Likelihood to Recommend

Tableau Online

Tableau Online is appropriate for companies that want a scaleable and user friendly data visualization software and are willing to invest in this area given the price of the solution. It's not appropriate for scrappy companies who are looking to trim costs.

Pros

  • What I love about Tableau is that I can filter items by SKU performance. We have tons of items that feature different colors and designs and I am able to see which option is selling the best and provide that information to our buying team.
  • Being able to see the currently available units, excess and inventory projections has saved me the time when it comes to picking which item I should feature when I am merchandising.
  • There are many filtering options within the tool so it is easy to personalize data and export results that you need.

Alternatives Considered

Birst seems very good at getting data aggregated into the tool (ETL), but weaker at the front end visualizations.
