Genau mein Ding

5,0 vor 3 Monaten

Kommentare: Tableau bietet erstklassige Funktionen zur Datenvisualisierung und Analyse und hilft dabei, komplexe Informationen verständlich darzustellen. Benutzerfreundliche Oberfläche und vielfältige Visualisierungsoptionen machen es zu einem unverzichtbaren Werkzeug für die Optimierung von Geschäftsprozessen und die Entwicklung fundierter strategischer Entscheidungen.

Nachteile:

Die Plattform funktioniert einwandfrei. Eine Lizenzoption für den privaten Gebrauch und ein Abrechnungsmodell, das den Bedürfnissen privater Nutzer entspricht, wären eine willkommene Ergänzung.

Möglichkeit zur Live Steuerung von großen Mengen

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Die Benutzer-/ Bediener-freundlichkeit ist sehr gut, dadurch hat die Einführung nur wenige Wochen gedauert.

Vorteile:

Wir bearbeiten 8.000 Aufträge pro Monat für einen großen Telekommunikationsanbieter. Alle 15 Minuten werden meine KPI aktualisiert, sodass ich sofort erkenne wo ich eingreifen muss. Die größten Vorteile dabei sind die Geschwindigkeit und die einfache anpassung der Auswertungen.

Nachteile:

Fehlende Möglichkeiten der Visualisierung. Wir haben diverse KPIs auf verschiedenen Arbeisblättern, können diese aber nicht automatisiert durchlaufen lassen.

Sehr gutes Tool zur Datenvisualisierung

5,0 vor 3 Tagen Neu

Kommentare: Sehr gute Lösung zur Datenvisualisierung. Sehr intelligent und praktisch, aber man muss sich einarbeiten/schon grundsätzliche Erfahrung mit Datenanalyse haben.

Vorteile:

- sehr gute Visualisierung von Daten, dazu auch viel Intelligenz im Programm selbst (Umgang mit Daten-Gruppierung, Duplikaten etc.) - gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis - gute Verbindung zu den wichtigsten Tools

Nachteile:

- recht komplizierte Einarbeitung - manchmal mit der Zusammenführerung mehrerer großer Datenquellen überfordert - Manchmal einige manuelle Workarounds nötig für Sunktionen, die zB in Excel simpel zu lösen sind

sehr gute Software zur Verwaltung und Pflege aller Daten.

5,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

Es hat viele Vorteile wie Power BI, wir können Daten manipulieren, wir können visualisieren, wir können die Regressionsanalyse durchführen und vieles mehr zu Power Visualisierungen. Diese Visualisierungen und Dashboards sind sehr hilfreich für das Management, um Entscheidungen zu treffen. Die kratzigen Daten können in feine und nützliche Daten verwandelt werden.

Nachteile:

Wir benötigen lediglich eine Schulung zur Nutzung dieser Software. Für die Aktualisierung und Änderung des Dashboards ist viel manueller Aufwand erforderlich. Die Schnittstelle könnte etwas besser sein, um die Benutzerfreundlichkeit zu verbessern. Ich glaube, dass es einige Sicherheitsprobleme gibt, die geändert und die Sicherheitsbedingungen aktualisiert werden müssen, um die Software sicherer zu machen.

Data exploration on steroids.

5,0 letzten Monat Neu

Vorteile:

Its outstanding visualization capabilities, has appealed to me the most. The quality of my data visualization activity on Tableau is far superior to what I have gotten from substitute business intelligence or analytics tools. Tableau's infusion of generative AI into my data visualization and analysis experience, enables me to integrate predictive modeling into my Tableau workflow, thereby improving the quality of insights I generate from my data.

Nachteile:

Tableau comes with a steep learning curve and it is simply not for early stage data professionals. To learn to use Tableau effectively, a user must have had experience using lesser visualization platforms in the past.

I just love it.

5,0 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: It is just great. Functionality, UX. What often stays underappreciated is the Tableau community. Even though the support far from being the best one (I guess company grew too big), one can always find the answers in the community or simply share a sample workbook and others will help.

Vorteile:

I love almost everything about the Tableau. It is a pure joy to create and analyze report. The data visualization capabilities are simply the best on the market and it is so easy to use that it is just mind-blowing. One can connect Tableau workbook to almost any imaginable data source and in a matter of minutes create a great report.

Nachteile:

It is really hard to think about the cons, but if it is really necessary then Tableau Prep can be quite slow if the file tend to combine more than three sources with the number of columns exceeding a 100. Even if the number of rows is fairly small (less than 1000).

