Ease of use or simplicity to create reports no matter how complex the requirements (multiple data integrations, pagination, etc) are from the user, it defines the core need for a reporting software or document software, especially when it involves hundreds and thousands of documents/reports on a daily basis.

Apart from speed with which the data reflects the changes applied to DB, when you make a selection on the report, data related to only that particular selection should reflect in subsequent tabs or applications. For example: if i choose a product on products tab, it's sales cost analysis, customers, orders etc... related tabs should show only that product related information.

We have been using Tableau as a reporting tool for nearly a decade. It is a powerful tool for data visualization and data analytics and can easily handle huge amounts of data. Tableau is flexible and straightforward to use. It can connect to Google Drive, to tens of databases, both structured and unstructured, either on the cloud or on-premise. In addition to this, Tableau can connect to a PDF and extract all the tables in the document. The tool has excellent drag-and-drop functionality and the screens are easy to navigate. It’s simple to create measurements and dimensions. The interface is much easier and faster to work with when compared to other competing solutions. A few major benefits of Tableau: Easy deployment: The initial setup is quick and easy. A few minutes after the setup is complete, you can create dashboards and set up gateways for databases to retrieve data. Support for programming languages: If you want, you can add custom SQL and Python code to your system. Stability: Tableau is extremely stable and its performance is great. There are no bugs or glitches. It never crashes or freezes. It's very reliable. Available support: When we contacted the support they were very good. They are always online and easy to approach. Data transformation tools: With Tableau, you have flexibility to filter and segment your data. It integrates well, but one area for improvement would be improved connections with SharePoint and OneDrive. I definitely recommend the solution. If your company wants a simple, robust and dynamic solution, Tableau is a great choice.

Hi Mr. @Frank Bianchi, Yes, you can do that but only on Professional or Enterprise Plan.  Also, you can link to Power BI and generate some different views.
