    Nintex Process Platform

    UI is generally excellent. We can incorporate outsider apparatuses like 365. As I mentioned before it's solid with robotizing and enhancing business cycles and work processes. All manual and tedious work processes are wiped out thus no requirement for a human hand. It might be a handful if you have it in your inventory.

    Tableau Server

    Tableau Server is well suited for a data warehouse build and handling big data. Tableau data aggregation, transformation, clustering capability is powerful and easy to implement. The choice of charts and visualisation tools is outstanding. Customisation and dynamic data visualisation capability is superb. The user interface takes some time getting used to.

    Pros

    Nintex Process Platform

    • Process mapping and designing of models, which perfectly issues an outline for swift actions.
    • Constant issuance of standard report, a formal way that improves the processes that enhance fruitful operations.
    • Automation of several actions, more so those with routine requirements and daily commitments.
    Joel Elliot | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Tableau Server

    • It's good at doing what it is designed for: accessing visualizations without having to download and open a workbook in Tableau Desktop. The latter would be a very inefficient method for sharing our metrics, so I am glad that we have Tableau Server to serve this function.
    • Publishing to Tableau Server is quick and easy. Just a few clicks from Tableau Desktop and a few seconds of publishing through an average speed network, and the new visualizations are live!
    • Seeing details on who has viewed the visualization and when. This is something particularly useful to me for trying to drive adoption of some new pages, so I really appreciate the granularity provided in Tableau Server

    Cons

    Nintex Process Platform

    • Nintex Process Platform is an overwhelming platform for staff unfamiliar with IT, for this reason only the IT team is in charge of using this tool.
    • Cloud costs can be very high.
    • Better training for users unfamiliar with IT can go a long way toward expanding the use of Nintex Process Platform.
    Rachael Clarinda Donald Wilson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Tableau Server

    • Tableau Server has had some issue handling some of our larger data sets. Our extract refreshes fail intermittently with no obvious error that we can fix
    • Tableau Server has been hard to work with before they launched their new Rest API, which is also a little tricky to work with

    We are currently investigating which collaboration platform best suits our needs. Chances are that we move to SharePoint Online and then we're going to also consider the microsoft power platform (power automate and power apps) to develop forms and workflows. Aspecially the pricing model for the cloud is currently a blocking factor to go for the Nintex solution in the Cloud.

    Nintex Process Platform 8.1
    Based on 13 answers
    Based on the on-prem experience with this tool, I believe that they have a lot of potential to help the online version catch up to where the on-prem left off. Nintex developed their online version and it is not as fully formed or capable compared to the on-prem version, and the licensing model scales back what we would have liked to be an expansion or at least continuous improvement of existing flows. It is also not near as user friendly specifically to non-developers and has an uncanny similarity to Microsoft Flow in the online instance. Consistent with my reviews of the tool - I believe they have some good approaches to design thinking that, if translated well from on-prem to online, could make this a clear winner again.

    Tableau Server is unbeatable at creating easy to use, interactive dashboards for busy executives. The software also saves time for the busy analyst that is tired of always using Excel. Tableau Server is a head and shoulders improvement over Excel.

    The Nintex Process Platform has never crashed or had any availability issues during my usage. However there was an issue that was of my own making that caused a slowdown of the system. I had set up a process to run once a day and check for employees on a list that had certain parameters selected, and for some reason that I had to troubleshoot, the process instead ran constantly, which filled the cache quickly. I ended up having to dismantle that process so the system didn't crash.

    Unlike any other process automation product out there.

    While there are definitely cases where a user can do things that will make a particular worksheet or dashboard run slowly, overall the performance is extremely fast. The user experience of exploratory analysis particularly shines, there's nothing out there with the polish of Tableau.

    We have consistently had highly satisfactory results every time we've reached out for help. Our contractor, used for Tableau server maintenance and dashboard development is very technically skilled. When he hits a roadblock on how to do something with Tableau, the support staff have provided timely and useful guidance. He frequently compares it to Cognos and says that while Cognos has capabilities Tableau doesn't, the bottom line value for us is a no-brainer

    In our case, they hired a private third party consultant to train our dept. It was extremely boring and felt like it dragged on. Everything I learned was self taught so I was not really paying attention. But I do think that you can easily spend a week on the tool and go over every nook and cranny. We only had the consultant in for a day or two.

    Implementation was over the phone with the vendor, and did not go particularly well. Again, think this was our fault as our integration and IT oversight was poor, and we made errors. Would they have happened had a vendor been onsite? Not sure, probably not, but we probably wouldn't have paid for that either

    Alternatives Considered

    Nintex Process Platform

    Basically, the whole Nintex platform is a very mature platform with lots of features compared to other products such as Kissflow. It works by allowing your organisation to use their imagination and plan approach to the workflow using an analysing tool that can then be shared across different customer groups for their feedback. It also helps to build relevant workflows by the use of automation through forms, and improvise these processes through a better reporting and analytics suite.

    Today, if my shop is largely Microsoft-centric, I would be hard pressed to choose a product other than Power BI. Tableau was the visualization leader for years, but Microsoft has caught up with them in many areas, and surpassed them in some. Its ability to source, transform, and model data is superior to Tableau. Tableau still has the lead in some visualizations, but Power BI's rise is evidenced by its ever-increasing position in the leadership section of the Gartner Magic Quadrant.

    The scalability is really bottlenecked by the imagination of the user. I was able to make processes for my own personal usage, making my daily tasks easier. I was also able to make processes that affected hundreds of employees, making large standardization and efficiency gains. So either way, the system is used the same way, and I was the limiting factor.

    Return on Investment

    Nintex Process Platform

    • Nintex has saved the department many hours of work by allowing us to use simple forms and workflows and taking us away from spreadsheets and outdated databases.
    • Our audits used to take hours and our last audit took only 30 minutes, thanks to the tracking abilities we now have using Nintex forms.
    • Once I learned the best practices for setting up the processes, I was able to create forms & workflows that other people could update going forward so changes happen easily as things occur. An administrator is not needed, after going live.
    Debbie Watson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Tableau Server

    • Tableau does take dedicated FTE to create and analyze the data. It's too complex (and powerful) a product not to have someone dedicated to developing with it.
    • There are some significant setup for the server product.
    • Once sever setup is complete, it's largely "fire and forget" until an update is necessary. The server update process is cumbersome.
