Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Server

It is used in a single product using the in-line version in a web application. It is a huge selling point to the application suite as it allows the users to see the effectiveness of using the application. The visualizations are powerful.
  • Powerful visulizations that can be customized with the desktop suite.
  • Can be scheduled for emails or exported to PDF.
  • Supports many different charts graphs and has plenty of filtering options.
  • Default dates parameters do not work.
  • Not a lot of room for custom queries to the end user.
  • Desktop customization software is buggy.
  • It is a critical selling point to our tool as it shows the results from using our processes.
  • It is a little painful to maintain and customize.
  • It needs more flexibility in how you create data sets with stored procedures and temp tables.
It's embedded in our cloud based application and accessible via our ios application.
We synch from [MySQL] to a Vertica cluster via Pentaho ETL jobs. Tableau accesses the data from thVerticaca cluster.
Pretty good support forums and they are willing to look at your code and work with you over WebEx.
Quickly getting a reporting solution integrated.
