Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Online

Tableau Online is being leveraged by about 30% of the organizations across the company. It's primarily used today as a scalable and dynamic data visualization tool for complex data sets. By leveraging this software business analysts spend less time preparing graphs and charts and more time on thoughtful and impactful analysis. This can lead to better and more informed decision making across your company!
  • Software is compatible with numerous interfaces, making it quite scalable.
  • Robust visualization feature set -- perhaps even industry leading.
  • Graphs are dynamic and intuitive to use which helps organizations focus on what really matters -- making the right decision at the right time.
  • Intuitive user interface helps analysts quickly setup scalable reports.
  • More robust feature set -- its primarily a data visualization tool...hence you need other software to populate it.
  • More competitive pricing model -- the desktop / creator license can get expense fast so you need to be cautious of who has this user type.
  • Further ability to customize the application to fit your companies branding.
We selected Tableau Online as its the industry leader in data visualization and our Sales, IT, and Finance teams were already familiar and competent with the tool.
We are a growing tech company with lots of data sources -- from our experience Tableau is very adaptive and flexible and thus far have not run into major issues here.
Formatting and sharing capabilities are top notch -- Tableau Online definitely excels in this area. I do think there is some room for improvement in terms of security functionality. I have seen improvements on the security front but still think there is room for enhancement.
Tableau Online is appropriate for companies that want a scaleable and user friendly data visualization software and are willing to invest in this area given the price of the solution. It's not appropriate for scrappy companies who are looking to trim costs.
