Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Server

Tableau Server is used to access data and view analytics across different groups at my organization. It makes data from our data warehouse easily accessed and viewed by users.
  • Tableau Server does a good job of making data easily accessible for consumers of data and analytics.
  • Tableau Server is very easy to populate with data using extracts and storing that in the hyper data engine.
  • Tableau is very fast for viewing complicated analytics - even better when using extracts.
  • Tableau Online would be better if it used Encryption at rest and in transit - this would allow my organization to use it instead of managing our own VM in Azure with Tableau Server.
  • More color palettes would be nice for both Tableau Server and Desktop.
  • Provides easy access to data.
  • Simple design environment
  • Easy setup for Tableau Server
Azure cloud deployment allowing a secure environment with encryption at rest and in transit.
Can use AD grpups to populate Tableau Server security or create custom groups in it.
SQL Server connection works well in Azure
Easy to share collaborate on dashboards
Online training is good, support is good.
Tableau Server works well when you need to present a large dataset to consumers of the data and allow them to both use analytics and visualizations they design as well as being able to download the data into a tool like Excel where they may be more comfortable working.
