Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Desktop

We use Tableau Desktop as data viewer and modeler for some of our reports: the ones that need interactive data visualization and are critical to address our products' performance on the market on a daily basis, including multiple sources of information and different types of variables. The users are top brand managers and we manage the software in the projects department so no deep level of development languages are required, only basic data and reports skills.
  • Is simple to manage, and the learning curve is easy.
  • Deployment made easy and included.
  • Interaction with the data is the most powerful feature you can give to an user, and Tableu exceeds on this.
  • Multiple devices ready.
  • No need of advanced reporting skills.
  • Printed reports is not as good as other tools, but who needs this nowadays?
Tableau is so much better for data visualization and analysis than Microsoft Reporting Services, but lacks the other functionalities that are included on Microsoft BI (MBI). That's why we use MBI to extract and consolidate our data and Tableau to create some advanced reports.
Well suited for mid to high management profiles on companies, not so good for mass level deployment as license is per user and is only worth if the person have skills to understand and manipulate multiple variables and data.