Tableau is Fantastic for Shippers

4,0 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: Overall I’ve really enjoyed the program. It puts data into visuals that we can then share with our carriers. We have the ability to use it for inside information or carrier facing information.

Vorteile:

As a shipper who is always looking for solid carriers this program provides unique visuals that we can show our carriers. A lot of carriers are used to just seeing the data in an Excel format, so having the visuals elevated their experience with us.

Nachteile:

Tableau can be a little tedious and has a less intuitive program than other systems. Once you overcome the learning curve it is a great system.

A very intuitive business intelligence tool

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I started using it while I was making my MBA and I was amazed at the easy of use and the possibility to make chart in a very powerful way beyond excel. Later on, when I was asked to do some complex representation of many parameters, Tableau has been the best and easiest option, beyond other 3 options I have tried from major sellers

Vorteile:

- Very intuitive way o assemble data, no need for programming or special commands - Easily change data from numeric to alphanumeric - The most common and useful charts are available - Easy to breakdown data into several clusters - I once plotted 6 parameters in a 2 dimensional chart: X, Y, bubble size, color, name, icon - You can build special read-only docs with the functionality to be read by Tableu Reader (as in acrobat reader) - You can customize label, axis, trend and references lines

Nachteile:

- Eventually some very specific charts are not there as chord, tornado, tree maps, nodes, gauges, alluvial diagram, dendograms - Even with all the clustering, it lacks statistical analysis as Anova, hypothesis test between two set of data, normal probability plot

A premium option at a premium price point

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall Tableau is a great BI/Visualization tool where the only limitations are what your team can do with it. The platform itself has every bell and whistle you could want and provides a ton of customization for various use cases.
The challenge arises when moving to the logistical management of the platform, specifically around access, user education and price. While it might be great for individual organizations, our use case of deploying dashboards to hundreds of clients just isn’t what Tableau was built for.
If you have the right use case and team to support it, it’s a fantastic option. But if you’re lacking in those areas (or perhaps want a tool with more automatic BI/AI capabilities), there’s likely a better option for your organization.

Vorteile:

There is a reason that Tableau is synonymous with data visualization tools to many people and organizations. It’s a premium product that can do pretty much whatever you want it to. Tableau’s features are limitless and with the proper resources to maintain and deploy it, you’ll rarely identify capabilities that it doesn’t have. It is truly a BI tool that enables your team to overcome any obstacle they face. I specifically enjoyed some of the advanced visualization capabilities of Tableau that more “basic” tools don’t offer. The time series visualizations are easy to configure and are always a crowd favorite. The ability to deploy on-premise or in the cloud means that organizations can configure to their preference. All in all, it is an incredibly powerful tool that leaves very few stones unturned.

Nachteile:

The three biggest drawbacks to our organization continuing with Tableau were ease of use, cost scalability and functional scalability. Tableau is not the tool for organizations that lack technical resources. It’s not as “plug and play” as other options on the market and requires significant training of architects to fully take advantage of all its capabilities. Tableau also isn’t the ideal solution if price is an obstacle in your organization. Frankly, it ain’t cheap. Depending on your desired level of investment and the number of users you’ll need, it can run the tab up quickly. Additionally, user management in Tableau itself isn’t an issue, but deployment presents its challenges. Other options on the market are much easier to introduce users to (here’s your login, go to this URL and boom, you’re good to go) whereas Tableau requires more configuration. This is dependent on which Tableau version you utilize, but there are efforts involved in scaling the platform.

The future of Big Data visualisation and processing

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: It took me some time to understand the scope and approach of Tableau. During this time i was confused and sometimes frustrated as It was hard to get static reports out of tableau. Once however I understood the magic behind it (well actually it wasn't Tableaus fault, but just me being stubborn) a whole new world of analyzing data opened up. A Magnificent, splendid, dynamic and playful way of getting answers from data and a completely new way of thinking questions to ask from my data. If you do not have to create static reports which you want to mail daily to a bunch of people but want to explre the secrets your data holds This is THE tool. Definite recommendation.

Vorteile:

Tableau is centered around you as a user asking questions to your data. It is as simple as that and it works in ways not imagined before. Via graphical user antierface and drag and drop you combine aspects of your data and visualize relations. The coolest thing is that Tableau supports you without pushing or distracting. The process is emergent and makes it possible to walk the line from coherence to causality and have fun along the way. The End results look great and can be reformated by a couple of clicks in order to shift perspective or look from a different angle or with a different point of interest towards your findings. Tableu picks you up where you are and you can run it as SAAS or on premise, depending on your preferences. Also the API is simple and powerful, making the integration as a dedicated reporting and statistcs module, or more precise data visualisation playground to your existing product easy and convenient. By doing so you can add tableaus product-versatility, ease of use and beauty to a product and participate from its user friendly and open aproach to data analysis.

