"Tableau: A powerful business intelligence tool as well as best Visualization tool"

What do you like best?

The first and foremost thing I like in Tableau is Ease of Use.

Secondly, Tableau is known for its Visualizations. It provides great visualizations and no other BI tool can compete with Tableau in Visualizations.

Tableau is also known for better performance and has multiple data source connections

Tableau also provides a one-year free trial for students and it also provides videos and whitepapers etc,

Students can easily access those videos and website and can learn Tableau

We can find everything in Tableau official site.

Tableau provides Live connections to different data sources

What do you dislike?

I don't have many reasons to dislike Tableau. In fact, I would suggest Tableau compared to other BI tools but one thing I feel that the cost is a little high compared to other BI tools

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend Tableau compared with other BI Tools. Because of the Ease of use, High Performance

Great visualizations and what else required

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easily can connect with different and multiple data sources.

Provides great Visualizations.

Tableau can handle millions of rows of data with ease

With the help of the Tableau Community, we can interact with skilled experts or Tableau developers and one can ask for help and clarify doubts.

Different types of visualizations can be created with a large amount of data without affecting the performance.

Tableau provides different tools or platforms like Tableau (Desktop, Server, Online, Public, Reader, Prep, and Public etc for a different type of users

"Top of the line data visualizations backed by Salesforce!"

What do you like best?

The ability to work with both live data through a connector or using a data extraction is a huge plus for us since some of our data used legacy data connections like ODBC that have no online access. The software is also extremely easy to setup and use whether you're using just the Desktop version or also incorporating the Server client! They are just got bought out by Salesforce so have confidence choosing Tableau

What do you dislike?

The pricing structure can be confusing as well as the dashboard setup if you're wanting to host your dashboards locally yourself or through a VPS.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our traditional method of reporting was mainly through Excel, but now with the added visualizations and ability to host live dashboards in the cloud that update automatically we now have even greater visibility into business metrics that we were desperate for!

"Tableau The best way to analyze and present your data."

What do you like best?

What I like the most is to be able to relate different databases in order to obtain important information for the work, it is easy to perform in different Dashboards, which can be viewed from any mobile device and computers with a single link and in real time.

What do you dislike?

It does not work without an internet connection and sometimes it gives me an error and it does not allow me to save the changes made, perhaps for some people it is usually a bit complicated and cumbersome.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it to all companies that have a large amount of data and need to have their information organized and in real time, it is a Business Intelligence platform that helps all companies achieve their objectives and optimal results.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It can help you to join several databases, the presentations with Dashboards are wonderful and easy to understand, when making presentations with global filters the data sample is very simple, provides each user with a profile in which you can save all your publications and edit them whenever you need or require, there are a large number of tutorials and a large community which can help you solve a problem if it is presented and its cost is not very high.

"One of the best Business Intelligence Software"

What do you like best?

I like the best Interactive Dashboarding, Almost no coding required for creating visualizations. The Dashboards are ready to be used on mobiles which reduces the development efforts. It is easy to be used by the end users with simple drag drop functionality to create reports and visualizations.

What do you dislike?

Simple thing like cross join is difficult to implement. For that we need to write our own query. Connection mapping i.e. connecting to different data sources at run time is difficult to implement.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely I would like to recommend Tableau to other users. It is a very good tool.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are creating report and dashboards with Tableau Desktop for internal reporting as well as for our clients. Clients are very satisfies with the tool.It saves a lot of time creating reports. Users can do self BI with tableau, which saves a lot of business time.

"Great analytics platform, even better visualiations"

What do you like best?

I quite like Tableau, as it has many options how I can analyse data and then how I can visualize it. Works with many data sources and has many reporting options.

What do you dislike?

It does not handle too large dataset very well, and sometimes the processing power is not the best.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great tool if you want amazing visualization options. It does the analytic job well, but there are other tools out there that can do the same with other better features.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
