Overall Satisfaction

  • Connects to any data source.
  • Simplifies trending for the non-data analyst.
  • Cost effective.
  • Very easy to implement and start using.
  • Does not integrate back to other systems - less of a concern since this system is downstream for analysis.
  • Report archiving can be confusing for the less experienced users.
  • Utilizing images for charting can be confusing as well.
  • Reduced cycle times to centralize data.
  • Reduced cycle times to trend and generally analyze data.
  • Reduce error through version controls.
Renewal costs are very reasonable for the ROI.
I would recommend 'practicing' with your data while utilizing Tableau tips. This software will far exceed your initial expectations. I continue to learn and utilize a personal version.

Product Usage
