Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Server

Tableau Server has resolved operations department needs for

  1. More efficient and timely delivery of operations performance to frontline supervisors, managers, business analysts, Steering and C-suite
  2. Increased accountability of operations KPIs
  3. Clear "signal" delivery for routine prioritizing, project tracking and alerting
  4. Increased literacy for data-driven process improvement. The tool also provides intuitive and interactive self-service BI for business development tactics and strategy.

Pros

  • Auto refresh setup is a few clicks, and default selections make routine updates to dashboard development a breeze.
  • Intuitive, rapid development of visuals for all stages of business analysis; easy to learn, teach and realize RoI of purchase in 3-6 months.
  • Robust visual recommendations result in responsive, high impact deliverables to meet ad-hoc requests.
  • Highly customizable actions and filters for high interactivity and rapid end user adoption from anywhere business needs to get done.

Cons

  • Pop-up tips for new viewers regarding features like subscriptions, alerts, etc to encourage engagement.
  • Deployment cost is low and rapid
  • Report generation capacity exponentially increased
  • Rise in data-informed decisions
Well suited for decentralized data ownership culture where data-driven decision-making is highly valued. Perfect for busy senior managers with "power user" and/or business analytics chops to drive their own insights at the speed of dynamic shifts in priorities.

Not well suited for heavy real-time queries against transactional data without extensive reporting infrastructure and architecture.
