It doesn’t require IT talent to build. We have built more dashboards and added more users in the last year, then in our entire history. I was at a company of 30k+ employees before, and we didn't have near this level of BI adoption. As a result, we are seeing benefits across business function. For example, within sales, our pipeline has much more visibility. It allows for much faster decisions on things like quotas. One of our biggest power users is in sales ops. She feels her dashboards load 10x faster than our previous tool and she can make changes on the fly.,10,8,200,1.5,Data visualization/ reporting for multiple aspects of our operations including sales, marketing, service, procurement, finance and IT.,,,Vendor implemented,8,In-person training Self-taught,,My team holds training sessions for our internal users every month. 8-10 of our staff attend each month.

We do not integrate directly to operational systems, e.g. for finance, CRM, but push data from those enterprise apps into a data layer, so that we're not taxing those operational systems with queries. We have also built a star schema data mart for the cloud.,,Make sure you do a bake-off to compare Tableau and other best in class systems like Microsoft, PowerPivot. Really understand their license modeling as it’s changed. They didn’t have enterprise licensing model when they started. You really need to think about the taxonomy of your users. For example, power user licenses are different from end-user. You also need to understand concurrency.

QlikView Review: "Powerful and versatile - but some drawbacks for wide-scale deployment to intermittent users"

  • Handles complex data sources and compound visualizations well.
  • Very helpful to have built-in ETL capabilities to support combining data from various sources that may not be totally consistent (different account code formats can be transformed as part of the data load).
  • Associative data modeling helps to guide the user through the data. Irrelevant parameters are greyed out, meaning no "dead ends" for users in the data navigation.
  • Distributing reports/dashboards regularly is not so elegant.
  • Don't have fine granular control over some visual elements, e.g. font size in a dashboard with multiple charts combined together.
Be aware of the licensing model - it can quickly become expensive/ cumbersome if deploying to a large group of casual users.
