Find out in this report how the two Data Visualization solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The deployment of our solution across a number of servers using Ingres .NET has meant that we can protect the database server behind a highly secure firewall and deploy the front end solutions on a normal web server."
"The solution has great features which nobody can beat, you can do a lot of customizations, such as use different dimensions and colorize them. Additionally, you can use the numeric values for the customization, which is an exceptional feature."
"Tableau is good for routine dashboards, and it has integration with Slack, through which it can send you daily updates."
"It is very easy to implement and to use."
"The solution allows for the possibility for end-users to do their own reporting."
"While using this solution I have found the valuable features to be ease of use and the visualization. It is a complete solution."
"It is very easy to create dashboards, charts, and graphs."
"Tableau has improved my organization in a variety of ways, one of its uses being that of data analysis. A feature I have found most valuable is the ease of use and straightforwardness, in addition to the flexibility of Tableau."
"The geospatial maps representation and the visualizations are nice."
"The ability to reset the log file without stopping the DBMS would be helpful for us."
"We have products like Tableau, Power BI, Cognos, and QlikView in the data visualization segment. Compared to those, Tableau is quite costly."
"If you wanted to create something without making it an extra column in the data set, you can't just rename it to a more user-friendly short name."
"The integration with other program languages, like Python, needs to be better."
"It's already using 32 gigabytes of memory, but the performance is not so good. It's very heavy."
"With performance tuning, it generates a pretty complex query when it is not required."
"The customization in the front end is a bit difficult."
"With Tableau, when you're dealing with very large datasets, it can be slow so the performance is an area that can be improved."
"Tableau's automatic insight could be improved. It has some predefined capabilities to understand the data, but I think they need more. Customers need more insight automatically from data—they don't want to discover them, they want to get the forecast automatically. The data preparation should also be improved because it's not easy. Tableau tries to focus on the business side, but the backend side has not improved much. They also have an ETS solution, but it's limited."
