Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Online

Tableau Online is used by various departments in our company as interactive reports and dashboards which help the company make data-driven decisions as well as anomaly detection for our Dev Ops.

Pros

  • No local maintenance. This is in comparison to Tableau Server which requires local installation and maintenance. Getting upgraded to the new version of Tableau Online is automatic.
  • Most comprehensive data visualization software I've used.

Cons

  • Tableau has never been good at creating tabular workbooks like spreadsheets. This is not its selling point, but there's still a lot of people who are used to and expect this format.
  • Being able to send a non-interactive copy of a workbook to a large group of recipients (possibly people who don't have licenses) in Tableau has always required workarounds using the tableau command line tool. Hope there's a more straight-forward way of doing this.
Tableau Online is well suited for people who would rather not maintain their servers locally. Tableau, in general, is well suited for people who need graphical visualizations of their data and not just spreadsheets-like tabular reports.
