It's most appropriate when properly set up by someone with a deep knowledge of PNL/Forecasting. It's inappropriate for companies with poorly structured/inconsistently maintained financial statements.

Tableau Online

Tableau is very well suited for large organizations because of its cost. It has a great visual design. It is particularly useful when there is data integration with other software required. Dashboards come out very well in such cases and help make sense out of data. These dashboards are used on a frequent basis once a baseline or a parameter is defined. Trend analysis and forecasting are a key to using this software and this is where it comes in very handy.

Pros

Tableau Online

  • Software is compatible with numerous interfaces, making it quite scalable.
  • Robust visualization feature set -- perhaps even industry leading.
  • Graphs are dynamic and intuitive to use which helps organizations focus on what really matters -- making the right decision at the right time.
  • Intuitive user interface helps analysts quickly setup scalable reports.

Cons

LivePlan

  • UX: It's beyond time for an overhaul, especially on mobile. It can make the app seem dated.
  • The accounting software integration has been prone to break and need to be re-setup, though that seems to have improved.
Jason Ogden, President | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tableau Online

  • I'm not sure if this is standard for everyone but our Tableau is updated twice a week so the information may not be the most up-to-date possible.
  • There's no search function in the tool which would help me a lot if I am seeking information about a specific item.
  • There are frequent software updates which require you to completely reinstall everything.

Alternatives Considered

LivePlan

We did not really find a similar solution. All other solutions are focused on project management, [there's] nothing on generating a business plan. There is nothing on this level that helps people without any business experience write the plan. They have samples, instructions what to write where, how to prepare for pitching, and generate dashboards. Nothing in this market gets anywhere close to this solution.

Both Tableau Online and BI solutions provide visualizations. In Power BI we choose the visualization first, then drag the data into it. In Tableau, we select the data and switch between visualizations on the fly. It’s easier to jump between visualizations in Tableau. Power BI might be sluggish when working with extremely large datasets whereas Tableau online has an advantage in this area due to its extensive features.Power BI doesn’t have the ability to publish reports with all associated data which means some information can be left out of visualizations whereas Tableau online has a steep learning curve and flexible features.

Return on Investment

LivePlan

  • For the price, it's worth it for 2 main reasons. Knowing what's going on throughout the year (relative to goals/prior periods), and seeing precisely where financial issues are off track.
