of the data being returned from the database, not Jasper.

It performs as well as could be expected; the challenge is making sure the data is organized correctly to optimize performance.

We have been several times in the need of support from Tibco, mostly to setup and fine tune the production environment, and every time their support was always willing to help. Whenever the issue was complex, and eventually due to customizations done by us at their software, we can anytime reach to our Customer Success Manager, who is available to enter and contribute into our internal discussions with all our teams, so to be involved in our product implementation roadmap, and connecting back to Tibco support team, to provide clarity on our needs and deadlines. The result is our requests get resolved brilliantly.

The email and call support is exceptional; although I have had few problems, they are usually solved within an hour. In addition, Tableau has developed a large and knowledgeable community of users who help each other, and I find them to be among the best spokespeople for the software.

It did the job of getting us to our deadline we set for ourselves for initial launch. The customer we launched the product for was also there to learn about it at the same in order to better understand the capabilities. This helped greatly so that the customer was on the same page on what was possible when using jaspersoft. I think most people would not want their customers aware the product they are using is third-party but in this case it was a new experience for us both and so as we learned more about jaspersoft, we both had better communication on what the future road map was for their business needs in BI.

Resources available in the TIBCO Knowledge Base are covering almost everything. They are well organized, and covering almost every possibility. There is always the change to get back to the TIBCO support or to the dedicated Customer Success Manager whenever something very specific or bound to a customization is not covered.

Super easy to install and/or upgrade! For all the big name software out there that does some business critical things, Jasper is a pleasure to install and/or upgrade. The bundled installer is all ONE install (one shell script execution at least) that sets up everything. Vastly superior to most other software of this caliber.

There is a Server installation training video on Tableau's website. I highly recommend that everyone watch it. It only takes a few minutes and could save you quite a bit of time.

Alternatives Considered

Selected Jaspersoft because of it's open source credentials and value for money. Our requirements did not require top of the range MI or analytics, just a basic MI platform
John Stevenson profile photo
Tableau is strong at visualization but less strong at data discovery where I find Qlik Sense, SAS, SPSS are stronger.

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

  • Our use of the tool has elevated the level of interest of our customers in the way the information is being presented.
  • Our organization has an added emphasis on business intelligence and our use of Jaspersoft has allowed for us to meet these goals in a more timely manner.
  • We do encounter and occasional glitch in the product that has us needing to find a work-around in order for us to meet a defined business requirement.
Thomas Grady, CBIP profile photo
  • It is very difficult to quantify the effect that using Tableau has had on our clients. The one major benefit I can think of is the reduction of operational expenses. Tableau allows them to keep one person who maintains ten dashboards instead of the twenty people it took when they were using Excel.
  • Having a series of relevant, automatically refreshing dashboards allows for "quick response" to business problems, which could save tremendous amounts of money. If a problem is occurring, you would see it on your dashboard the next day, instead of an analyst finding it a month later.