Nachteile:

The licensing was a bit of a hassle as we started in the early days of tableau. Also Sales were very eager and pretty actively tried to support us. This never was a bad thing, just a bit too much. Also Tableau introduced support for document based databases rather later than earlier so we had a slight wait there. Then again, every time the did include a feature it was just bug free and worked like a charm so this was allright as well. Two things are especially important when evaluating Tableau, from my point of view: The data you whish to process with it must adhere to a minimal standard (or you will have to do a lot of conversion before you can enjoy it within tableau). So older datasources might become somewhat bothersome or at least require a preprocessing step. Most important is that you understand what tableau is for: You will have a great time when dynamically and actively exploring data, even rapidly changing data or real time streams. If you use a tool for creating static reports you waste the potential of this great piece of human engineering and might run into issues.

Tableau Recommendation

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Tableau allows complex data to be simplified by visualizing it. We can take a complicated digital marketing budget daily task and implement it via Tableau user dashboards etc. This will then open possibilities to automating specific processes that are a part of the whole task. Another point in my experience - we can totally use Tableau to create a dashboard that allows non-technical stakeholders to understand technical data via dashboards.

Vorteile:

- Amazing data visualization capabilities - Tableau can comfortably handle large amounts of data. A million rows of data can be visualized without affecting the overall performance of the dashboard - Dashboards can be built interactively using the drag & drop function - It runs effectively and efficiently across different devices & -

Nachteile:

- There seems to be no schedule or automatic refresh functionality - There is no custom visual import option available - Scaling may cause potential high costs if the organization is huge

Tableau Through My Eyes

5,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

The wide range of chart types, maps, and graphs allows me to present complex information in a visually appealing and understandable way. The intuitive drag-and-drop interface empowers me to create stunning visualizations without needing to rely on extensive coding or technical expertise. One standout feature of Tableau is its interactive dashboards. I can consolidate multiple visualizations and key metrics into a single, dynamic view. Being able to explore and interact with the data directly on the dashboard, applying filters, and drilling down into specific details, provides me with a comprehensive understanding of trends and patterns. The level of interactivity offered by Tableau truly engages my curiosity and helps me uncover insights that would have otherwise remained hidden.

Nachteile:

While Tableau offers an array of powerful features, there is a slight learning curve involved in mastering its advanced functionalities. As a beginner, I found myself needing to invest time in understanding the intricacies of certain features, such as statistical analysis and forecasting. Although Tableau provides resources and a supportive community, a more user-friendly onboarding experience or interactive tutorials would have been beneficial.

On the fly BI tool with rich visualizations and Dashboard features

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We used Tableau for Visualization BI apart from having Business Objects for reporting. We have created a story for a given subject with all the related information to present to the user. It gives a quick glance on what is happening on the sales of drug for a pharma company that I worked. Migration from non-prod to prod is very easy (unlike other BI tools). Cost of the project reduces a lot with Tableau for BI projects

Vorteile:

Tableau has changed the BI world a lot. It has brought in a software, using with business user can create dashboard & reports on the fly and can check what is there inside. It allows the user to read through the data and derive the insights without much technical analysis. First it can connect to any database (I know about 44 database it connects) and you can set the data, slice the data needed for current analysis and then you can do quick reporting. It provide multiple features, like different charts, graphs and tables and mathematical and statistical functions for analysis. Once you have create multiple visuals you can put them onto one dashboard or multiple dashboards into a story and present the same to business

Nachteile:

Even though it has rich features but it can support the Enterprise BI needs like business object or Cognos does. It does not provide all the feature for E L T (extraction, load and transform) which requires complex transactions. As data gets huge the graphs and charts become unreadable. also, this software is more useful to the business user for personal purpose than company wide reporting etc. The administration part of it needs a lot.

Tableau Dashboards

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: It is a fantastic tool and helped every sales rep tremendously however, it is the one tool where if you want the execution needed, I would recommend working with a third party vendor for help.

Vorteile:

Tableau is used for personal dashboards for each sales rep. It is the best way to capture all their macroeconomic statistics. All the clients, facilities, states they have visited and simultaneously, showing them all their results. Their net sales and % to quota. Essentially, the sales rep can view all their information in 1 dashboard and also share any information with other clients based on their historical performance.

Nachteile:

The biggest downside with Tableau is that once you create the dashboards and want to make minimal changes, such as add a new user to the total dashboard, many changes need to be done, it is not simple to completely update the data webs behind the dashboards so that they update properly.
