Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Server

  • Simple and elegant analytics.
  • Speed to value.
  • Scalability – ability to start with a Desktop dashboard and seamlessly move to a server version when ready.
  • Ability to do simple calculations.
  • Ability to investigate and clean data sets quickly and easily.
  • Dynamic data connection options.
  • Unable to write information back to a database (example: what if analysis engine).
  • Difficult to perform complex table calculations.
  • Challenging to join different tables or views and perform meaningful calculations.
We host several solutions utilizing Tableau Server being consumed by several global teams.
  • Speed to value. We were able to move rapidly from a proof-of-concept on the desktop version to the server version based on the excellent results we saw very early on.
