Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Server

At our firm as we started building solutions for clients from overseas, we felt the need to have better analytics for our marketing and sales departments. Previously we had a wide array of different services that were pretty much offering the same results for us. We decided to go with Tableau Server to consolidate most of that information into a single source.
  • Reporting through Tableau Server is just a matter of few clicks. Anyone with the correct user access can we the dashboards instantaneously.
  • Using dynamic filtering, users can access the relevant sections of the reports without the need for any admin re-configuration.
  • Thus far I have not seen Tableau generated reports being mobile responsive.
  • Some of the navigation required to access workbooks, folders and projects can quickly get messy.
  • So far we've gotten good value out of this data solution.
We are using the online in cloud version of the application.
We use role based authentication for access to this resource.
We have successful endpoint connections to Oracle 11g and Microsoft SQL server.
We've not had major issues with data sharing and collaboration.
They have good online resources and tutorials for help.
So far into our implementation of Tableau server for single point of data access and visualization we have seen good success. We've managed to retrieve data from different databases like Oracle and SQL server. Our next step is integrating our HR solution Workday with the Tableau Server as well.
