Pros

I love that the tool is so easy to use and it turns data into a manageable and easy to digest appearance. It manages to make data fun to look at, and it's really easy to work with.
I also like the fact that the company is always striving to improve their software as it shows dedication to the field. With every update I find that the new features help with my job quite a lot.
Linking existing databases works like a charm. It has a plethora of data visualization methods which is extremely professional and helpful for users to gain valuable insights.

Pros

Ease of use with easy change of languages and the UI is just awesome with frontal access to all the necessities.
It is easy to use with great UI. I love how easy and quick it is to access data and generate analysis with attracting graphic and charts.
The tool has great features like the planning menu and the easy of use interface. It's a complete tool for Business Intelligence and analytics, with beautiful views and charts.

Cons

I'll say that it was really frustrating to use in the beginning, it is complex and if you've never been in it before it is overwhelming.
Due to my lack of familiarity in how to code, I was uncomfortable at first and found it difficult to learn.
What is even more annoying is that it also takes several minutes to cancel a query. I really don't understand how it can take that long just to cancel a query.

Cons

All my accounting problems have been solved by this. Chances of Fraud have been reduced as all my work is being done on cloud.
When using so much product data, it can take a while to load at times which can be frustrating at times.
The updates don't always work well and we have to call and have problems fixed as an update rolls out.

Premium Choice for Data Analytics

Reviewed 2 years ago

Tableau is a data visualization software that translates raw data into valuable and meaningful insights. It assists businesses in collecting and interpreting data from various sources such as spreadsheets, cloud apps like Google Analytics and Salesforce.

Pros

What I love about this is that I can build interactive dashboards through individual reports/worksheets. This platform can really handle large amount of data and complex statistical analysis with ease and gives cohesive results.

Cons

I didn’t quite like that there are some limitations to email alert. For example, you can only drag the date range option instead of selecting dates. It’s time consuming. It also takes a while to import data.

Tableau

A flexible and powerful tool

Reviewed 6 years ago

I am an analytics consultant and used to work mostly with SAP BW (Business Objects, Business Explorer, etc), Lumira, and Qlik Sense. My first contact with Tableau was very good, I've learned many things in a few days, it's very easy to use and also very powerful. I'm happy in working with this project because Tableau makes my experience much better, I'm liking it.

Pros

The easiness on creating simple reports don't obfuscate its power on creating complex dashboards. If you want to create a simple bar graph that shows your sales amount, you can do it easily and quickly, but it doesn't take out the tools and mechanisms that allows advanced users and consultants to do more, like creating complex non-existent (not ready-available in the tool, but possible) charts like exploded bar charts. It supports formulas and also have a very good engine for it, as you can define one and reference it by its name wherever you need. As an analytics consultant, I've seen many other reporting tools, like Qlik View (and Sense), Power BI, SAP Lumira and so on, so I can tell that Tableau is a major competitor in segment.

Cons

A common problem that takes place inside large companies lies on the difference between how we think Tableau looks for data and how it actually does. At one of the cases we have SAP Hana as a database with its views as data source and Tableau as the reporting tool. Some of our dashboards have been stated as "slow", but we figured out that the problem was not on the columns that was available and being...

There is very little that I could do with our old solution that can't be done with Tableau as well. Tableau has better display capability than our old solution. We are very satisfied with them!

Pros

Our company is very satisfied with Tableau. We love the data visualizations that we are able to produce, and we are constantly upgrading our visuals as we learn new things to do with Tableau. And there are a lot of things to do with Tableau!

Can't live without Tableau when it comes to BI

Reviewed 6 years ago

Meeting the demands for business analytics and solving problems with big data.

Pros

Has some unmatched features and functionality that I have not found with other competing software. Makes some really attractive/descriptive/intuitive dashboards.

Cons

Not very easy to use if you are just getting started with using BI tools. Some minor bugs in the software that I discovered, but nothing worth specifically mentioning.
