True software with all the BI and Data Visualization tools

Role: President at EBI Management Group

The current clients of EBI Management Group include Department of Defense (DoD), Veterans Affairs (VA), and Department of Transportation (DoT). Some clients utilize high-end Business Intelligence Tools (like Cognos Analytics) and some still use MS Excel Spreadsheets. We have started introducing the Excel clients to Tableau, as a way to expand their Data Visualization capabilities. We introduced it last year on a VA project and are currently introducing it to one of our DoT client project teams. It has gone really well, so our overall rating has been a 5. 

Pros include the affordable price point for getting started as a project team and the learning curve is also fairly quick compared to other tools we have used for client delivery.  Our team hasn’t encountered many Cons, but there is a longer learning curve for more advanced data visualizations. That is true with all the BI and Data Visualization tools, however.

The solution where there are multiple useful functions

Role: Marketing Intern at Targetprocess, Inc.

A very powerful, affordable and easy to implement/adopt data mining tool. Very recommendable!All the elements needed for data mining and creation of reports that actually create intelligence in the business. Ability to slice all elements under a very easy to use interface (if you've used Excel's pivots, then you can use Tableau). Exporting ability and running is done in the background hence freeing the end-user.

Visualization at its best
Reviewed 8 months ago by Code Inspiration

Anyone will be able to make Pretty visualization without much prior experience and can decipher stories underneath data. It was really easy for me to pick up the tool and get on the speed. Great for visualizations but if you want a BI Tool for numeric/tabular reports especially for financial reports - you should probably consider some other tool. With that being said, it is totally worth the money for all other BI needs and seriously the best BI Tool available! 

Visualization of data on Tableau is very customizable
Reviewed 6 months ago by Jenna Erickson
Role: Marketing Manager at Codal

As a Marketing Manager of Codal, I share that using Tableau is very seamless and easy to create a customized dashboard, which is important for me as and probably most marketers. For a SaaS platform, Tableau probably has some of the best data visualizations I have seen on a SaaS platform. On top of being very interactive and customizable, the user interface is really intuitive, so there really was not a large learning curve at all.

Another huge pro was that they have a very robust mobile application that also has an intuitive UI. Always being on-the-go, mobile friendliness is another crucial aspect of any type of software.

The only con that I saw and the only reason I didn’t give it a 5 out of 5 is because I was looking to use the professional edition, which can definitely become a little pricey if you connect all of your data sources and onboard a lot of users.
