Exceptional Examples of Tableau Desktop Support

I found a particularly great visualization on the public forum. Turns out it was created by a staff member. I wasn't sure how it was put together so I sent a quick note and was blessed with the complete files with an overview of how it was constructed and an offer to tease out the details where needed. Clearly above and beyond.

Exceptional Examples of Tableau Desktop Support

When I renewed my subscription, I mentioned a few features that I would like to see in future Tableau releases. A few hours later, he had emailed me links on how to accomplish my desires in the current version. It might not be the easiest solution, but it is available. He has also passed my request on to the programmers, and it will be potentially included and made simpler in a future version of the product.

During a recent Tableau User day we got treated to a preview of Tableau 10. It had just been released but the guys were able to demonstrate it live and to answer any questions we had to ask. Those at the user day were extremely flexible and knowledgeable and it made for a good interaction.

Product buy- My product buy cycle was as long as 2 years with so much analysis comparison and discussion done by the stakeholders one the worth of another BI spending. Tableau sales executive was patient and responsive enough to every nerdy question they were asked

We ran into an issue with the Oracle driver for 64 Bit server when setting up the connection to our Oracle database, and when posted a question to the support they were able to provide the immediate reply with the correct driver to use.

About Tableau Desktop

Tableau Desktop aims to allow people to make data-driven decisions with confidence, by helping them answer questions more quickly, solve harder problems more easily, and uncover new insights more frequently.

The vendor says that with a couple of clicks, Tableau Desktop connects directly to hundreds of data sources, both on-premises or in the cloud, with the goal of making it easier to start analysis. Interactive dashboards, drag and drop functionality, and natural language queries help users of all skill levels quickly discover actionable insights, all from an intuitive and visual interface. Users can ask deeper questions by quickly building powerful calculations, adding trend lines and seeing statistical summaries, or clustering data to see relationships.

Tableau's goal is to help people and organizations become more data-driven. With an integrated platform that is strives to be easy to start and scale, Tableau aims to support the entire analytics journey, from data preparation, to deep analysis, to the shared insights that drive the business forward.
