Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Desktop
Tableau is used for data reporting and dashboard creations. Since we have a huge amount of data stored in SQL servers it is really hard to use excel for data reports creation. Thus we use Tableau for the generation of reports directly from the SQL database. We use it across various departments such as sales, finance, and Production for KPI monitoring Project cost monitoring, etc.
- Man Hours are saved in manually creating the reports.
- The scheduler helps to automatically refresh reports.
- Easily KPIs can be monitored for various business units which have overall improved the efficiency of the business teams.
