Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Server

[It's] Used across the entire organization and for client-facing reporting. Solves the issue of centralized reporting and a-la-carte reporting using automation and predetermined data sources.
  • Centralized reporting
  • Role-based security
  • Data visualizations
  • Animated time series visualizations
  • Custom filtering
  • Easier D3 integration
  • Higher level of automation
  • Reduced resource needs through centralized reporting
  • Interactive visual reporting benefit vs. static reporting templates
We can give granular permissions, but it would be useful if it was more customizable.
Having more native connections would be useful, but the ones that currently exist are definitely useful (e.g., Amazon Redshift, etc.)
Tableau could use better collaboration and ability to call out specific areas within a dashboard. Currently, this is restricted to comments on the bottom of the dashboard page, outside the confines of the actual dashboard.
From an online training perspective, Tableau is excellent. There is also a very robust online community. The support services are also very helpful and available.
Tableau Server is extremely well-suited for centralized reporting within an organization, or for client facing reporting. There are some very useful visualizations that exist, but allowing for more advanced visualizations to be seamlessly integrated would be a huge benefit.
