Yes - Tableau replaced SAP Business Objects is my project, this was because for interactive visualization purpose business objects was not good, so we have to go for some visualization tool and Tableau was best to be considered due to its easy to use, less training and quick setup features and obviously business requirement.

Yes - We have Microsoft SSRS in house and write a lot of ad hoc reports. Tableau will reduce the number of reports needed and the interface is so much nicer!

Yes - We had replaced Oracle's discoverer and some adhoc SQL reporting from SQL development tools.

Oracle discoverer had become outdated and did not have the functionality to publish dashboards. Users needed the ability to have dashboard capabilities to view, modify or update the worksheets on the dashboard instantly without the need for IT assistance.

Users now have the capability to view the published dashboards that were periodically synced with the latest data and had to just refresh the page to view the latest data rather than having to refresh the sheet in discoverer that usually took very long to view the data.

Used to use MS Excel for charts and graphs. MS Access for joining datasets and conducting analysis. Had the option of using QlikView but based on my past experience with Tableau and QlikView, Tableau was a more well rounded tool for analysis and visualization against multiple datasets / data types and it is a much more user friendly interface for people with varying levels of software and analysis experience. Tableau is click and drag whereas QlikView requires more knowledge of SQL.
